Thrive 95

Utilizing the same great fiberglass shaft, and LeverLock system, as the Vibe, step up to a stiffer and lighter fiberglass blade with the Thrive. You’ll feel cleaner, more powerful strokes and feel less fatigue all day long.

  • With decades of design experience, we saw a need to innovate blade shape. Our longer, rectangular, slender design is easier on the body with a more gentle catch. Higher cadence and less fatigue without sacrificing blade size and power.
  • Dihedral, the ridge down the middle of the power face, allows for smooth and stable forward paddling. A core philosophy for Werner.
  • Our fiberglass shafts now feature the 16” LeverLock adjustable system. One-size fits paddler heights between 4'10" and 6'2" with easy on-the-fly adjustment.
  • Advanced Fit options to outfit your needs. Choose our fiberglass straight shaft in fixed length for lightest weight, a 16” LeverLock adjustable system or our 3-piece travel breakdown also with LeverLock.
  • When shopping our Standard Performance, you’ll see Werner's heritage for a better paddling paddle, at introductory prices.
  • A combination of hand craftsmanship and advanced molding techniques gives you our light swing weight, stiff fiberglass blade. High color graphics enhance the bright yellow blade.
  • Our fiberglass shaft gives you light weight and less fatigue, at a more modest price. Standard with the “Tweener” size, it gives a diameter that fits well for all hand sizes.

Performance Level
Standard

For those that take a more casual approach to paddling, we still want you to experience the feel of a Werner Paddle on the water.

Blade Designs
10 Degree blade offset

10 Degree blade to shaft offset is utilized to help the Versatile use paddler excel. For the paddler who does a bit of everything, some touring, surfing, fishing, fitness, the compromise for forward paddling and bracing is 10 degree.

Blade Dihedral-Stand Up Paddle

Dihedral blade shape was created to direct water to flow evenly off each side of the blade creating a smooth and stable stroke.

Standard Fiberglass

Standard performance blades are both lighter and more stiff than our injection molded blades.

Blade Shape
SUP Blade Shape

The innovators of the Long Slender Rectangular blade shape. Our blade shape is far and away the most gentle on the body with a softer feel and higher cadence without having to sacrifice blade surface area.

Shaft Features
Wrapped FG - Straight

"Wrapped" refers to the process in how these shafts are made. Different from our upper end shafts, you can feel the comfortable outside layer.

SUP 16” LeverLock Taped Wrapped Shaft

The LeverLock System offers 16 inches of adjustment to fit a wide range of paddler heights.

SUP Tweener shaft

The "Tweener" size shaft was designed to be the perfect compliment to our Family Adjustable system. With a diameter between our Small Fit and Standard Fit, "Tweener" truly fits a variety of hand sizes.
