The Catalyst is Bending Branches new sustainable canoe paddle. Handcrafted from a combination of basswood, roasted basswood, red alder, and maple remnants from their first-quality paddles, it give a new life to what might have gone to waste.  The construction of the wood remnants means each blade layout is slightly unique.

At 24 oz., the Catalyst is day trip ready. Designed for comfort with an ovalized shaft and a freestyle palm grip, this lightweight paddle will stand up to hours of paddling. The Catalyst exceeds our strength testing standards with full Rockgard® coverage and a 4 oz. fiberglass wrap. Ideal for flatwater, it's all smooth paddling from here with the Catalyst. 

A freestyle grip or palm grip, is very comfortable on your hands, and good for long days of flatwater paddling.

Bending Branches' Rockgard protection is a proprietary technology - derived from the same material as inline skate wheels - that maintains the integrity of the paddle, seals against moisture and protects the most vulnerable areas - the tips and edges. It is this unmatched shock-absorption that Rockgard provides which helps Bending Branches wood paddles last six times longer than those without protection. 

Hand-crafted in Osceola, Wisconsin.
