The Bending Branches Navigator wood kayak paddle dares to combine high-tech materials with the natural beauty of red alder and roasted basswood. The Navigator’s shaft is made of aviation-grade T-700 carbon, and its blades are hand-crafted of beautiful hardwoods. For added durability, the blades are wrapped in fiberglass and protected with a Rockgard® edge protection around the blade.
As amazing to look at as it is to use, the Navigator weighs just 28 oz. You might just agree that this is a lasting marriage of old-school wood with state-of-the-art paddle technology. The Navigator comes with a snug-fitting 3 hole snap-button ferrule that allows for adjustable feather angles of 0° and 60°, left or right hand control. The Navigator is available in sizes ranging from 210cm to 240cm, in 10cm increments.
