Ovation Carbon Straight Shaft Two-Piece Kayak Paddle

With 50 years in the making, Wener 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.




ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE

Our Ultimate Performance brings together all of our most advanced designs. Paddles that offer Ultimate Performance have an exceptionally light, buoyant and quiet feel on the water.


  • Ultimate performance, to a higher level with the Ovation. Our lightest best paddling paddle has no detail overlooked, even down to the custom drip rings.
  • The volume of the buoyant, full carbon, blade creates an exceedingly light feel for effortless and confident strokes.
  • Smooth back face and thinner edges allow for a quieter catch and effortless exit of the stroke.
  • Dihedral allows for smooth and stable forward paddling, a core philosophy for Werner.
  • Mid-sized blades are an ideal fit for the great majority of average size paddlers.
  • Optimized flex and strength. Choose our carbon Straight or Neutral Bent shaft in Standard or Small Diameter.
  • Reduced weight means reduced strength. Not intended for extreme conditions. Use proper technique when practicing rescues and re-entries.
  • The Smart View Adjustable ferrule is the most simple, precise fitting on the market. The solid feel of a 1-piece paddle and nothing to snag your gear.

Choosing the proper shaft size (diameter of the shaft) for your hands assures a more comfortable experience on the water. You'll maintain a lighter grip for better technique, allowing better control and reduced fatigue. Measure your hand size by placing a ruler at the base of your hand (at the joint of your wrist) and measuring to the tip of your middle finger. If you measure smaller than 6.5" we suggest small shaft. Longer, go to our standard shaft. If you are on the line, we suggest you try both at an authorized Werner dealer and see for yourself. Paddlers with shorter, thicker fingers also gravitate to small 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.

Low Angle
Straight Shaft

Straight Shaft

Straight shaft kayak paddles are the most common choice among paddlers and are ideal for those that like a traditional, simple feel. Straight paddles will save weight and cost while allowing for more variety in hand position.
