The Rio is a great blade for beginners, starting to paddle whitewater.
A higher surface area above the centre line on the blade makes for a great river running paddle that also helps increase the efficiency of your forward paddling. Werner are able to provide an impact and wear resistant blade that comes at a lower price, this is due to blade being injection moulded nylon, reinforced with fibreglass. The Rio four piece paddle is also perfect as a cost effective safety paddle, packing down and saving you valuable space.
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 Blade Shape
Asymmetrical kayak blades are designed for a balanced forward stroke by reducing the flutter on each 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.
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.
