    - maintaining an efficient racing line
  • 3 Efficient design
    - provides more space under the pole

 

Flat position

  • 4 Ergonomic paddle angle (closer to the kayak)
  • 5 "A-shape" allows a rapid pop up and glide through waves
  • 6 Widest point at the seat to optimize the center of gravity
    - improving agility in river currents
    - hull flow optimized "teardrop shape"
    - more volume under the waterline (superior buoyancy & boat control)
