Show Description

All the features of a touring kayak, in a scaled down package. A shorter vessel, this boat easily slides on and off roof racks for a spontaneous day on small lakes or gentle rivers, yet still has enough space to bring a generous amount of cargo for an overnight. It offers a reassuring stability for new paddlers, but experts will appreciate its excellent edging and carving. A contoured seat with ample padding and an adjustable backrest are designed to help your cruising feel relaxed and luxurious.

  • Single-layer roto-moulded plastic. Venture uses recycled and reclaimed plastic wherever possible.
  • Stable hull gives confidence and security.
  • Long water line, for speed and tracking.
  • Ergonomic, fully-adjustable cockpit for all-day comfort.
  • Contoured, padded seat pan sized to reduce pressure points and offer leg support.
  • Adjustable seat trim to match the boat's performance to paddler.
  • Adjustable thigh grips and adjustable ratchet backrest.
  • Watertight hatches made of supple UV-stable rubber for a great seal.
  • Foam bulkheads are light and offer added buoyancy.
  • Foil skeg helps to track in a straight line.
  • Elastic lines across the deck stow gear such as split paddles.
  • Pre-stretched lines round the deck to tie gear on and allow others to hold onto your kayak.
