Details

A transitional kayak for the beginner to advanced beginner style paddler. Unusually light, strong and stiff, the Vision 150 Comp kayak with rudder features a hybrid construction of fiberglass and polyaramid (the same material found in Kevlar®). A vacuum-bagged composite lamination eliminates excess resin, which improves strength and reduces weight to 48 lbs.
15 ft. length offers plenty of speed, tracking and stability during day or overnight paddles. Swede-form construction enhances speed and maneuverability, and it allows bow to punch through waves instead of riding up and over them
Shallow-V hull enhances tracking and offers friendly stability and a lively feel in the water; low decks minimize wind resistance
Keyhole-shape cockpit is easy to enter and exit, and integrated foam thighbraces on interior coaming increase comfort when bracing or carving turns
Seat creates a natural, comfortable paddling position by tilting the entire seat pan up and away from cockpit floor
Use the lever-lock knob—similar to a quick-release fork on a bike wheel—to set the seat pan to the desired height
Locking mechanism prevents both side-to-side and up-and-down motion
To prevent numbness, seat pan features a contoured space for lower vertebrae and is covered with plush, nonabsorbent, very thick padding
Seat back moves up and down and back and forth, and it articulates to move with your paddling motion
Sliding bar adjusts foot pegs without having to get out and reach inside cockpit
Deployable skeg enhances tracking in rough weather; use the slider on the side of the cockpit to engage.
Rear hatch provides enough storage for an overnight trip and features an easy-to-use, rubberized hatch cover
Bow hatch features rubberized cover and an additional hard cover with straps to protect contents from splashes
Bulkheaded bow and stern hatches provide generous dry cargo storage during extended voyages and enhance flotation when hatches are sealed
Bow, stern and center bungee deck rigging securely store extra gear on top
Toggled carry handles ease transport of the 48 lb.

Swede Form: Widest behind the cockpit, Swede form has a cleaner, longer, and more slender entry, giving efficient touring speeds and maneuverability. In shorter lengths these kayaks are very responsive. Longer kayaks with this feature have amazing acceleration and track well. Because of the narrow bow they may punch through a steep wave, rather than ride over it.
Soft Chine: A smooth transition from the bottom of the hull to the sides. Soft chines give smooth edging at unlimited angles. The majority of kayaks that we build have a soft chine.

Shallow V: The “V” shape improves tracking, has a lively feel and delivers very comfortable stability.

Keyhole Cockpit: A keyhole cockpit blends the openness of a recreational cockpit and the integrated thigh braces of a touring cockpit. The result is an easy to enter and exit cockpit that offers performance, fit, and solid connectivity to the kayak.
