Combining the best of both worlds.

Hand-crafted in Osceola, WI USA

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 Plus comes with a versatile telescoping ferrule allowing for infinite feathering angles. If you have multiple boats or an adjustable seat (or if you can’t keep your Navigator out of other paddlers’ hands), the telescoping ferrule makes changing the paddle's length a breeze.
