Details

  • 14 ft. length enhances speed, tracking and stability when covering distance on relatively calm waters
  • Shallow-V hull enhances tracking and offers friendly stability and a lively feel in the water
  • Swede-form construction enhances speed and maneuverability, and it allows bow to punch through waves instead of riding up and over them
  • Unusually light, strong and stiff, the Kestrel 140 comp kayak with rudder features a hybrid construction of fiberglass and a polyaramid (the same material as Kevlar®)
  • Vacuum-bagged composite lamination eliminates excess resin, which improves strength and reduces weight to a scant 43 lbs.
  • Roomy cockpit makes it easy for any paddler to enter kayak
  • Seat creates a natural, comfortable paddling position by tilting the entire seat pan up and away from cockpit floor
  • Use the lever-lock knob (it's similar to a quick-release fork on a bike wheel) to set the seat pan to the desired height
  • Locking mechanism prevents both side-to-side and up-and-down motion
  • To prevent numbness, seat pan features a contoured space for lower vertebrae and is covered with plush, nonabsorbent, very thick padding
  • Seat back moves up and down and back and forth, and it articulates to move with your paddling motion
  • Sliding bar adjusts foot pegs without having to get out and reach inside cockpit
  • Cockpit-deployable rudder enhances tracking in rough weather; toe pedals on top part of foot pegs direct the rudder and steer the kayak
  • Rear hatch provides enough storage for an overnight trip and features an easy-to-use, rubberized hatch cover
  • Bow hatch protects contents from water thanks to a strap-down hard cover
  • Glassed-in bulkheads enhance flotation when hatches are sealed
  • Generous bungee rigging allows you to keep touring accessories with easy reach
  • Toggled carry handles ease transport of the 43 lb. Current Designs Kestrel 140 Comp kayak with rudder to the water
