Tear-Drop Wing Paddle

Braca IV is the original world’s first ‘tear-drop’ design and has been one of BRAČA-SPORT® most popular paddles for all types of paddling: used in Olympic Sprints, World Marathon Championships, and Surfski events. The paddle is designed to facilitate application of power in the beginning (catch) and in the middle of the stroke, enabling capabilities to obtain the “ultimate” forward stroke. The IV is a more “forgiving” shape than the XI, VI or VII meaning easier at the catch.  The Braca I,  Braca IV, and Braca Children are all scaled versions of the same paddle design.

braca kevlar tips

Brača IV is available with Marathon blade construction allowing use of carbon wing paddle in tougher conditions for the paddle integrity. This is a result of advanced technology, a proprietary blend of carbon and composite  materials and was designed with the marathon and adventure paddlers in mind. The edge of the wing blade is reinforced with a kevlar layer that makes it highly impact resistant in extreme down river conditions.

Brača IV 60 is designed for paddlers who prefer a softer blade and shaft.
