Salt 51


Designer: Björn Thomasson

Product Developer: Len Ystmark

The Salt 51 is a light training and racing kayak for protected waters – the fastest in the Salt-series. With a racing kayak style hull, a narrow foredeck and a cockpit configured for efficient paddling, the Salt 51 is a very fast and rewarding craft – but with more initial stability.
With an impressive speed/stability ratio it is ideal for ambitious paddlers not quite ready for the fastest competition kayaks, for elite paddlers after the most active years or as an all-round training craft for intermediate paddlers. The high quality of the construction and outfitting makes it a perfect club kayak.
