Quantum Description

The Quantum has been designed as a new fast load carrying Expedition Sea kayak. It's built for speed, its swede form (widest point behind the cockpit) for the intermediate to advanced kayaker. A lighter version is available specifically for kayakers who want to use the kayak for fitness training. It is relatively easy to keep this kayak moving through the water at 5 knots. It paddles well of the wind and it is possible to surf down the face of a wave and climb up and over the next. A unique feature of this kayak is a rudder that folds down into the deck. This makes the kayak far safer for someone rescuing the kayak and paddler.
