The Aries takes the dramatically different design features and benefits from the Delphin and refines them for composite material systems and for the lower impact environment where composite kayaks excel. Hard chines and a pronounced deck are smoothed, producing a very forgiving, speedy and lighter weight kayak.

The Aries is ideal for anyone looking for a versatile, lightweight and stable kayak to explore the coast line and will excite those looking for a kayak to trip out to tide races to play the sea. The Aries will cater for the day paddler and those that weekend from their kayak will not be disappointed.

Image below with optional sail fitted. Adding a sail to your kayak is a great idea, a sail can increase your range and speed to take the arduousness out of long crossings, but most of all kayak sailing is fun. The thrill of flying across the water in a small boat with the wind in your sail can't be matched.
