The Valkyrie is a sea kayak designed for speed; whether you use that speed to take on more extensive open water crossings and expeditions, to challenge a circumnavigation record, or just to inject a touch more adrenaline in to your day trips, is up to you.
A narrow, vertical bow maintains maximum waterline length whilst slicing cleanly through the water, creating a clean path for the rest of the kayak’s hull to follow effi ciently; added benefi ts of this shape are increased bow hatch volume, and a more engaged hull at the bow to counteract windage.
Rounding out the Valkyrie’s high performance design are ergonomic paddle entry cutaways, a low volume back deck for unhindered rolling and re-entry, and of course, moulded-in fi ttings for quick and easy installation of the P&H Kayak Sail Systems.
Choose this kayak for:
+ Slender hull with maximum waterline for maximum speed.
+ Square cross-section hull under the paddler off ers supreme initial stability, and also lends itself well to surfi ng.
+ Paddle entry cutaways just in front of the cockpit allow more vertical blade entry closer to the kayak for optimum paddle stroke effi ciency.
+ Highly rockered, cut-off stern effi ciently releases surface tension, and is preceded by a pronounced rocker profi le to loosen up the stern when turning between waves and provide lift during downwind surfi ng.
+ Lightly angled hatch rims towards the centre of the kayak allow easier access, particularly when loading longer items.
+ Highly adjustable outfi tting: adjustable thigh grips, seat, backrest, and footrests allow the paddler to fi nd a comfortable fi t that’s tailored to them.
