Specifications for Vision 150
|IN STOCK COLOR
Paddlers are loving this kayak. It's size, fit, comfort and performance are sought after. One paddle, and even if it isn't the kayak for you, you will agree it is awesome. I've sold many Visions this year and am offering one more at this introductory price. Full sized and fully functional as a recreational touring kayak, the Vision 150 delivers an excellent mix of efficiency and maneuverability. With a standard rudder and longer 15 length, the Vision 150 displays the highest level of tracking amongst the solo Vision line. The Vision 150 is a perfect step up boat for beginners allowing for further technique and skill development.
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 150 paddler to experience a true kayak fit and feel while developing a myriad of skills at their own pace.
The Vision 150 is constructed from a vacuum bagged composite of aramid and fiberglass, which allows for an unsurpassed combination of light weight, stiffness, toughness and value. The Vision 150 is also offered in a budget conscious rotomolded polyolefin construction for the toughest boat possible.
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.
