The Vajda Raptor kayak is a recreational K1 made from a tough, durable & incredibly stiff thermo-formed ABS plastic known as Styrolight. Based on the surf ski Vajda HAWX 52 this is a K1 that is robust, stiff, light, fast and UV-stable.
The Raptor kayak includes the Vajda PowerGlide footrest system adapted from the superb ergonomics of their famous race craft. All Vajda kayak accessories can also be fitted to this kayak. ie rudders and foot straps etc At 5.3m long it is slightly longer than a K1 giving you a faster touring boat. When fitted with the optional trailing rudder this will be the perfect down river boat!
Thermoform plastic provides a product similar to the quality of fiberglass in appearance and performance, but at a lower cost.
