Werner designed the Small Fit Nitro Stand Up Paddle to deliver the same power and efficiency as other paddles, but to more easily fit a smaller sized paddler. The carbon straight shaft delivers excellent power transfer with each stroke and, weighing in at just 16 ounces, this paddle won't tire you out after a few hours. The rectangular carbon blade sports a dihedral shape that allows for smooth, stable forward paddling at all times. The seven degree offset from blade to shaft provides excellent forward pull, but won't get snagged in the surf when you're catching some waves. Dynel edges help to protect your paddle for a long time to come.
