The bent-shaft Kalliste paddle from Werner provides low-angle paddlers with premium materials, enhanced control and an exceptionally light and buoyant stroke.

- REI

The Werner Kalliste's blades have an exceptionally light and buoyant feel on the water and offer silky smooth strokes. The mid-size design is perfect for average-size low-angle paddlers. The volume of the buoyant, full carbon, blade creates an exceedingly light feel for effortless and confident strokes. Curved dihedral blade face reduces "flutter" and enhances maneuverability, helping you smoothly link strokes. The oval-shaped carbon fiber shaft provides a comfortable, secure grip with a light swing weight. Werner's exclusive Smart-View(TM) adjustable ferrule gives you a convenient two-piece paddle that looks and feels like a one-piece. The Smart-View system lets you quickly and easily adjust the offset, or feather angle, of your paddle in 15 degree increments with right- or left-hand control. To keep your Smart-View Ferrule working properly, after each use take the paddle apart and rinse both parts of the ferrule thoroughly with fresh water. Store the two parts of the paddle with the blades up. And NEVER use a lubricant on the ferrule; that will collect debris. Small diameter shafts are available and recommended for paddlers whose hand (from the base of the palm to the tip of the middle finger) measures 6 1/2" or smaller.
