Rocker The degree of curvature in the hull from bow to stern defines the rocker. More rocker improves the ability to maneuver the kayak, especially in rough water. A kayak with little or no rocker will track very well and travel efficiently, but may be more difficult to maneuver. We carefully control rocker to deliver the right combination of maneuverability, speed, and seaworthiness appropriate for each kayaks intended use. Form Swede Form: Widest behind the cockpit, Swede form has a cleaner, longer, and more slender entry, giving efficient touring speeds and maneuverability. In shorter...

Vacuum bagging the deck of a kayak. Vacuum-bagged composite lamination is the technology we chose over twenty years ago for its superior properties. Originally developed by the aerospace industry to manufacture ultra-light, strong components, we refined that same process to deliver the lightest, strongest, and most durable kayaks available. Today we are the recognized industry leader in this field. Vacuum-bagged composite lamination uses vacuum to eliminate any excess resin, which improves strength and decreases weight. We also utilize 3-D non-woven core materials in specific places to...
