Composite Construction Kayaks

Polyethylene

CoreLite X

We've used our industry leading precision machinery, exclusively sourced and developed materials, and over 25 years of rotomoulding experience to produce the advanced sandwich layer construction which we call CoreLite X.

An excellent stiffness to weight ratio enhances the performance of our hull designs, narrowing the gap between polyethylene and composite.

MZ3

Some models are also available in our single layer MZ3 construction.

Tried and tested in our Pyranha whitewater range, MZ3 offers high impact and scratch resistance at a readily affordable price point; a great choice for centres and hirers, or those on a budget.

YOU WON'T SEE THE DIFFERENCE BUT YOU'LL DEFINITELY FEEL IT

2 to 3kg Lighter

When compared to our previous CoreLite construction, making the boat easier to handle both on and off the water.

Increased Hull Stiffness

Resulting in noticeably higher performance on the water, with the hull cutting more cleanly and efficiently through the water.
