    Bring on the rough water! With the Werner Cyprus bent-shaft carbon paddle in your hands, maneuverability is simply a matter of putting the high-angle blades below the surface.

    • Mid-size blades are designed with power and bracing in mind, yet are surprisingly easy to pull through the water during extended trips
    • High-quality, continuous-weave carbon fiber shaft delivers a superior strength-to-weight ratio
    • Bent shaft naturally aligns wrists, providing immediate comfort and reducing strain; a special grip area that fits the natural contour of your hand increases overall control
    • Smart View Adjustable Ferrule System allows elegant adjustment of feathering angle from 0° - 60° right or left in 15° increments
    • Improved ferrule design eliminates external stickers by incorporating a small window which displays an internal printing of offset degrees
    • Low-profile button release makes paddle feel like 1 piece
    • Carbon fiber/foam core blades create a distinctive profile that enters and exits the water quietly while adding buoyancy for a light stroke
    • Blade design with ribless back smooths the sculling stroke and creates an elegant exit from the water
    • Pronounced dihedral power face reduces flutter to create exceptionally smooth, yet powerful, forward stroke
    • Asymmetrical shape reduces torque, allowing the paddle to pull smoothly through the water without the need for a tight grip
    • Remarkably light swing weight reduces overall fatigue on long paddling excursions
    • Drip rings help keep hands and lap dry
    • 2-piece design breaks down quickly and eases transport and storage
    • The Werner Cyprus kayak paddle is carefully handcrafted in Sultan, Washington, using a pressure molding process to achieve the right balance between weight and durability

    Made in USA.

    Werner Cyprus Kayak Paddle - Carbon Bent-Shaft is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and smooth I have about 500 miles on this paddle now. I have been sea kayaking for over 20 years here in Alaska with a lot of long trips under my belt. I have been using Werner paddles all that time. My most recent paddles have been an all-carbon Camano straight shaft and a bent shaft carbon Kalliste, both in a 240 cm length. But I have to say that the 220 cm Cyprus is now my favorite, and I can still use a low-angle stroke with my low deck/narrow boat. I am 5' 11" with long arms. I used to get a pretty sore, fatigued feeling between my shoulder blades on long trips. I figured this was just part of averaging around 30 miles a day for weeks on end, but since going to shorter and shorter paddles I am (finally) realizing that a less powerful blade and a shorter shaft combined with a higher cadence just puts less stress on my muscles and tendons. In a following sea the short Cyprus sometimes seems a little undersized, but at the end of a long day or when bucking a wind chop the power seems about perfect. The thick, foam core of the Kalliste and Cyprus paddle blades reduces the bubbles entrained in the eddy behind the blade and results in a smooth feel during the pull and does make the paddle feel light in the water, though I don't feel it 'pops' out of the water at the end of the stroke like some folks report. The low swing weight and reasonable blade face size do reduce fatigue, no question. I considered the Ikelos but I'm glad I went with the smaller Cyprus blade. The thick edge of the blade tip seems to have a very durable rim of plastic sandwiched between the carbon faces and numerous rock encounters has yet to do any damage whatsoever to the blade. I never had any wrist issues with straight shaft paddles though I do like the bent shaft feel now that I'm used to it. It has mostly resulted in a more connected feel to the paddle since I can wrap all my fingers evenly around the shaft during all parts of the stroke. The Cyprus and Kalliste shafts are perhaps a bit too smooth though, and a little more texture and friction might result in being able to hold the paddle a bit looser and still maintain control. As it is I usually keep my hands damp by dipping them in the water regularly or using a thin layer of paddle/surf wax. The ferrule system is very nice and results in an extremely solid and slop-free connection between the paddle halves. A great paddle overall. Expensive, but the current pinnacle of design and construction.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paddle One of the reviewers stated that the paddle was a little to smooth and I agree with him but what I did was what I do with a lot of the handles on my tools and sporting stuff ( bow grip, pistol grip etc.) I go to Dick's sporting goods store and purchase one of many types of tennis racket grip wraps and wrap the handle with that for a bigger grip (my hands are large) and a more secure feel! They come in all types: leather, gauze, absorbent etc.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paddle I have had this Cyprus Bent shaft paddle for a couple of weeks and really like it. It is very light and bouyant, and I really like the bent shaft!
