K2

As well as their extensive range of K1 boats Kayak Centre also produce some of the world’s most successful downriver K2 boats with race results to prove it. At first glance the fittings and finishes of their boats are more simple than the European built boats but when put to use you will find the boats lack nothing in performance and functionality.

There are boats to cater for beginners, intermediate, elite, recreational, masters and children. Each model is available in 6 river constructions.

Weight of the boat will vary according to the shape, size and construction.

K2 Velox Invader- Designed to bridge the gap between the modern “Slimline” designed K2’s and the older wedged boats. This is an ideal boat for the crew that wants to be competitive without sacrificing stability. Retaining the wedge shape, although narrower then previously required, gives the Velox Invader excellent secondary stability. With modern thinking of volume placement in the hull resulting in a very good cruising speed the Velox Invader performs well in River and Flatwater races.

Good for crews weighing between 120-200kg.

Available in Medium & Large
