Mango

This one is Kevlar (extra $400) and has regatta blue cockpit cowling and fiberglass seam (extra strong and $200) the blue on Mango with the white hull is beautiful and a compass installed ($150). I am a big person with big feet and always wanted to paddle the Greenland design Caribou but just didn't fit. Now we have an Option for big people. The Isle is a super-sized Greenland style design with all the great qualities for a bigger paddler. Sized comparably to our Solstice Titan LV, it's a unique alternative to a North American style design. If you need a big person boat and seek the edging, rolling, and paddling qualities of a hard chine boat, the Isle is the boat for you. Skeg, back band, and thigh braces come standard and it has a ton of room for gear. I paddled this one and loved it. The initial stability is amazing; I was easily able to take picture with a 26X zoom lens of an eagle flying directly overhead, and on it's edge it carves very nicely and feels steady and predictable, not edgy. This is the ultimate, big person Greenland kayak and with the fiberglass seam, Kevlar construction and very cool colors, it just beckons to be paddled. I have yet to get it out in 3-4 foot waves for a personal thrill but I am sure this will become my personal favorite model sea Kayak.

Kayaks are available in several kinds of materials and with different construction methods:

Composite kayaks are made from fiberglass, kevlar and graphite in different combinations. Fiberglass, is very durable and makes a strong and economical kayak.Kevlar is lighter and very tough so less needs to be used to make a strong and very durable kayak. Graphite is even lighter than kevlar and is used in strategic locations on some models.

Plastic, Super Compound Linear Polyethylene, (SCL) is extremely tough and durable. It is used in the rotomolded models. Cuts or breaks are so rare I have never seen one, even on white water boats. UV inhibitors are blended in to protect from the sun. This is the most economical durable material Current Designs kayaks are built with. The down side is a little bit of flex and a bit more extra weight.

Thermoformed Composite System (TCS). These are made from an Acrylic and ABS plastic laminate. This plastic is stiffer and lighter than SCL polyethylene. It has the look and light weight of a fiberglass kayak, but costs less. For a more in depth description of these materials the Current Designs web site, or a catalog will help.
