Bending Branches

Bending Branches Logo

From the start, thinking of better ways to propel paddlers. 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 then, paddles from this small, privately held company in Wisconsin have propelled more than a million paddlers to places and experiences that are something to write home about. And this spirit of pushing forward continues to drive Bending Branches today.

Bending Branches are committed to bringing new features to the water that enhance your paddling experience.

Bending Branches Innovation Bending Branches revolutionized the paddle industry by introducing composite tip canoe paddles. We have been designing and building the finest paddles ever since, and are always looking for new ways to make paddles better. Their unique designs, creative engineering, and proprietary processes create the ultimate performance paddles featuring strength, stiffness and light weight. They're committed to bringing new features to the water that enhance the paddling experience.

The tip of every Bending Branches wood paddle is protected with Rockgard. This proprietary technology - derived from the same material as inline skate wheels - maintains the integrity of the paddle, seals against moisture and protects the most vulnerable areas - the tips and edges. Paddles protected with Rockgard last six times as long as those without protection.
