Racing seat provides high center of gravity, good position & allows good posture and paddling technique.
Seat options are:
Foot pedal is for precise & responsive steering, even during intensive leg driving. With pedal steering, you can apply steering at any point of the paddle stroke cycle without losing momentum. The pedal steering also has our easy-to-adjust spring sliding system, perfect for club use to regularly adjust the pedal distance.
In non-STANDARD constructions, the pedal is covered with EVA traction pad for non-slip and increased comfort & equipped with adjustable foot strap to add more power to paddle strokes through leg drive.
The canoe is equipped with a responsive plastic understern rudder as standard. It provivides excellent tracking and easy steering but is exposed to imact damages of both the rudder blade and the boat hull.
However choosing the durable stainless "marathon" rudder will slightly decrease the response of steering, it minimise weed pick-up that is often a must for summer paddling in still water.
Rear and front bulkheads are installed as standard.
A small (d: 10 cm) hatch is placed in the rear bulkhead, mainly to let the rear compartment to dry when not in use and to ventilate the stored boat. Through this, smaller objects (eg. key and water bottle) can be placed in the rear compartment.
Some cargo can be loaded to the rear compartment through a somewhat bigger hatch on the rear bulkhead. The bulkhead size and shape of this particular model let us to install a hatch there with a diameter up to 15 cm.
A rear compartment divider can be installed 40 cm behind the rear bulkhead to prevent the cargo slipping to the stern.
Bungee cord or a bungee net can be installed on the rear deck - usually right behind the cockpit.
Carry handles can be installed to help moving canoe to and from the water.
Constructions differ in the materials and technologies used during the manufacturing process. These determine the stiffness, the weight and the interior appearance of the boat. In practice, an upper construction results a stiffer, more lightweight & spectacular boat, but it requires more caution during use
Besides, the standard and available fittings may be also different in some constructions. These are listed at the "Fittings" section of this article.
