[ kuh - list - uh ] Greek, meaning the "best", which describes its feeling on the water.
The Kalliste is Werner's most advanced low-angle paddle, with their best paddling design and construction features. You’ll feel exceptionally light, buoyant strokes while the smooth back face gives a quiet entrance and exit from the water. The Kalliste is the smart choice for those touring with a low-angle style of paddling and wanting the conservative yet powerful feel of a mid-sized blade. Ultimate performance brings together all of our most advanced designs. Mid-sized blades are an ideal fit for the great majority of average size paddlers. The volume of the buoyant, full carbon, blades creates an exceedingly light feel for effortless and confident strokes. Dynel® blade edges use a composite roping material, that is impact and abrasion resistant. This, along with a stronger design and construction, makes the Kalliste the choice over our Ovation model for more rugged paddling enviornments. Dihedral allows for smooth and stable forward paddling, a core philosophy for Werner. Smooth back face makes for cleaner entry and exit of your strokes and an elegant feel on the water. Optimized flex and strength.
