  • Kayak is exceptionally maneuverable and strikes the perfect balance of stability and speed with its long waterline, pronounced keel and moderate rocker
  • Expedition capacity makes it a capable long-range cruiser with front and rear sealed hatches and a convenient center day pod
  • D-shaped hull with moderate chine and upswept bow provides an optimal blend of speed and stability for great performance and a drier ride
  • Thermoformed ABS construction provides high abrasion- and impact-resistance coupled with superior UV protection so your kayak looks like new for many years
  • Lightweight, multiposition Contour II Seat system provides excellent back support, quick adjustment and optimal comfort in a user-friendly design
  • Proprietary Delta indexing system allows the seat to travel forward and back 4 in. for a personalized fit under the thighbraces and to help trim your kayak if needed
  • Low-profile third hatch midship works well for day trips, and 2 main dry storage areas sealed with rigid bulkheads provide ample space for your gear on those longer paddles
  • Proprietary Delta 'Press-Lock' hatch covers create a watertight seal with a specially designed gasket that envelops the rim of the hatch with an easy push
  • Padded integrated thighbraces improve control and overall comfort
  • Integrated rescue system combines bungee cord, perimeter line and paddle recess aft of the cockpit to help make a paddle-float reentry quick and easy
  • Raised bungee lines provide an easy place to secure your paddle blade at the bow and a convenient place to secure your spare paddle at the stern
  • Deck fittings are recessed and hatches flush-mounted for a sleek look and no-snag design
  • Channel-mounted and individually tubed rudder lines ensure a smooth and kink-free operation
  • Ergonomic, retractable dual-density grab handles are easy on your hands
  • Made in Canada
