Werner Stikine Bent Shaft Standard Kayak Paddle


The Stikine uses Werners most advanced technology in this river running paddle. Decades of testing on the river have led Werner to designs worthy of this paddles namesake. Combined with Bomber construction for confidence for when the river fights back, it is no wonder it is the paddle trusted by the word’s best.

Product info


  • Ultimate performance brings together all of Werners most advanced designs.
  • The volume of the buoyant, full carbon, blade gives confidence for rolling and bracing, especially in aerated rapids.
  • Dihedral allows for smooth and stable forward paddling, a core philosophy for Werner.
  • With white water specific reinforcement channels, our low-profile back face design allows for a quieter catch and effortless exit of the stroke while maintaining strength.
  • Dynel® edges and Kevlar® reinforcement protect the paddle from the rigors of the whitewater environment.
  • Mid-sized blades are an ideal fit for the great majority of average size paddlers or those looking for higher cadence and less fatigue on longer rapids.
  • Optimized flex and strength.
  • Although their Ultimate performance paddles are far and away the best paddling, their unique design characteristics and materials do not make them Werners most impact resistant. Look to theirPremium paddles for the highest impact resistance.
