Braca VIII

TEAR-DROP MODEL

  • Brača VIII paddle

Brača VIII is based on the latest innovative blade concept. It was designed and engineered to facilitate a softer catch and generation of smooth, precise and consistent strokes.



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 VIII 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.
