The new Werner Apex paddle is here to keep you at the top of your racing game, just like top SUP racers that are making this their paddle of choice. The Apex is built for powerful performance and designed with comfort in mind to keep you going. Werner shaped the Apex blade with a unique power pocket that provides a reliable catch and stable pull in the power phase of your stroke for ultimate speed. The foam core carbon fiber blade helps you maintain a smooth stroke with a buoyant lightweight construction that also provides easy release. The smaller, 76 inch squared blade accommodates a higher cadence for faster paddling and offers increased efficiency as you move across the water. Paddle as long as you please with an ergonomic palm grip and 10 degree blade offset that give comfortable control and stroke versatility for relaxing days when you aren't pushing it to the max.
