Werner Powerhouse


Paddled through the hardest rapids of the ‘Stikine’ and over 100ft waterfalls, Werner’s ‘Powerhouse’ is trusted on the hardest runs in the world.

Suited for running rivers and steep creeks the confidence inspiring full sized blades and reinforced spine provides stiffness and increased overall strength. The Dihedral design directs water off the blade equally for smooth and stable forward paddling overall creating an extremely powerful and smooth paddle offering ‘bomber reliability’ allowing you to boof with ease and keep you on your line through rapids keeping you out of sticky situations.

Available in either vibrant red Glass blades or Carbon blades the material choice provides a perfect combination of weight and stiffness. The optional neural bent shaft enables you to paddle all day with comfort and lack of strain on your wrists preventing injury over time.

The Powerhouse is the go to paddle for river running for all grades. Whether you’re a beginner learning a bomb proof roll or an experienced paddler stepping up your steep creeking skills, the powerhouse’s large blades allow you to tackle every feature downriver with confidence.


  • Premium Performance uses material choice and manufacturing skill to allow for a perfect combination of light swing weight and stiffness. Fiberglass blade construction gives you a compromise between swing weight and value.

  • Dihedral allows for smooth and stable forward paddling, a core philosophy for Werner.
