Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Werner Side Kick Carbon Bent Shaft Paddle's large blades offer an excellent combination of power and responsiveness for strong, well conditioned play boaters.45 degree blade offset significantly reduces wind resistance on the forward stroke for more efficient paddling.Carbon fiber continuous-weave blades for exceptional strength-to-weight ratio and long-lasting durability.Larger blades are ideal for well conditioned play boaters and paddlers who love to run big rivers and creeks.Werner's exclusive Neutral Bent Shaft positions your hands for the best balance, comfort and control, helping reduce discomfort in your wrists and arms.Down-tilt blades enter the water sooner for more initial power and won't get in your way for free-style moves.
The Werner Side Kick has an advanced blade design well suited for pulling off the latest play moves. Its downward tilting blades give great initial power in forward and reverse strokes, and the larger blade size works well for stronger paddlers. Carbon construction reduces weight while maintaining stiffness and strength. The aggressive design is perfect for the "tricksters" of the sport, but shouldn't be ruled out if you're not an advanced paddler.Also, the Sidekick paddle is available in two shaft types, Straight or Neutral Bent Shaft. Both have their advantages: Paddlers are more familiar with straight shafts and like the light weight and ability to move their hands along a predictable, straight, and continuous grip area. Straight shafts are typically less expensive. The Werner Neutral Bent Shaft naturally aligns your wrist to reduce stress on joints. The neutral alignment, unique to Werner Paddles, creates a stable leverage point for bracing and all types of paddle strokes. Special indexing allows more hand contact with the shaft, reducing fatigue and increasing comfort.
