In addition to the recently released Stealth advanced whitewater paddle Werner have also related the Covert. Like the Stealth the Covert is an advanced/race paddle.

We did not intend the Covert to be an all-around paddle for beginners or intermediate paddlers.

From Werner:

The little sibling to the Stealth, the Covert was designed and tested closely with Dane Jackson along with some of the best paddlers in the world, the Covert is Werner’s latest advanced/race paddle.  The Covert combines our blade forward, buoyant profile, with slender edges, reducing resistance during entry and exit. 

  • Blade inserted into the shaft at the throat for seamless look and feel.
  • A mid-sized down river race inspired blade shape for a higher cadence stroke.
  • With an increased blade to shaft offset, this blade forward design gives a more powerful catch and more verticality through the power phase.
  • We’ve optimized materials and manufacturing techniques to obtain lower weight, remain strong and provide a comfortable flex. Less fatigue on your body overall, for the longer races.
