Van Dusen Twisted Tear-Drop Wing Paddle

Braca XI Van Dusen ’92 is the newest addition to the BRACA-SPORT paddle line. It was originally designed by Ted Van Dusen, in 1992, after three years of development and testing.   The Braca XI blade has a special twisted tear-drop shape which facilitates a powerful catch and clean exit. Its movement through the water is unique. The Braca XI Van Dusen does require a more precise entry at the catch than other paddles, but once dialed in it provides top performance – efficient power at varied cadences.

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