Destined to cover distance on both familiar and distant shores, the Current Designs Solstice GT kayak with rudder provides an exquisite experience in the water.

  • Incredibly lightweight, strong and stiff, the Solstice GT kayak with rudder features a superbly crafted fiberglass hull
  • Vacuum-bagged fiberglass layup eliminates excess resin, which improves strength and reduces weight to 54 lbs.
  • Fish-form construction enhances overall flotation and efficiency in the surf zone
  • Shallow-V hull enhances tracking and offers friendly stability and a lively feel in the water; low decks minimize wind resistance
  • Keyhole-shape cockpit provides a responsive fit, yet it's still easy to get into
  • Built-in thighbraces on the underside of the rim maximize control when edging and rolling
  • Seat back with foam back pad creates cushy comfort during long hours on the water
  • Cockpit-deployable rudder enhances tracking in rough weather; use the footbraces to direct the rudder and steer the kayak
  • Pivoting footbraces work like a gas pedal and offer easy, intuitive control of the rudder
  • Footbraces are adjustable from kayak interior even while on water
  • Internal rudder cable routing creates a smooth look to kayak
  • Hatches provide ample storage for an extended trip and feature easy-to-use compression hatch covers
  • Compression hatch covers sit flush with the deck and feature a rubber gasket that creates a watertight seal when tightened with cam straps
  • Hatch covers also increase rigidity of deck, a definite plus during rescues or when paddling in rough water
  • Bow, stern and center bungee deck rigging securely store extra gear on top
  • Toggled carry handles ease transport of the 54 lb. Current Designs Solstice GT kayak with rudder to the water

Made in USA.

Current Designs Solstice GT Kayak with Rudderis rated4.0out of5by1.
Rated4out of5byfromGreat boatAfter a lot of research it was between this boat and the Looksha Elite. The Solstice felt a bit more stable and they are easier to find. It didn't hurt that there was a sale for $470.00 off retail for the Solstice.
