You asked, we listened! Check out our awesome "Revolution Seating System"!
This one-of-a-kind rotating axis seat gives unmatched full contact under-leg support. Quickly adjustable with a lever-lock system, you can customize the seats position for your personal paddling style and comfort level.
Contoured plush foam padding cover the bottom and sides of the seat allowing for hours of luxurious paddling comfort. The Revolution Seating System comes paired with our Dimension Adjustable Seat back, a fully articulating and height/angle adjustable back rest. This dynamic combination creates the most comfortable and ergonomically functional seating system ever seen inside a kayaks cockpit.
The Revolution Seating System comes standard in all Kestrel's, Vision's(except the Vision 120SP), and the 2011 edition Whistler.
Stable, maneuverable and user friendly, recreational kayaks are perfect for small lakes and slow rivers where nimble handing is more important than speed and capacity for gear. These kayaks feature large cockpits and ample leg room.
A blend of the aspects of recreational and touring kayaks, Transitional kayaks favor turning and stability on calm waters, but have upturned bows and medium sized cockpits with thigh braces for better handling in rough conditions. Perfect for the developing paddler.
Designed for efficient paddling in a wide variety of conditions, Touring Kayaks are faster and have more capacity than Recreational or Transitional kayaks. This is a big category, and most paddlers will be well-served by a design that falls within it.
North American Size
North American style kayaks are more forgiving than both the Greenland and British styles. Added width and depth improves storage capacity and makes them more comfortable with larger cockpits that are easy to enter and exit. New paddlers will find these kayaks easier to become accustomed to.
British Style kayaks are similar to Greenland style in a more moderate form. They are slighty wider in relation to their length and while they are low profile, they have a higher foredeck. They come with a medium sized cockpit and a higher deck that provides the paddler a bit more leg room and storage capacity. Very well suited for high wind conditions and rough waters.
Greenland Style kayaks have very low profile decks and are quite narrow for their length. They have a sharp hard chine which gives these kayaks high intial stability. Greenland style kayaks are highly capable in rough waters, quite maneuverable, and well suited for special paddling techiniques. The trade-off is that the small cockpit and low, narrow hull may be too snug for larger paddlers and also limits their gear capacity.
