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.
Adjustable Shaft System
All Brača XI Van Dusen ’92 paddles are available with a fixed shaft or a Metal Adjustable Shaft System. This allows elegant adjustment of overall paddle length (within 5cm range) and blade angle from 0° to 80° right or left in 5° increments. The system also allows you to disassemble the paddle into two parts for easy transportation. IMPORTANT! Always clean your adjustable shaft regularly! When used in saltwater conditions, clean with freshwater after each use, otherwise disassemble and clean every three days. Store your adjustable paddle disassembled if not used for more than two weeks!
Adjustable shaft system is NOT included in price of the paddle. See the product link Adjustable Shaft System
