Werner Sherpa 4-Piece Paddle – 197cm

Along with its larger bladed sibling the Powerhouse, the Werner Sherpa is our toughest and highest performance 4-piece breakdown whitewater paddle. We recommend the Powerhouse for well conditioned paddlers looking for extra power in a full sized blade, and the Sherpa for paddlers wanting a quicker stroke and a little less power.

The Werner Sherpa is an all-time classic whitewater paddle. Watch most all whitewater kayak videos today, or footage where the paddler is being swallowed by massive holes amidst canyon walls. Now, what paddle do they have? Trusted on the hardest runs in the world and those firing up the hardest line on their local run are the Werner river running paddles the Sherpa and its larger sibling, the Powerhouse.

For whitewater packrafters, we offer the Sherpa’s bomber reliability in a 4-piece 197cm breakdown version.  We have found 195-200cm an ideal length for whitewater packrafting and there is no tougher 4-piece whitewater paddle on the market. If you are looking for absolute reliability on difficult backcountry whitewater, the Sherpa is a clear choice.
