Designed for rough water and covering distances, this expedition kayak is maneuvrable, direction stable and carry higher loads. Designed to fit the large paddler. The volume in the cockpit has been increased by adding 1.5" (3,8 cm) of extra height between top of the seat and underside of the deck. Also, a raised area either side of the cockpit has been added to facilitate more leg room. The hull has not been altered.
The Explorer HV is fitted with the High performance glass seat, unless otherwise requested. The kayak has a low rear deck for easy rolling, a keyhole cockpit that gives excellent grip, control and allows quick exit if need be. The sloping bulkhead behind the seat allows the kayak to be emptied by lifting only the bow, no x-rescue is necessary.
