Ovation Carbon Bent Shaft Two-Piece Kayak Paddle

The Werner Ovation Carbon Bent Shaft Kayak paddle is an extremely lightweight, elegant touring paddle. It features performance core blades that have an exceptionally light buoyant feel on the water and silky smooth strokes that make paddling all day long feel effortless. The thin edges create a smooth entrance and exit from the water. The ergonomic bent shaft reduces fatigue in the wrists. The Ovation is the ultimate choice for low angle paddlers who want exceptional quality. It comes in its own embroidered fleece storage bag. The Ovation is not intended for the surf zone or any extreme paddling condition.

With 50 years in the making, Werner is honored to have the "Ovation" carry on. In honor of the man who started it all, the Werner Sr. Edition Ovation is the culmination of decades of experience on the water and in the R&D room, working with composite materials and construction. Ultimate performance taken to a higher level with the Ovation; the lightest, best paddling paddle has no detail overlooked, even down to the custom drip rings. The feeling on the water is fitting of the name.

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
Low Angle

Low Angle

Low angle paddles feature blades which are long and narrow and meant to be inserted into the water closer to parallel with the surface of the water. If your top hand stays around shoulder height you are utilizing a low angle technique. This style of paddling is very efficient and commonly used for more recreational paddling or when covering long distances and will benefit from conserving energy and reduced fatigue.
