Before even getting to the water, you will feel the balance and see the beauty of the Zen 85. Werner’s Premium fiberglass process blends perfection in craftsmanship and materials for a stiff, light, elegant-looking blade. The carbon shaft helps keep the overall weight down and adds a perfect overall flex to the paddle.
Fiberglass Blade - Material choice and manufacturing skill are applied to make the fiberglass blade on the Zen, and allow a perfect combination of light swing weight, stiffness and durability.
Blade Design - The long, slender, rectangular blade is easier on the body with a more gentle catch. You get higher cadence and less fatigue without sacrificing blade size and power.
Blade Dihedral - Dihedral on the power face directs water flow evenly off each side of the blade, creating a smooth and stable stroke.
Carbon Shaft - The premium carbon shaft is expertly engineered in house with a higher percentage of carbon materials versus fiberglass, maintaining optimized flex and strength, and designed to be comfortable in all applications.
