Description

Bending Branches Catalyst 11

The The Bending Branches Catalyst 11 is their new sustainable bent shaft canoe paddle. Handcrafted from a combination of basswood, roasted basswood, red alder, and maple remnants from our first-quality paddles, Bending Branches is giving new life to what might have gone to waste. Not only is this paddle sparking change in the company as they make sustainable practices a priority, they hope the Catalyst inspires change in the paddling community. $5 from every paddle purchased will be donated to American Rivers non-profit. 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 classic palm grip, this lightweight paddle will stand up to hours of paddling. The Catalyst exceeds BB’s 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.
