Product Details

The Catalyst is the sustainable canoe paddle, made by hand-laying first quality wood scraps, dedicated to the reuse of excess materials. Handcrafted from a combination of basswood, roasted basswood, red alder, and maple remnants from Bending Branches' first-quality paddles, they're giving new life to what might have gone to waste. $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 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.

Hand-crafted in Osceola, Wisconsin. The Catalyst 11 is available in lengths of 48 inches to 56 inches (in 2-inch increments).
