Rockgard- Make sure you're protected.

Bending Branches Rockgard® protection is a proprietary technology that derived from the inline skate wheel which combines toughness and durability.
There are paddles that have not protection along the blade edge and those are likely going to have mild to severe splitting at the blade tip within a year or two.
The next level of protection you see on many paddles is a urethane coating on the blade tip. While this material is tough, it has a tendency to chip and is very rigid.
Our Rockgard material gives you the toughness you need, but also adds the important element of elasticity, resulting in a more impact resistant protection.
The amount of Rockgard protection found on each paddle can differ due to the intended use or purpose of each paddle.
Check out our Rockgard page for more detailed information.
