Introducing the Elias, an agile, playful and responsive touring kayak. The Elias takes its design cues from Necky’s popular women’s specific Eliza kayak, with a slightly longer and larger hull designed to appeal to a broad variety of paddlers. At fifteen and a half feet, the Elias is extremely efficient for a kayak its size. Its relatively modest waterline translates into less effort for the paddler at normal cruising speeds, making the Elias significantly more efficient for everyday touring than other kayaks in its class. Also available in a polymer model, the Elias is ideal for day touring and weekend excursions.
Made of durable molded foam, this seat is designed specifically to reduce pressure on your sciatic nerve. By actually improving flow around the gluteus maximus, it helps prevent your feet and legs from falling asleep when you're paddling longer distances. For added comfort, the seat does not retain water. It also features an integral tether that attaches to the seat of the boat, keeping it in place when car-topping. The supportive back band provides ample lumbar support, movement and comfort for most body types. Many of our touring kayaks feature this seat.
Our composite thigh brace system combines support with a moderately aggressive fit and comfort. The composite lay up allows us to achieve the best bracing system without adding a lot of weight.
For our Eliza and Elias composite kayaks and Chatham series, we choose to use the popular Valley® hatches. These hatches are the first choice for extreme expedition use. They are virtually waterproof, tough and easy to access.
