  • Shallow-V hull enhances tracking and offers friendly stability and a lively feel in the water
  • Swede-form construction enhances speed and maneuverability, with the bow punching through waves instead of riding up and over them
  • Rotomolded polyethylene construction offers performance, responsiveness and rugged durability
  • Open cockpit is very easy to get into and so roomy that you'll enjoy paddling all day long without feeling confined
  • Cockpit features enough space to put extra gear between your legs, and sliding foot pegs lock-in to adjust the fit for different paddlers
  • Create a natural, comfortable paddling position by tilting the seat up and away from cockpit floor
  • Use the lever-lock knob—it's similar to a quick-release fork on a bike wheel—to adjust the seat; locking mechanism prevents side-to-side and up-and-down motion
  • To prevent numbness, seat features a countoured space for lower vertebrae and is covered with very thick, plush, nonabsorbent padding
  • Seat back moves up and down and back and forth, and it articulates to move with your paddling motion
  • Rear hatch provides water-resistant storage for bulky gear and features an easy-to-use, rubberized hatch cover with 3 lever locks
  • Small front hatch features a rubberized cover and enough room for day-trip accessories
  • Closed-cell foam bulkheads enhance flotation when hatches are sealed and prevent contents of rear hatch from shifting
  • Bungee rigging lets you keep touring accessories with easy reach
  • Paddle keeper frees up hands when needed
  • Toggled carry handles ease transport of the 54 lb. Current Designs Solara 100 kayak to the water

Made in USA.
