The Catalyst is our new sustainable canoe paddle. Handcrafted from a combination of basswood, roasted basswood, red alder, and maple remnants from our first-quality paddles, we're giving new life to what might have gone to waste. Not only is this paddle sparking change in our company as we make sustainable practices a priority, we hope the Catalyst sparks change in your own 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 freestyle 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 Straight is available in lengths of 52 inches to 60 inches (in 2-inch increments).
Due to the varied density of wood, all canoe paddles could have a +/– 10% variance in weight.
Paddle weight is based on 54 inch measurements for straight shafts and 50 inch measurements for bent shafts.
