The Nitro Stand Up Paddle is Werner's top of the line versatile use paddle, featuring full carbon fiber construction and a buoyant, foam core blade. The fully carbon construction makes the paddle 3 ounces lighter than the next paddle down the line the Soul, while offering superb stiffness for optimal power transfer. The buoyant blade floats up at the end of the paddle stroke for more effortless paddling, and its progressive rectangular shape provides consistent power transfer when the paddle is dipped into the water at varying depths, while making it possible to paddle closer to the board for improved efficiency and comfort. New for this year, the Nitro's grip upgrades to fully carbon fiber, and the paddle features three different blade size options to better suit varying paddler sizes and paddling styles. The small blade size is suited to smaller paddlers, those who prefer a higher paddling cadence or need to be gentler on their joints the medium size fits the widest range of paddlers and the full size suits larger, well conditioned paddlers.
