Our women's kayak feels so good you never want to get out of it. Its compact cockpit makes you feel secure and firmly in control. And its balance of maneuverability and reduced drag will help you keep up with the guys. Or just plain leave them behind. Available in fiberglass or carbon. Polymer and rudder composite models also available.
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.
Our retractable skeg allows a paddler to adjust the trim of the kayak. This can be advantageous in high wind conditions, when dropping the skeg even a few inches. A skeg can help reduce fatigue and make a significant difference in your boat's tracking ability.
Necky skegs incorporate "Necky Wire," a highly durable, kink-resistant wire common to the medical industry. It is unaffected by salt water and does not stiffen or kink over time. In testing, we've never experienced a failure, even when the skeg was repeatedly slammed against logs or hard rocks jammed inside the skeg box.
