New Seats

The seat is an essential tool for all kayakers, it has become one of the first personalization tools to be used and that is available to all. Being very individual it is important for us as boat producers to offer a wide range of seats, for example in last years Olympic 1000mt K1 final, there was 2 of each kind of seats in a total of 4 different kinds ( Rotating, Ultra Low, Nelo and Standard), showing how personal this choice is.

In the new Vanquish III we have made small adjustments to the shape of the seats, but on the other hand we have made major improvements on the seats themselves:

1. They are now 100% Carbon Epoxy,
2. They are no longer manually cut, but cut using a Robot,
3. They are built using compression molding.

That makes them lighter, stiffer, accurately balanced and also more comfortable.

For all those using the old seats and wishing to keep the same position in the boat, the relation of the rails with the new seat is the same in length, and in height has more one position (-1), that allows a new lower position not available before.
