The BARBUSA is the newest kayak model for children, it originates from the popular Toril. The Barbusa is scaled down for a child’s body and it allows the child to have the same kayaking experience as an adult; even the youngest kayakers are able to imitate the moves of their older idols. The dimensions of the Barbusa meet the rules of the ICF.Compared to the Toril the Barbusa turns faster with the tail under water and it is more responsive.The volume of the Barbusa is smaller at the front of the boat and the kayak is narrower when you compare it with an adult model. This means a young paddler can pull the blade along the kayak and the stroke is much better, therefore developing a good paddling technique.The cockpit is slightly smaller than the usual cockpit size. This allows children to easily put their spray deck on and off without help.We recommend the BARBUSA for children aged 9 -13 of weight up to 45 kgs.
The highest specification available. This construction is intended for the most demanding slalom racers addressing not only the improved construction but also the looks. The biggest advantages of Carbolight technology are: weight, durability, firmness and great look due to the first carbon layer. A combination of 3 types of foam sandwich, MGS epoxy system and superior vacuum bag technology, Carbon surface and Carbon & Carbon/Aramid combination inside the boat. New developed Pyramid technology is used to provide lighter and more solid boats that would meet new ICF requirements. The principle of new pyrmid technology is in general dual stiffness control of the aft section of the boat hull. Although seamless on the outside [except for the bow and stern tips for extra protection], there is aramid seam on the inside. With this new improved construction, this results in a very strong boat with good resistance to damage. Boat weights (no seat) : K1 6.6-7.4 kg, C1 6.8-7.5 kg, C2 11 kg.
