Powerhouse

Watch most all creek boat videos today or footage where the paddler is being swallowed by massive holes amidst canyon walls. Now what paddle do they have? Trusted on the hardest runs in the world and those firing up the hardest line on their local run are the Werner river running paddles. The Powerhouse and its smaller counterpart the Sherpa offer Bomber reliability, tested and proven where it counts.

Blade Designs
Blade Dihedral

Asymmetrical Blade Shape

Asymmetrical kayak blades are designed for a balanced stroke, reducing torque or twisting of the blade.

Blade Shape
River Running

With a more pronounced tip and more surface area above the center of the blade, this design is optimized for a better forward stroke.
