The Braca-Sport Advantage

Braca-Sport is the only company that manufactures their own paddles and shafts – it makes a difference!

Since 1991 BRAČA-SPORT has been manufacturing high-quality equipment for a wide variety of paddling sports. Our mission is to design, develop and produce the best performing paddle for every paddler. Given that each paddler has different needs, we believe that each paddle should be uniquely designed. Using the latest technology and insight from the world’s top-level coaches and athletes, our company has continued to research and develop new designs that cater to the needs of paddlers worldwide for every canoeing discipline: Canoe Polo, Dragon Boat, Flatwater, Freestyle, Marathon Canoeing, Ocean Racing, Outrigger, Slalom, Surfski, Touring, and Wildwater.

With a total of 90 different types of canoe and kayak blades available in over 8500 configurations, we guarantee that we have the right paddle for everyone.

Our uniqueness derives from the fact that we produce our own raw carbon fabrics and materials for our paddles. Our fine-grain unidirectional high modulus carbon (HMC) fabrics are manufactured and layered right in our factories. We’ve come up with an original blend of composite fibers and epoxy resin, as well as our own layering methods to deliver products of ultimate durability, flexibility and precision.

We take pride in our many innovations — most notably, the ‘tear-drop’ blade concept, which redefined paddle performance and has become the industry standard blade form. We were also the first to develop and produce paddles specifically designed for children and youth, as well as those for recreational and senior paddlers. We are constantly developing our products based on the feedback from our broad customer community ranging from hobby paddlers to world class athletes.

Wins on World Stage

Designer, developer and producer of the largest paddle selection in the world

Our blade designs offer a multitude of options. The globally acclaimed Braca IV stands out as one of the most popular kayak paddles worldwide. You can choose a IV style paddle in sizes ranging from 610 to 840. Given the growing preference for smaller paddle sizes, our surfski and marathon selections are particularly popular in sizes under 700. However, Braca also caters to serious sprint athletes and those who prefer a larger paddle, and we also offer larger sizes. Among our bestsellers are sizes ranging from 705 to 735. To address evolving needs, Braca continuously introduces new sizes. This year, we’ve released the IV 720 and 750, along with the XI 720 and 805, ensuring a comprehensive range to meet all requirements.

The Braca IV and Braca I design cover these blade sizes! Constructions include …

Art of scaling paddle sizes

Sizing blades for smaller options requires deep experience in wing paddle design and manufacturing. A Braca core difference lies in actively tuning small blades, with non-symmetric shapes and twist, to match the characteristics of larger blades. Essentially, this means that engineers skillfully adjust smaller blades to exhibit the same features as larger ones, particularly when dealing with asymmetrical shapes and incorporating twist and curve.

Braca serves the youth and club market by small blades and specialized shafts.
