Show Description

A friendly and stable touring kayak to keep at the cottage for exploring lakes, rivers and calm inlets. The cockpit has adjustable thigh braces and a back rest to fit a wide variety of paddlers and offer comfortable, confident paddling. The drop-down skeg helps keep the boat tracking in a straight line and the hull shape puts the emphasis on ease of use and general low-stress paddling.

  • Shell is durable rotomolded plastic (the plastic can be recycled when your kayak's years of service are finally over).
  • Wide and flat hull shape creates a very stable boat.
  • Foam bulkhead keeps the weight low and improves buoyancy.
  • Sealed hatch uses a hinge and locks easily with the twist of a few knobs.
  • Adjustable knee braces offer a comfortable, stable position.
  • Padded backrest is adjustable forward and back.
  • Foot braces distance is easily adjustable.
  • Skeg can be dropped from the cockpit by releasing the locking mechanism.
  • Rear skid plate can be replaced if it gets worn.
  • Bungee cords on the deck help keep your essentials handy.
  • Moulded carry handle aids carrying.
  • Non-stretch full perimeter lines come in handy when practicing wet-exit and re-entry.
  • Leftover plastic from production is turned into cradles used for shipping.
