Features & fittings


Racing seat provides high center of gravity, good position & allows good posture and paddling technique.

Seat options are:

  • (Low back) racing seat with the most popular shape in the market,
  • High-back racing seat for athletes looking for a better grip on the back

Pedal steering

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.

Reaching under the pedal you can find two thumb nuts at the bottom of the fixing frame - they are to secure the pedal position. Don't forget to realease them before adjusting the pedal distance by the spring slider.

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.

However our spring sliding footrest system provides high adjustability, let us know if the boat is for a much shorter or taller paddler (approx. under 170 cm or over 185 cm). Then the complete pedal system will be moved more forward or backward during the construction of the canoe.


    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.

    Bulkheads, compartment & deckfittings

      Rear and front bulkheads are installed as standard.

      A bulkhead (partition) is an upright wall within boat separating watertight compartments so that the capsized boat does not sink. The divided area (compartment) behind the rear bulkhead may be also for cargo storage.

      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.

      Note that above described not standard fittings results in extra weight!

      To let us meet the preferences of a wide range of paddlers we offer multiple constructions to choose from. These constructions are set up in line with the requirements of each segment of the recreational market - from clubs & hobbyists to top-ranking athletes - while providing the most favourable quality and price conditions for that specific group of users.

      More about constructions

      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.

      Tips & more about the available colours

      Think carefully about choosing black and dark colours!

      Such boats warm up more & they become matt very soon. Scratches and limescale are also much more visible on these surfaces.

      Less is more:

      We recommend picking only two, maximum three colours for a coherent boat design.

      More is more:

      (Because of the overlapping gelcoat layers) more colours results in more weight.

      Availability of clear (transparent) surfaces:

      Clear carbon seat & cockpit rim are available in EXTRA & ULTRA constructions.

      Clear carbon hull is available in EXTRA & ULTRA constructions.
      (Bow & stern of the clear carbon boat hulls are black gradient)

      Clear carbon-kevlar hull is available in SUPER construction.
      (Bow & stern of the clear carbon-kevlar boat hulls are colored)

      RAL colors CANNOT be displayed entirely proper on computer screens. The color depends on your monitor and printer. Therefore the exact shade of the product may be different than seen here! Please use these color samples as a reference only! We recommend you to see a physical and official RAL color guide to be sure of the correct color.

      Front & rear bulkheads are installed as standard. Any of them can be left on request.
