With a U-shaped & thinned-down bow section the hull works at its best when being driven hard. Inverted bow maximize the length of the waterline and hence the hull speed, reduce the size of the bow wave and has a better overall hydrodynamic drag.
It has solid longitudinal stability for rapid acceleration and minimum pitching movements. The kayak stays level in the water so is able to pick up maximum speed quickly, cleanly and efficiently.
Sharp cut away deck allows for close paddle entries and catches in both bow and stern positions.
All kayaks are equipped with low back racing seat with traditional design as standard - the most popular seat shape in the market.
All racing seat is fixed to the same platform rails installed in the kayak so they are convertible with each other.
Kayaks are equipped with simple yet reliable footrests with easy-to-adjust spring sliding system. The fixing frame & fittings of the footrest are positioned behind the footplate, so the full width of the boat is available for your feet. This provides comfort & full use of the tiller bar for effective steering. It is also perfect for club use to regularly adjust the footrest distance.
The footplate is covered with EVA traction pad for non-slip and increased comfort, and equipped with adjustable foot strap.
Narrow footrest with fixed angle footplate is equipped as standard but full footrest with adjustable angle footplate is available for maximum leg drive & customisation.
The kayak is equipped with a high performance plastic race rudder as standard. It provivides excellent tracking with minimum drag and turbulance. These unbalanced & thin rudders have a low blade surface and 6 mm rudder shaft.
Choosing a durable stainless rudder may be a good option for marathon paddlers or for summer trainings in still water. It is less prone to impact damages during portages or caused by woody debris, not to mention that it also minimises the unpleasant weed pick-up.
NO bulkheads are installed in flat water racing kayaks as standard. However rear, front or both bulkheads can be installed on request if the boat will be used by paddlers under the age of 14-15, beginners or unstable paddlers.
Constructions differ in the materials and technologies used during the manufacturing process. These determine the stiffness and the interior appearance of the boat. In practice, an upper construction results a stiffer & more eye-catching boat.
Besides, the standard and available fittings may be also different in some constructions. These are listed at the "Fittings" section of this article.
All boats are made to order. You can choose your preferred colour(s) of the hull, the deck areas, the trim (seam between deck & hull), the cockpit rims (coamings) and the seats.
These deck designs are available in all constructions:
