Werner Shuna Glass bladed kayak paddle with neutral bent shaft. The Shuna is the high angle paddle for those looking for a mid sized blade area. Built to an excellent standard, the Shuna comes fitted with the Werner Smart View Adjustable split system.
A great all-round touring and sea kayak paddle with a nice size blade for longer trips along the coast. The smaller blade size reduces the fatigue that can come with a larger paddle, alowing you to go further and see more.
The fibreglass blades offer the best balance of weight and abrasion resistance, with a dihedral design that lets water flow evenly over the blade. Combined with an asymmetrical shape, this creates a nice smooth movement through the water. We have demo paddles in-store for you to try on the canal, so you can feel it for yourself!
Neutral Bent Shaft
Bent shaft aligns your wrists in a more ergonomic position to reduce fatigue while grasping the shaft for the confidence of full hand contact. Proper ergonomic hand, wrist and forearm position alleviates stress and strain and the potential for injury. A loose grip also promotes ergonomics, along with better overall technique, and some paddlers want the confidence of knowing if they do over grip due to habit or advanced conditions they are protected. This is especially important to those with pre-existing injuries. Taking design a step further, we innovated "Neutral Bent." We achieve this by lining up all parts of the paddle in one straight line. The blades, the grip area and the ferrule. This allows for the familiar feel of a straight shaft paddle, making finesse strokes and rolling much easier and allowing for a seamless transition for those switching from straight to bent. Further attention to detail went into our indexing. We tested to best fit the hand, give secure full hand contact, better control and comfort even with a loose grip. Bent shaft has a slight penalty in weight and cost, but the trade off is the confidence in knowing you are protecting your body for the longevity of your paddling.
