World Class Paddles. Made in America.
In 1982, whitewater and touring canoeist Dale Kicker and flat-water racer Ron Hultman teamed up to create the first composite tipped canoe paddle. This unique innovation revolutionized the paddle industry and gave birth to Bending Branches. Since that birth, paddles from this Wisconsin company have propelled people to the places and experiences that people dream of. This spirit of adventure continues to drive Bending Branches to enhance your paddling experience.

The ultimate wilderness canoe paddle
The Rockgard—all along the blade’s edges plus 6 inches up the shaft—combined with a 4-ounce fiberglass wrap on the blade means there’s no need to baby this paddle.
This grip is easy on your hands and gives you the kind of control you need to maneuver your canoe in all conditions.
The red alder, basswood and roasted basswoods we use make this paddle pretty enough to hang on your wall when you’re not using it in the wilderness.
