Specifications for Vision 140
|IN STOCK COLOR
Please call for a price. I can sometimes get these as blems or old stock for the price listed. Otherwise they are worth the money for a first quality. The Vision 140 offers great performance with more room to spare and can carry a load up to about 300 pounds. This 14 boat is perfect for everyday use. Add on the optional rudder for even better tracking and steering capabilities. A friend bought one and has placed first or second in every race I have sponsored all summer, that's 4 so far. It's fast and reasonably reasonably maneuverable. He says it holds a straight line way better than the kayak he had been using even in the wind.
All members of the Vision family have a generously sized keyhole cockpit that allows for easy entry and exit, as well as ample foot room and large storage capacity. They also feature lower faceted decks that have minimal wind exposure making for an enjoyable in-control paddling experience. These features coupled with the confidence inspiring 24 beam allow the Vision 140 paddler to experience a true kayak fit and feel while developing a myriad of skills at their own pace.
The Vision 140 is constructed from a vacuum bagged composite of aramid and fiberglass, which allows for an unsurpassed combination of light weight, stiffness, toughness and value.
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.
