Boat material versions
Description of our material versions that you can buy when ordering our slalom boats!
The highest specification available. This construction is intended for the most demanding slalom racers addressing not only the improved construction but also the looks. The biggest advantages of Carbolight technology are: weight, durability, firmness and great look due to the first carbon layer. A combination of 3 types of foam sandwich, MGS epoxy system and superior vacuum bag technology, Carbon surface and Carbon & Carbon/Aramid combination inside the boat. New developed Pyramid technology is used to provide lighter and more solid boats that would meet new ICF requirements (read more about this technology here). The principle of new pyrmid technology is in general dual stiffness control of the aft section of the boat hull. Although seamless on the outside [except for the bow and stern tips for extra protection], there is aramid seam on the inside. With this new improved construction, this results in a very strong boat with good resistance to damage. Boat weights (no seat, footrests etc...) : K1 7.4-8.0 kg, C1 7.5-8.1 kg, C2 11.5 kg.
The most popular construction, the Profi gives a robust high performance racing construction. Vacuum bag technology is used with a combination of 3 kinds of sandwich, MGS epoxy system, SGL Carbon/Aramid fabric with no glass fabric included. Carbon-Aramid fabric makes this construction suitable for more slightly rough treatment in comparison with our Carbolight. Aramid seams (outside and inside) and hard foam-pillars (Styrodur) protect the whole boat. Weights: K1 8.0-8.4 kg, C1 8.4-8.7 kg and C2 11.7-13.5 kg.
A good economical alternative to the Profi suitable for regular competitors Uses an MGS epoxy system with SGL Carbon/Aramid fabric. Using vacuum bag technology (for the deck only) with Spheretex sandwich,the hull is 50 % Carbon/Aramid and 50% glass fabric, the deck is 40% Carbon/Aramid and 60% glass fabric. Outside and inside Aramid seams and hard foam-pillars protect the whole boat Weights: K1 8.5-9.2 kg, C1 9.2-10 kg and C2 14-15 kg.
An economical construction suitable for the beginners. The deck is a combination of carbon-aramid and glass fabric (20:80) with no vacuum technology used. The hull consists of carbon-aramid and glass fabric (50:50) with no vacuum technology used. Outside aramid and inside diolen seam, hard foampillars (Styrodur) protect the whole boat. Weights: K1 8.8-9.5 kg and C1 9.8-10.2 kg.
The most economical construction This uses epoxy resin, E-glass fabric, 2 sq meters of SGL Carbon/Aramid fabric under the seat and stiffening ribs in the hull, outside Aramid and inside diolen seam, hard foam-pillars (Styrodur) This construction is suitable for clubs and beginners who have just starting with paddling. Weights: K1 9.0-9.8 kg and C1 10.0-10.6 kg.
this construction is been used specifically for canoe polo kayaks (or for special slalom boats with request of extremly resiliant boat). Material composition of STABIL comprises mostly by carbon/aramid fibres and highly strength S-Glass fiber. This kind of fiber guarantee strength simillar to carbon with higher level of of toughness, flexibility and higher weight in comparison with carbon. S - Glass can´t be confused with standard E - Glass material, which is been used by industrial prodcution of cheap glass products. Also price of S - Glass is much higher and this material is been imported from US. This material construction guarrant high level of resistance for training and game purposes. Inside and outside seam tapes are made from aramid and overal toughness and strength of boat is supported by styrodur foam bracing.
