Working alongside our engineers (2 accomplished boaters in their own right) some of the best down river and creek racers in the world did what the samurai did, designed and forged the most advanced tool for its purpose. Like they did, generations before us, we bring you the Odachi. No longer does going fast mean you have to worry about your paddle, now that whitewater race meets Werner's Bomber reliability. Blade designs and optimized manufacturing and materials to go fast forward. Get ready to find another gear.
