Our NEW 2019 Sea Eagle FastTrack inflatable kayaks were born to explore large lakes with secluded islands, long meandering rivers, intimate salt marshes with winding water passages, inland bays, hidden ocean coves. The secret of this new design is the outside drop stitch keel in the bow and the large skeg in the stern. These features combine to limit the “yaw” (the sideways movement when using a double end paddle) of this kayak and create unparalleled “bite” on the water.
When the paddler takes a paddle stroke on the left or right side, the drop stitch keel in bow acts as a block against the natural yaw of the kayak while the skeg keeps the kayak tracking forward. This “bite” propels the kayaker forward more efficiently because the natural yaw of the kayak is contained - resulting in greater speed and a straighter course - in other words, the fastest way is the straightest line.
A very important feature is the high pressure drop stitch floor. It provides rock solid rigidity to the whole structure of the kayak making it very responsive to paddle strokes. The drop stitch floor even makes this kayak rigid enough to be used as a Standup Paddle Board. The Sea Eagle 385ft and 465ft kayaks can be paddled for many miles and many hours with little effort. It will go straight in whatever direction you want and it will hold a course no matter at what angle you are paddling in relation to the wind. This new design is truly a breakthrough in the evolution of inflatable kayaks.
