Brača XI Van Dusen ’92 is the newest addition to the Brača-Sport paddle line. It was originally designed by Ted Van Dusen in 1992 after three years of development and testing. Due to the high demand, Brača-Sport added this special shaped blade to the product line by purchasing a licence from Ted in 2014.
The blade has a special twisted tear-drop shape which facilitates a powerful catch and clean exit. It’s movement through the water is different from other Brača-Sport blades, therefore it requires a slightly different paddling technique.
The Brača XI Van Dusen ’92 is also available with Marathon blade construction. This is a result of advanced technology, a proprietary blend of composite materials and was designed with the marathon and adventure paddler in mind. The edge of the blade is reinforced with a kevlar layer that makes it highly impact resistant in marathon and down river racing.
You can also choose the stiffness of the shaft. We recommend a stiffer shaft for bigger blades but any combination is possible.
As used by current world open mens single ski champion Loccy Tame and 2015 Molokai to Oahu open mens winner Cory Hill.
