CURRENT MODELS K1

SICARIO – The Latest model out of the KTW factory  the Sicario was  designed for the World Cup in French Pau on September/October 2017.

SICARIO LIGHT – The  Sicario design for light weight paddlers

This kayak was designed to cope with sharp transitions between fast-flowing water and reverse currents at maximum speed. With a sleek modern design the Sicario also shows great acceleration when moving across quieter passages.

WAKATWO-  Younger sister of the extremely popular Waka the main modifications concern the front deck and increased paddler’s comfort allowing a better view of the course. The extraordinary success of this model is confirmed by the fact that, despite the age of the kayak model, it is still popular on the market.

Wakatwo helped to win the title of 2009 Junior World Champion for Antoine Sudrie form France and for Viole Risso from Italy.

Can also be built as Wakatwo Light with modified bottom to give the bow a smaller displacement making it more suitable for ladies and children.

WINI –Based on the Wakatwo this is the ideal boat for  athletes of lighter weight. Thanks to her perfectly shaped front deck Wini gives you better comfort and a better view on the course.

Can also be built as Wini Light with modified bottom to give the bow a smaller displacement making it more suitable for ladies and children.

“I think this boat is great, it is very responsive in the white water but is still stable and fast on the flat. Good boat!”
Hannah Brown, member of GBR wild water team

TONGA – The most popular model in the Kick the waves range it was made especially for the 2010 Wildwater World Championships in Sort -Spain. The boat has perfect stability and manoeuvrability in white water as well as extraordinary speed on flat water . Tonga’s newly designed narrow bow captures your imagination at first sight and a paddler can feel its speed just during his/her first strokes. Raised bow and stern, along with a “round” bottom profile provides exceptional manoeuvrability and rotation.

The fact that the boat is two centimetres wider in the seating position than Wakatwo kayak contributes to the maximal manoeuvrability of the boat. The space in the area of the athletes’ knees was made wider too and that’s why kayakers with their height of around 200cm have no problem comfortably seated in this kayak. Tonga is supplied with a special seat (it can be equipped even with a back strap), which allows athlete to have even larger control over the boat.

CAYENNE – Designed by Tomas Slovak, Sesia Maxim Clerin and other French Representatives for the 2014 World Championships in the Italian Valtellina,  the Cayenne is based on the popular Tonga but is bigger, especially on the rear deck. The main goal was to improve handling in extreme whitewater while maintaining speed on calm water.  Thanks to the larger volume of the Cayenne it supports also competitors with higher weight, while for lighter competitors it can be cut and individually modified.
