Braca IV Down River

DOWN RIVER MODEL

  • Brača IV paddle

 

Brača IV is available with Marathon and Down River blade construction. This is a result of advanced technology, a proprietary blend of composite materials, and was designed with the marathon and adventure paddler in mind.

The Brača IV Down River is available with stiff and soft shaft construction options. The edge of the blade is reinforced with an aluminium and titanium layer that makes it highly impact resistant in extreme downriver conditions.

The edge of the Brača IV Marathon blade is reinforced with a kevlar layer that makes it highly impact resistant in extreme downriver conditions and marathon racing.

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 procedure and parameter table below.

Shaft Stiffness Measurement

All Brača IV Marathon and Down River 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.
