The Trance 85 1-Piece SUP Paddle by Werner is for the paddler looking to go further, faster and stay on the water longer. The Trance has all the balance and buoyancy of the Flow, but by using an advanced full carbon layup it is able to achieve a staggering low weight.

The volume of a buoyant designed carbon blade creates an exceedingly light feel, popping the blade from the water for effortless forward strokes and confident bracing. A smooth back face is quiet and helps to make linking turning strokes easy. The Trance has a long slender rectangular blade shape that is far and away the most gentle on the body, providing a softer feel and higher cadence without having to sacrifice blade surface area. The smooth back face is quiet and helps to make linking turning strokes easy, while the smaller-sized blade suits those wanting to limit exertion and to those of smaller to mid-size stature. The dihedral blade directs water flow evenly off each side of the blade, creating a smooth and stable stroke. A 10 degree shaft to blade offset keeps the blade more vertical through the power phase, benefitting your forward paddling, but still giving a good compromise in waves and for bracing. It is perfect for the paddler who does a bit of everything - some touring, surfing, fishing, fitness, yoga - you name it, the Trance can handle it. The Trance's carbon blend shaft helps keep the overall weight down, and perfectly balances paddle flex. With no moving parts to move or bend, you get more comfort and control, and the ability to feel the precision of every one of your strokes. The carbon palm grip is the most comfortable grip on the market today. You can keep a loose grip, reducing fatigue and wear and tear on your joints, while the width enables more blade control. SUP Small Fit is available on Werner's most popular SUP paddles, you can now match smaller blades with a small diameter shaft and innovative small sized grip. Performance starts with the proper fit and you will immediately be able to grasp with a lighter grip for better technique and to eliminate fatigue. The low weight, amazing feel, and smooth stable strokes make the Werner Trance 85 1-Piece SUP paddle your must-have, go-to choice.

General SUP Sizing Guidelines:

  • Surf/Whitewater – add approximately 8” to your height

  • Tour/Race/Fitness/Yoga - add approximately 10” to your height
  • Note: Paddle length may vary depending on conditions and personal preference. Please use these sizing charts as a general guideline

    Small Fit Shaft Sizing:

    measure your hand size by placing a ruler at the base of your hand (at the joint of your wrist) and measuring to the tip of your middle finger. If you measure smaller than 6.5" we suggest small shaft. Longer, go to the standard shaft. Paddlers with shorter, thicker fingers also gravitate to small shafts.
