Based on our popular composite model, the Gulfstream, the Sirocco will appeal to a broad market who crave performance yet want a boat that is user friendly.
The Sirocco boasts many of the features that the composite version has including recessed deck fittings, deck rigging, bulkheads and hatch systems including the 7-3/4" day hatch just behind the paddler for easy access.
This is a proven kayak, built in rotomolded polyethylene as an example of innovation at its best.
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.
