Solara 120 rotomolded
Current Designs has a way of taking the task of making recreational kayaks very seriously. The new highly stable Solara line is a great Example. This 12 foot kayak is even more stable than the 10 foot, tracks very well, is very roomy, has the industries most comfortable seat, top quality, water tight and easy to use hatches in both the bow and stern for dry storage, great foot braces and comfortable knee pads and nice deck rigging. Top this off with a very durable polyethylene construction, new colors and you have a friend for life at a good price. The weight limit on this one is 350 pounds but it will paddle better with a bit less. The rotomolded Solaras are available in Blue, Yellow, Sand and the multi color Pacific swirl.
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.
