Playful and nimble

Dex MkII is a playful and nimble kayak for day and weekend trips where high seas and surfs are more than welcome. A boat for those who appreciate contact in leans, edges and manoeuvres. Low volume. Low profile. Tight cockpit. Its responsiveness in combination with good tracking also makes a suitable mid/long-range kayak for smaller paddlers.

Dex MkII is identical to the original Dex but with a slightly higher front deck for more leg and foot space. The cockpit rim has more angle for easier entry and exiting of the kayak. A day hatch has been added in front of the cockpit rim as well for storage of small items like camera’s, telephone’s, snacks etc. Dex MkII is like all our kayaks standard equipped with the Kajak-Sport skeg system.

The Dex MkII is prepared for use with a rudder, yet the rudder is an option.

Optimal for smaller paddlers

Optimal Dex MkII paddler size is 50-80 kg.

Available in three lay-up options

Traditional lay up (TR) Polyester/Diolen and fiber glass,

Extra Rigid (XR) Vinylester/carbon/Kevlar/glass fiber and diolen

Carbon light (CL) hull of carbon fiber sandwich with diolen resin with a deck constructed in fiberglass and vinylester.

Traditional lay-up is like the classic Skim yet with more reinforcement and therefore more rigid. Extra rigid is as expected even more rigid and nearly bomb proof. 
Carbon light has the same rigidness as the XR, but is by far the most lightweight lay up of the three.

Handmade in Finland.
