How to Order Custom Kayak Paddle Length

Paddle length is entered as a range, 5 cm or 10 cm

Braca paddles are assembled to order using your custom paddle length. The shaft you select will have an adjustable range of 5 cm (stiffer shafts) or 10 cm (more flexible shafts). To assemble your paddle we need the shortest and longest length in cm. For example, a Braca IV with an 06K shaft might be 210 – 215 cm. A Braca XI with a 19K shaft might be 210 – 220 cm.

Shafts are cut from both ends to maintain balance.

We take your shaft length minimum and cut the shaft equally from each end.

O2K through 17K are stiffer shafts and have 5 cm of range. 18K shafts are for Down river blades. 19K, 21K are all around shafts that may also be used on both surski and K1 so the extra range of 10 cm can accomodate different seat heights. 10K shafts are for the Carbon 60 blade and have 10 cm adjustment.
