Fast, maneuverable and great in rough waters
The Braveheart sea kayak is fast and maneuverable. Great for playing in rough water yet carving turns are comfortable; the Braveheart has storage space for longer trips. If you are a paddler aiming to improve your skills and like to face challenging conditions, the Braveheart with its stability and amazing fast turning will be the kayak of your dreams.
20 years of experience in kayak building and knowledge of the newest composite technology’s enabled the Skim design team to come up with a design that is unmatched at this stage. The design of the Braveheart is done with the help of 3D design tools, our plugs are made using a 3D milling machine, and the finishing is done by experienced craftsman. The deck design of the Braveheart is done with rigidness in mind; kayak designers often neglect deck design. The shape of the deck enables us to construct the deck lighter and stiffer, bringing the center of gravity of the kayak down which enhances the Bravehearts stability. The result of our approach is a very stable, fast turning, good volume yet fast and efficient kayak, that is seaworthy and top in rough water handling. The Braveheart is standard equipped with the Kajak-Sport skeg system.
