The Desperado offers unrivaled paddle performance at a price that should be outlawed! With mid-size blades utilizing our premium river running blade design the Desperado is well balanced, easy to use and affordable.
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.
Dihedral blade shape was created to direct water to flow evenly off each side of the blade creating a smooth and stable stroke.
Asymmetrical kayak blades are designed for a balanced forward stroke by reducing the flutter on each stroke.
Using recycled carbon with a mix of nylon, these blades are lighter and stiffer than our fiberglass reinforced injection molded nylon blades.
With a more pronounced tip and more surface area above the center of the blade, this design is optimized for a better forward stroke.
For those that like a traditional, simple feel. Our attention to detail in texture, indexing and flex allows for confident control and comfort all day long.
Available in Small or Standard diameter. Dial in your fit for better control, more comfort and less fatigue. Smaller built paddlers tend to like the feel of small shaft.
Built for the rigors of the whitewater environment, our fiberglass shafts have the highest level of strength.
