A powerful paddle for running rivers with speed.

River runners rejoice, because the Werner Powerhouse Paddle is here to give you all the power you need to move fast in technical water. Carbon shaft construction makes this paddle feel light in your hand, and the balanced shape of the full-size fiberglass blade means clean catches and more purchase with every stroke. Raise your hand if you like endless hand placement options and buttery smooth performance—wow, that's a ton of hands.

  • Full-size blade features a shape that results in more power and a clean catch that makes every stroke feel smooth and clean
  • Blade features a slight dihedral shape that directs water away from the blade face for the smoothest feel when maneuvering and pulling hard
  • Continuous-weave fiberglass material makes for one of the strongest and lightest blades available
  • Straight shaft is lighter than bent-shaft designs and it allows for the widest range of hand-placement options
  • Standard Diameter shaft fits hands six-and-a-half inches or larger

Taking down some rapids

A Happy customer enjoying some time on the river with this paddle, i'd say the paddle is working out well.


Solid paddle that can move water

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I have had the 200cm version of this paddle ever since I started kayaking and I have never had any complaints. It is definitely a light paddle, and it's about half the cost of the carbon fiber variant, so although its not cheap per se, losing it or breaking it won't cost a months rent to replace.

The paddle moves water very effectively, making it ideal for creek paddlers and river runners alike. I'm still young, and the straight shaft hasn't been a problem for me to deal with. If bent shaft is your thing, I know Werner makes a bent shaft version of just about all their paddles, but they may need to be custom ordered?

I'm 6'1" so the 200 cm paddle was ideal for me according to the useful "choose a paddle" feature on Werner's website. If you're not sure which Werner paddle/length is for you, I would advise using Werner's tool to get a good idea.

So far, so good!

Exactly what I wanted

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This paddle is super light weight and is exactly what I needed.

When will you be getting 200cm paddles...

When will you be getting 200cm paddles back in stock?

Unfortunately we will not be getting any more of these in the 200cm length.

Did you discontinue the powerhouse, or is it just out of season?


The Standard

    Have had this out mostly on low volume rivers class III and IV, handled it all well. Perfect blade size for me, prefer a more powerful catch, though it never felt like too much paddle. The fiberglass straight shaft is so light, I'm not sure why you would need to go with carbon. I am 6'1" and went with the 200cm, figured that would give the paddle a longer period of fitting well after the edges wear down a bit.
