With the fibreglass cockpit rim a cheaper nylon spray deck can be used.
The kayak is fitted with the High performance glass seat, unless otherwise requested, and offers extra leg room due to a raised areaeither side of the cockpit. The seat can be set higher for a smaller paddler and the raised area in the front deck can be padded if needed. The kayak has a low rear deck for easy rolling, a keyhole cockpit that gives excellent grip, control and allows quick exit if need be. The the foam pillar immediately behind the seat provides additional back support and, together with the closely positioned bulkhead, allows the kayak to be emptied by lifting only the bow, no x-rescue is necessary.
