Perfect for long range kayaking

Distance is a long-range kayak for those who aren’t discouraged by a little blizzard. The boat’s length and profile give it a sufficient loading capacity in combination with seaworthiness and reliable tracking in hard wind and rough seas. Always with a great paddling experience and good speed. The hull’s shape gives this long kayak exceptional maneuverability. And the keyhole ensures essential contact between paddler and boat and makes exits and entries in winter outfit easy.

The kayak has three watertight compartments and is standard equipped with Kajak-Sport skeg system.

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.
