Shaft Construction

  • BRAČA-SPORT® Oar Sleeves
BRAČA-SPORT® technology guaranties the weigh for specific set of sculls and sweep oars, with a variance of no more than ± 5 g (0.005 kg, 0.011 lb, 0.1764 oz).
  • BRAČA-SPORT® Ultra Light
BRAČA-SPORT® Ultra Light (Yellow band) is our most advanced and sophisticated design and represents the highest level of technology offered by BRAČA-SPORT. They have the highest level of performance characteristics. This is achieved by using our proprietary multi-layer and multi-characteristic lay-up methods of our own proprietary 100% pure high modulus carbon (HMC) fabrics.
  • BRAČA-SPORT® Ultra Light Nano
BRAČA-SPORT® Ultra Light Nano is our small diameter shaft, which features an exclusive design and all the high performance characteristics of the Ultra Light shaft. The Nano shafts are hand made with the highest grade of high modulus carbon. We use our lightest prepreg carbon fabrics - Unipreg®, specifcally manufactured for rowing oars. The Ultra Light Nano is the only small diameter shaft with a wide stiffness range. They are designed for highly competitive and elite rowers of all sizes.
  • BRAČA-SPORT® Standard
BRAČA-SPORT® Standard (Red band) is an advanced design and a unique material combination that has the highest possible impact resistance and durability. They are lower in carbon content and 20% heavier than the Ultra Light type. This is a good choice for club or scholastic programs where durability and performance are a key factor.
  • BRAČA-SPORT® Recreational
BRAČA-SPORT® Recreational (Green band) is a unique design that reduces carbon content to 40% and continues to provide excellent performance characteristics. They maintain high impact resistance and weigh only 11% more that the Standard type. This is a cost effective solution for the casual and recreational rower.
