Braca IX

HYBRID (FUSION) MODEL

  • Brača IX paddle
 

Brača IX is engineered using advanced kinetic, bio-mechanical and material science concepts to combine the best characteristics from multiple paddle designs into one hybrid model.

The revolutionary idea enables the paddle to provide different characteristics during each phase of the stroke (catch, drive and exit). It has a very firm catch, and then transitions to the smooth medium power drive and effortless and forgiving exit.

You can also choose the stiffness of the shaft. We recommend a stiffer shaft for bigger blades but any combination is possible. See the shaft stiffness measurement prodecure and parameter table below.

Shaft Stiffness Measurement

All Brača IX paddles are available with an Adjustable Shaft System. This allows elegant adjustment of overall paddle length (within 5cm range) and blade angle from 0° to 80° right or left in 5° increments. The system also allows you to disassemble the paddle into two parts for easy transportation.  IMPORTANT!
Always clean your adjustable shaft regularly!
Store your adjustable paddle disassembled if
not used for more than two weeks!
See the maintenance page for details.
