Salt 55

Composite

Designer: Björn Thomasson

Product Developer: Len Ystmark

The Salt 55 is a racer/trainer for intermediate paddlers or ambitious beginners. While significantly more stable than the Salt 51, the difference in top speed is surprisingly small and in touring pace negligible. For those not quite comfortable in Salt 51, the Salt 55 may even be faster overall, since stability makes it easier for the paddler to take full advantage of his or her technique and strength. The high quality of the construction and outfitting makes it a perfect intermediate club kayak.
