  • The Elias takes its design cues from Necky’s popular Eliza kayak, with a slightly longer and larger hull designed to appeal to a broad variety of paddlers
  • Hull shape is optimized for easy paddling and nearly effortless glide, and it provides stability for maneuvering through wind and waves
  • Performance-fit cockpit enables paddlers to grip the boat for edging and lean turning while still maintaining an easy feel for the more casual paddler
  • Boat is crafted from durable superlinear polyethylene for long-lasting service, easy care and reliable performance
  • Foot-pedal-controlled rudder system with cockpit deployment controls helps with steering and tracking in rough and windy water
  • Adjustable foam seat is designed specifically to reduce pressure on your sciatic nerve, helping prevent your legs and feet from falling asleep during long paddles
  • Fully bulkheaded bow and stern hatches with easy-to-use Cross Lock hatch covers provide generous dry cargo storage for day and overnight trips
  • Bungee deck rigging secures extra gear on deck for easy access
  • Carry toggles at bow and stern allow easy portaging to and from the water; boat features perimeter lines for safety and easier re-entry
  • The Necky Elias Kayak with Rudder weighs 47 lbs.

Made in USA.
