Material: Three layer polyethylene
Victory is manufactured in a hightech material of three layer HDPE polyethylene. This type of plastic provides an unique combination of rigidity, weight and durability.
Victory HV is designed to be a responsive, fun kayak for leisurely touring. Its design is focused on creating a harmonious blend of diverse qualities. Victory model is quite fast – not in terms of top speed, but at an impressive touring pace demanding very little effort.
Victory is stable, but not excessively so; too much stability leads to violent motion in waves, an experience which you won’t have in this kayak. Instead, its initial stability is downplayed slightly in favor of excellent secondary stability, providing for easy, predictable movement in wavy conditions and the near guarantee of a dry run to the benefit for all, experts as well as beginners.
Sitting in the kayak is very comfortable, wide cockpit for easy access, padded seat and adjustable thigh braces. The kayak also includes a new backrest regulation system which allows you to adjust positioning while sitting securely
in the vessel. Thigh braces can also be regulated by ten centimeters both ways. In the back and front of the kayak deck there are rubber lines, which are meant for holding gear: drinking water, spare paddle, sleeping mat, etc.
Expedition has ergonomic handles in the bow and stern to transport the kayak on land.
Victory’s highly balanced performance profile makes it a superb all-around kayak for most paddlers and purposes.
