Our answer to the new Olympic discipline »Extreme Slalom« – and yet so much more. If you want to be successful in tough competition, you need a fast-as, agile kayak that executes radical maneuvers without a second thought. Wait – that sounds like a boat with which you can have endless fun in real whitewater, too? That’s right! You could say the Barracuda is a smaller Joker with a flatter stern. But to do it justice, we’ll have to elaborate a little further: Overall, the platform is kept a bit narrower to generate more speed through a steep paddle stroke. And to make sure that speed isn’t lost on the next stopper, we’ve given the Barracuda a re-designed rocker and steeper sidewalls in the bow. And in the back? That’s where the party starts! Thanks to significantly more slice behind the butt, the stern cuts through the water like a knife through butter. But don’t worry – the Barracuda is balanced so that the slim tail can be released just as easily, giving you an extra boost. Enjoy the ride!
We know better than most that outfitting is perhaps the most important aspect of a kayak. This interface between you and the hull is integral to your control and feedback while on the water and cannot be underestimated. Our ergonomically focused outfitting has been specially designed for long days on the water without adding excess weight to the kayak.
Key to this is the integrated seat-rail-tower combination that gives you optimal control over your setup. The thigh braces, hip pads, backrest, and seat pad have all been tried and tested to make sure they are ready for tireless days on the water. The central pillar supports the cockpit in high-pressure situations such as pins or over drops. It can also be used as a step-out pillar for safe exits in whitewater.
