Well equipped, light sea kayak

The Viking Icon is a well-equipped, light and nimble British style sea kayak with Scandinavian features. These features represent: gently sloping V-hull, light paddling performance, increased stability, bigger volume for expedition use and excellent production quality.

The Viking Icon is made for small to medium size paddlers, who prefer paddling with a great skeg kayak and love to control the kayak with their body. For those who want to sit comfortable in a well designed cockpit and enjoy the feeling of a well fitted sea kayak in various conditions.

The Viking Icon responds excellently to leant turns and tracks great in high seas.

Optimal for small to mid sized paddlers

In spite of being a smaller size kayak the Viking Icon achieves a speed comparable to bigger sea kayaks and you can enjoy paddling among groups. The Viking Icon is also available with a Kajak-Sport Activ rudder. The control and maneuverability of the kayak is extremely easy with the Activ rudder. The care free and efficient rudder spares the strength of the paddler remarkably which is evident when conditions get worse.

Available in three lay-up options

Traditional lay up (TR) uses polyester/diolen and fiber glass.

Extra Rigid (XR) is made of 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.
