- Tracking: Tracking is the holy grail of paddling and is the primary focus of the Karve. From it's aggressive displacement hull shape to the 12'' removable fin - this kayak tracks extremely straight.
- Balance: At 11.6' x 34.5'' x 8'', this board is well balanced to handle extreme water resistance and paddler weight up to 350 lbs.
- Durability: The board is inflatable, but doesn't feel like it. It's extremely rigid and forgiving on the water. Backed by our full 2-year warranty.
- Lightweight: 25 lbs! For this size of Kayak, it is extremely light.
Shape: Swede Form, where the kayak is widest behind the cockpit. This form allows for very efficient movement through the water, improving speed and maneuverability. At the 11'6'' length, this form highlights acceleration and tracking. Because of the narrow bow, the Karve Kayak punches through a steep wave, rather than ride over it. The wider than normal width (34.5''), combined with the buoyancy of the inflation, provides unmatched balance and stabilization.
