Entry for Special Jury Prize NATSEQ by Kayak Innovations

« Summer 2018 … a beautiful day for paddling sometime in August. A very relaxed tour on a nice river in the east of France with lots of time to enjoy paddling and talking, that’s how it all started.« 

The idea of a modular kayak that can be stored in a space-saving way, transported in the boot and assembled in a few seconds is not new. And it is good. In fact, it’s so good that it’s worth thinking about how to improve such a boat. So on the evening of that fantastic day of paddling, we just talked shop for a bit… and suddenly we had an idea, a challenge that was never to leave us! The main driving force behind the idea were questions that arose from the experiences of dealers and active paddlers:

Is it possible to design a modular kayak in such a way that there are no large gaps between the segments, both on the water and on land?
Is it possible to design a modular kayak in such a way that it also appeals to ambitious touring paddlers?
Is it possible to design a modular kayak in such a way that it does not differ in manoeuvrability, manoeuvrability and speed from a high-quality one-piece touring boat?
Is it possible to design a modular kayak in such a way that it combines and develops many good ideas?
Is it possible to design a modular kayak in such a way that it can not only be assembled quickly, but can also be disassembled just as easily? 
And above all: Is it possible to develop and produce an innovative modular kayak at an acceptable price in Europe?

In our search for answers to our questions, we met a lot of great people and they were all enthusiastic about the idea. So we won over a developer in Austria who specialises in rotomoulding and who directly catapulted our project two levels up. Our team and network includes ambitious dealers and active paddlers who have helped us time and again to put the finishing touches on the boat. This includes a visit to paddling legend Mike Neckar, whose « Necky » kayaks still enjoy cult status today!

Here’s the result:

Entry for Canoe – Umiak 390 by Nautiraid

The Umiak 390 is a new Pack Boat canoe of 13ft length (390 cm).

Like the original Adirondack Pack Boat canoe of the XIXe century, it intends to be light (16 kg), to be paddled solo with a single blade, a dream to portage and can be loaded with a lot of gear. Being a skin on frame boat means that it has a lot more speed and dynamics than an inflatable.

The first bonus of the Umiak 390 is the folding nature of the craft : 5 aluminum tubes, 6 crossribs, two inflatable topsides, in fifteen minutes you have assembled your canoe which folds into a backpack.

Second bonus is that it can be equipped with two kayak seats in case a friend wants to go for a ride. So with one boat you have an OC1 and a small tandem for day outings.

Akaroa Expedition Plus

The Akaroa follows the idea of ​​Skagerrak and Adria, but here we are breaking a little more with our high-speed tradition and with it we have actually « not created the fastest 525 that Lettmann has ever designed, » said Jochen Lettmann after the first test drive of the finished prototypes.

But that doesn’t bother us, we’re even proud of it. Because the Akaroa has other strengths: It is the Lettmann sea kayak with the best straight-line stability and the most guidance while at the same time being very agile. And that was the most important thing to us when developing the kayak. The Akaroa gets along for a particularly long time without a skeg or rudder in wind and waves, whether from the front or the back, as well as when driving in the (tidal) current. To achieve that, we stole volume from him, volume in the lower ship. In the same way, we had to give him more S-beats and move his cockpit a little further back. All of this robs it of some speed, but the result is convincing across the board – and of course the Akaroa is still not really slow. No one will have trouble keeping up with a group of paddlers on a tour, the cruising speed is still high for a kayak in its class.

The even safer and slightly wider underwater hull (compared to Biskaya and Skinner) also makes the Akaroa super stable at the beginning. But that wasn’t the only reason why we opted for an under-ship that is almost 58 centimeters wide. Because in addition to the initial and final stability, we wanted to increase one thing above all else: the fun factor. In combination with the relatively short waterline, the Akaroa is a real surf machine, it is agile and, thanks to the very U-shaped lower hull, can be easily controlled, changing direction in the wave has never been so easy. The raised bow of the Akaroa ensures a very dry run. Even during long surfs, the bow dips very late and the kayak remains controllable for longer.

Of course, the Akaroa is equipped with our integrated steering skeg. There are two different pedal systems to choose from. In addition to our ergo control bracket, we also offer a classic side footrest (TipToes) that can be adjusted from the seat. The Akaroa comes as standard with a large oval lid at the rear and a 240 mm round hatch at the front. Customization is possible with a dayhatch in front of the cockpit and a 150 mm hatch behind the seat and a third bulkhead.

Product Spotlight: P&H Volan

May 18th, 2020 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “Product Spotlight: P&H Volan”

The developmental artery of the Volan has been a long one, and we thank the members of our global system of expert marketers and P& H Pro Paddlers who bundled magnanimous amounts of energy and warmth, and participated us for the journey…

We initially announced the notions, a complementary pairing of polyethylene and composite, lightweight ocean kayaks focused on day and weekend junkets, at PADDLEexpo in 2018. Whilst many have found their perfect, two-boat fleet in a combination of an Aries or Delphin, and a Cetus or Scorpio, we likewise was recognized that not all had the necessary funds or storage gap for two crafts and that this new range too had the potential to fulfil the needs of those paddlers.

We soon reached a fork in the developmental road, though; one itinerary led to a shorter design with a relatively straight keel, whilst the other’s destination was a 16 ’ sea kayak with pronounced rocker. We decided to explore both, with the onetime become the polyethylene Virgo , and the latter becoming the composite Volan.

Product Spotlight: P&H Volan

The Volan is 16 ’ in period with a pronounced rocker profile and slight chines, which in combination, accept the boat to swing around nimbly in the surf, and keep the weight low-toned, reducing the effort required to move the craft around both on and off the water.

Our 50+ years of cross-discipline design experience shine through once again, including the incorporation of the innovative billow deflectors seen in recent Pyranha models, avoiding scatter outwards, away from the paddler when powering through chopper, and the establishment of dynamic prow lift without unwarranted loudnes or rocker.

The Volan’s compounding of a planing, mid-section hull and finely accommodated chines is reinforced by decades of experience with the performance characteristics of this type of hull in the Pyranha range of whitewater kayaks, ensuring the edges are adjusted to engage when desired without hinder the paddler otherwise. The hull influence and aspects promote planing conduct and manoeuvrability at high speed on a motion hitherto retain tracking and effectiveness at the lower rapidities associated with regular paddling.

In that vein, the Volan forgoes the school of thought which says a sea kayak is necessary to unstable when motionless to perform in motion, and is exceptionally stable when flat, yet comes alive at the influence of your paddle strokes or the participation of an edge.

The assets of the Volan’s hull are amplified by our advanced construction offerings; Lightweight Kevlar/ Carbon Infusion offers incredible, industry-leading weight saving, hull stiffness, and stability, for higher achievement, lower struggle, and increased longevity.

Product Spotlight: P&H Volan

In summary, the Volan’s features include 😛 TAGEND

The renowned ease of our Connect outfitting All the predictably smooth the special features of the Cetus in a lighter, more compact format for shorter journeyings and easier portaging, ferry, and storage. Force from the Aries, such as a wave-piercing bow, to enhance the play potential of the accept, pact designing at relatively low shaking value. A planing, mid-section hull with insidious chines, which can carve on a beckon face and manoeuvred expending traditional procedures during normal toddle. A rocker chart tailored to partner with the intent of the hull motif, whilst working with the submit tide deflectors to produce a baked ride in a wide variety of water necessities. Remarkable stability, making a great platform for all abilities to take in the spates, whether that’s with your eyes or a camera.
