About the Braca IV Racing Paddle

The Most Popular Racing Paddle in the World!

The Braca IV is an Olympic & World Championship kayak paddle with many blade and shaft configurations to accommodate all athletes. The Braca IV wing paddle is a versatile teardrop design that is available in scaled versions to accommodate all paddlers. Here are some other Configurations of the Braca IV blade design:
  • Braca I Braca I is the same paddle design as the Braca I but in a larger scale for competitors seeking larger blades.
  • Braca IV Carbon 60 The Braca IV Carbon 60, paired with a 19k or 21k shaft, is a more flexible 60% carbon blade at a competitive price for K1 Racing Clubs, K1 Youth, and Elders. Note that the Barbon 60 blades run a little heavier and are also priced less that full carbon.
  • Braca Children The Braca Children paddle is the I, IV design scaled for youth-sized kayakers and available in 610 or 635. Braca Children has a smaller diameter shaft. If you prefer a standard-size shaft (maybe to attach bigger blades later) then the smallest Braca IV blades, 610 or 635,  are a better choice. The smallest Braca IV blades are the exact blade as Braca Children but with a standard-size shaft.
  • Braca IV Surfski Matte Black Sleek black matte surfski blades with an Oscar Chalupsky special edition shaft.
Competing and training? Don't miss the other possible kayak paddles: 
  • Braca XI Van Dusen ’92 Our best-selling paddle is the Braca XI Van Dusen ’92. The XI Van Dusen is also a great choice for ICF kayak sprinters and is used by World Champions and top surf skiers alike. The Braca XI (11) is also available in sizes for larger sprinters through youth sizes.  The Braca XI was added due to high demand from competitive racers and team riders, it is one of our top sellers in the USA. It is a more dramatic twist teardrop with smoothly delivered power at all stages of the forward stroke and delivers smooth power at all cadences.
  • Braca VII Due to the special shape, this blade feels bigger compared to a normal ‘tear-drop’ blade with the same area size, such as the Braca I & IV shape. Braca VII are typically used for marathon and sprint, depending on the size of the paddler. Braca VI, a larger version of the same extreme teardrop as the VII, are more typically sprint paddles due to their large size. The VII is a favorite with many top competitors.
