Vajda Slalom

In the world of canoe slalom racing Vajda is the Number One Choice of Champions! They are the leaders in Canoe Slalom Systems Technology and Development with some impressive results across the board in both K1, C1 and C2 Slalom at both World Cup, World Championships and Olympic Games.

Vajda has a maximum of 9 boat sizes and 5 levels of construction in their slalom boats.  There are also 10 x K1 models, 12 x C1 models and 2  x C2 models in their range making stocking these boats in Australia impossible from our point of view. All slalom boats are therefore custom orders from the factory in Slovakia.
