Spectrum Small K1

The small version of the classic Spectrum but designed for smaller paddlers.

Designed by Jan Horak from Spectrum, this is a very fast kayak suitable for serious sprint and marathon paddlers.

The transom stern is the secret to this kayak’s ability to be both fast and easy to paddle.

The transom increases the buoyancy in the back half of the kayak which maintains the correct trim at full speed allowing the kayak to be efficient at all speeds and gain a higher maximum speed.

The kayak can be more stable without affecting the optimum length to width ratio.

Length 5.2 Metres Width36 cm Cockpit ,K1  

 A beautiful kayak to paddle. 

Fast on the sprint. Turns well. Sits nice on the wash.

Perfect for juniors, woman and light men. 

This is the kayak Steve made for himself when the radiation treatment left him at 65Kg, 

You need to be slim in the hips to fit in it. 82 cm waist size would be about the maximum.

Did we mention it is fast and a pleasure to paddle.

Paddler weight range .50 to 75 Kg.
