»Manta« canoes are designed and distributed in Austria, by founder and multiple world championship medallist in Canoe Slalom, Ed Wolffhardt
»Manta« is the only canoe slalom company with the patented »Ergonomic Carving Radius«.
The new, innovative shape exhibits a »teardrop shape« (flow optimized) and allows more draft on the edge.
This harnesses the power of the water because it supports a better acceleration in and out of up-streams (aka eddy turns).
To intensify this idea, we put the widest part of the kayak to the center of gravity, right before the seat.
All kayaks are modeled in CAD and CNC milled to ensure hydrodynamic and symmetric surfaces to get the best possible performance of the boats.
The kayaks are constructed by CS Canoe, Italy.
