Higher Stiffness # = Softer Shaft
Stiffness # is deflection in mm with 10kg weight

Braca paddle shaft thickness, How deflection is measured

We recommend a stiffer shaft for bigger blades but any combination is possible. See the shaft stiffness measurement procedure and parameter table.

19K: Stiffness = 4.5. Designed in collaboration with Oscar Chalupsky for the Surfski market, or anyone looking for the softest, lightweight 100% carbon shaft on the market. 10cm of adjustment.

17K: Stiffness = 3.3. Less popular, but often used for paddlers who feel the 19K may be too soft. 5cm of adjustment.

06K: Stiffness = 3.1. Popular for 735, 705 size blades on flat water, some mild ocean paddling. 5cm of adjustment.

04K: Stiffness = 3.0. Popular 760 and 775 size blades for larger paddlers on flat water. 5cm of adjustment.

03K: Stiffness = 2.8. Popular 775 and 815 size blades for largest sprint paddlers on flat water. 5cm of adjustment.

Note: Braca offers even stiffer shafts that are typically used for sprint paddlers – all models can be ordered
