Exceptionally quiet, light and buoyant, the Athena is the smart choice for smaller kayakers who have a low-angle style of paddling. The sleek blades make touring feel almost effortless.
Performance Core carbon fiber blades are light, buoyant and exceptionally durable.
Curved dihedral blade face reduces "flutter" and enhances maneuverability, helping you smoothly link strokes.
Werner's patented Adjustable Ferrule System provides two-piece convenience without sacrificing strength. It also allows you to customize the blade offset or "feather angle."
Small shaft option is available. To know if you need a small diameter shaft, measure your hand from the base of the palm to the tip of your middle finger. If your measurement is 6 1/4" or smaller you should try a small shaft. You can also print the "Shaft Diameter Print Out" in the Links section and use it to measure your hand.
