Delta Kayaks Fifteen 5 Expedition Kayak with Rudder - $2,315.00

With room for nearly two weeks of gear, the Delta Fifteen 5 Expedition kayak delivers superb stability for long-haul paddling trips. Roomy cockpit offers extra legroom while long, low waterline and specially shaped chine supply balance, speed and stability. Thermoformed ABS plastic hull material is stiff and light like traditional composite kayaks and with similar looks, but costs considerably less. Hull shape enhances primary stability without compromising secondary stability, allowing beginners to feel comfortable in rougher seas. Acrylic Solarkote(TM) protects the high gloss and color of the kayak from UV rays. Seat is adjustable forward and backward even while paddling so the trim of the kayak can be adjusted on the move. Great for extended touring, the generous capacity of the bow and stern hatches provide access to dry storage space for nearly two weeks worth of gear. Cockpit-deployable aluminum rudder system enhances tracking while minimizing side-slipping and helping with steering when you need it. Bulkheads create hatches to add buoyancy and keep gear dry; hardshell, recessed hatch covers with neoprene hatch seals are secured via bungee closures. Bungee deck rigging at bow and stern retains extra gear; safety straps aft of cockpit as well as nylon perimeter lines aid in paddle float self-rescue. Neoprene-padded seat and adjustable backband offer comfort and support on long trips; neoprene padding on thigh bracing improves comfort and control. Cockpit-adjustable foot braces fit most paddlers and feature a locking mechanism to disable rudder control movement. Ergonomic, rubber grab handles are easy on hands and make car-topping and transport to the water a snap. - $2,315.00
