Exceptionally quiet, light and buoyant, the Werner Athena is the smart choice for smaller kayakers who have a low-angle style of paddling. The sleek blades make touring feel almost effortless.
Werner's exclusive Neutral Bent Shaft positions your hands for the best balance, comfort and control, helping reduce discomfort in your wrists and arms.
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 exclusive Smart-View™ adjustable ferrule gives you a convenient two-piece paddle that looks and feels like a one-piece.
The Smart-View system lets you quickly and easily adjust the offset, or feather angle, of your paddle in 15 degree increments with right- or left-hand control.
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 you 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.
