Ikelos Carbon Bent Shaft Two-Piece Kayak Paddle

The carbon foam core construction gives me that clean and efficient stroke while the bent shaft means I can take advantage of the larger more powerful blade without aggravating my fickle wrists. The Ikelos is a beast, unless you want the most power you can get, the Cyprus is a better fit for most. Drew P.

You’ll feel exceptionally light, buoyant strokes while the smooth back face gives a quiet entrance and exit from the water. The award winning Ikelos is the smart choice for those playing or cruising with a high-angle style of paddling and wanting the powerful feel of a full-sized blade.

Bent Shaft

Bent Shaft

Bent paddle shafts allow you to align your wrists in a more ergonomic position, reducing strain and fatigue while maintaining the confidence of full hand contact. Werner's neutral bent shaft design keeps the blade, ferrule and grip in a straight line for a familiar feel of a straight shaft, making finesse strokes and rolling much easier and allows for a seamless transition for those switching from straight shaft to bent shaft paddles.

Bent Shaft
High Angle

High Angle

High angle paddle blades are typically shorter and wider and meant to be inserted into the water closer to perpendicular in relation to the surface of the water. The Blade enters the water sooner, providing more power to quickly enact change to the kayak when needed while keeping the blade in close to the side of your boat and tracking straighter. High angle paddling will take a bit more energy to use, however, making them more suited for dynamic paddling situations.
