The Rio offers an advanced river running blade design at an introductory price. Mid-size blades are so well balanced and easy to use that we highly recommend the Rio for all entrants into whitewater who demand good paddle performance.
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.
The combination of fiberglass and nylon are impact and wear resistant at a lower price point.
Asymmetrical kayak blades are designed for a balanced forward stroke by reducing the flutter on each stroke.
With a more pronounced tip and more surface area above the center of the blade, this design is optimized for a better forward stroke.
Built for the rigors of the whitewater environment, our fiberglass shafts have the highest level of strength.
Bring bomber reliability on the plane or stow it in your boat for safety. The center ferrule is a traditional stainless steel button system.
