NC 17 Competition Description

The NC17 series is an extremely fast and effecient touring kayak, great for your training or daily exercise routine. With excellent Rough Water handling characteristics, great tracking and virtually no weathercocking. In Flat Water conditions it is incredibly smooth and fast! It's designed for large bodiies of water including Open Ocean. While still maneuverable enough for great fun on the lake. The NC17 series truly shines in Open Water. Designed to track arrow-straight without the assistance of a rudder or skeg. With as few as three paddle strokes you can go from a full stop to full speed. You can feel the boat accelerate with every stroke. While you may not be a racer, the speed is also pretty handy when you're battling currents or simply wanting to get from point A to point B with less effort and time. The NC17 series best fits paddlers measuring 5'0"- 6'2" weighing between 100-240 lbs. with up to a size 13½ shoe.
