Stellar Apex Trainer/Para K1 Description

The Stellar Apex Para K1 (Apex P) conforms to the regulations set by the ICF for a Paralympic K1. The Apex P is designed to have long smooth waterlines and the minimal wetted surface area for this boat class for superior acceleration and speed. The increased hull stability of the Apex P and strong 3-point footbrace provide a solid platform for a powerful leg drive. Stellar offer a variety of seating and footbrace options for the Apex P, from the standard sprint seat to full bucket seat, to help fit your individual needs. With the standard seat, the Apex Trainer K1 (Apex T) is a great off season trainer or perfect for intermediate paddlers looking to get into a sprint kayak. The Apex T has great top end speed and can turn on a dime, perfect for marathon racing!

Based on the previous...

Based on the previous review I purchased an Apex T from Stellar of Austin and Terry Davison was a joy to work with. My boat was drop shipped and came packaged well enough to have a tank roll over it.

Taking the yak out for the first time today I was quite surprised by the great amount of stability here even in medium wind conditions. I really like the seating positions that you can set up and the boat truly is feather light making for easy car topping. It is going to take me a while to get used to tiller bar steering but the Apex T is a lot of fun to paddle already and no one should worry about this boat being too tippy.

I have written reviews...

I have written reviews here in the past. I quit doing so since I became a Stellar Kayak and Surf Ski dealer in January 2013. I just didn't feel comfortable writing reviews for a company I represent. Yet I'm making an exception. Why? Because the Apex Trainer needs to be discovered!

Let's start off by saying the boat is fast. Very fast. The market is flooded with fast boats I know. What makes this so special is how easy it is to make it go fast. Surprisingly stable (stable being a relative term). The only time it's not stable is in confused large boat generated seas. Obviously the kayak isn't made for that.

I see it as a kayak that has 2 purposes: A fun way to keep in shape, and for marathon racing in protected waters. A perfect example would be the Tour Du Teche.

At 25.7 lbs in Advantage lay-up and 17' it's very easy to load, and unload.
