SPECIAL FEATURES

POWERGLIDE FOOTREST SYSTEM

In 2014 after 2 years of development and innovation Vajda introduced a unique POWERGLIDE no screw Footrest system into all their kayaks.

This system allows one handed fast adjustment of the footplate positioning and can even be done whilst on the water during paddling. This has been a huge success for clubs with multiple paddlers using club craft.

The POWERGLIDE CLUB footrest is standard in all Club, River, Sport and Marathon constructions.

The POWERGLIDE ELITE footrest is standard in all World Cup constructions but can be custom ordered in your boat on request.

HOW TO ORDER
The most important decision when choosing a K1 is to pick the correct boat. Choosing a K1 means mulling over a long list of characteristics and compromises. Paddling a K1 that is not correct for your size, weight and ability can be detrimental to your paddling and progression in the sport. At APS  we will not sell you a boat that we do not think you are capable of paddling or that is not suited to your ability.
Choosing the right K1 takes time. You need to know which boat is the most suitable for you. You need to decide which volume is the most appropriate too. Once you’ve decided on those, you need to decide which construction suits your needs and budget – Lightweight? Bombproof? Extra stiff? Sprint weight?

Then – you need to decide which accessories your require: Seat type, Footrest, pull bar etc.

Finally – and possibly the hardest decision – which colour you would like. We may have some boats in stock that you like or you may like to custom order your own boat and choose your own design.

These aren’t decisions to be taken lightly, so we recommend giving us a call or dropping us an email to ensure we can supply you with the boat that is the best for you.
