K1

Kayak Centre have produced some of the most successful downriver K1 boats in the world 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. Adding to their extensive range of river boats Kayak Centre  are now developing some of the most innovative kayaks aimed at the flatwater marathon market.

There are boats to cater for beginners, intermediate, elite, recreational, masters and children. Each model is available in 6 river constructions and 2 flatwater constructions.

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

Note: When a boat is given a stability rating for river use, the stability will be different on flatwater.
