Valley Etain 17.5

From: £3,750.00

Demo Boat available. These boats are built to order based on your specification. If we have stock these will be shown on our ‘Kayak Showroom’ page.  

This kayak was designed intentionally with a very neutral hull-form i.e. Not aggressively swede-form (associated with racing kayaks) or fish-form (associated with many older sea kayak designs), this gives the kayak predictable handling and a balanced feel, irrespective of the conditions being paddled. Also having the widest point, at the paddlers hips, you’ll also notice a real sense of connection between what you do and how the kayak reacts, making it an efficient but also rewarding kayak to paddle.

Other design features include a hull with a shallow to moderately V keel for good initial stability, a long waterline length to promote forward speed and just enough rocker to give a good balance between tracking and maneuverability,
