Nordic Kayaks K1

Light and strong marathon kayaks for racing and exercise

K1 41 & K1 43 & K1 45– fast racing kayaks with hull shapes developed from our surf skis based on optimal hydrodynamics which together with our extremely light carbon fiber construction provides very easily driven kayaks regardless of whether you choose 45, 43 or 41 cm width.

Of course, there is a little more top speed to pick up in K1 41 which turns to the competition paddler while K1 43 is intended for an experienced exercise paddler. The K1 45 provides some extra stability without loosing too much cruising speed which suits a wide range of paddlers. All three models are perceived as stable for their width.

The seat is designed to provide good support around the entire seat cup, this makes the difference from a more open typical seat that you sit more comfortably for a longer period of time. The back end is sloping and enables good rotation and leg work. The seats are available in 2 heights depending on what you prefer.

The footrest with pedals and large base plate together with our adjustable foot strap gives the paddler good and stable footrest with a quick steering response.

Equipment

  • carbon pedal rudder
  • „Surfski-Style“ seat
  • Standard rudder: Marathon
  • optional: deBrito Self Bailer, bulkhead

Autoclave Prepreg Technology

All boats at NK are made with prepreg carbon in an autoclave. This is one of the most expensive and complex production processes and is not yet widespread in the kayak world.

Due to the homogeneous material distribution of prepregs and the high, precisely defined temperatures and pressures in the autoclave, the surfski and kayaks achieve extreme strength with low weight.

The individual layers form a very intensive connection, which ensures a very long service life and high reliability of the kayaks. The technology is otherwise used in space travel or Formula 1 and in Ramumbel.

„What I have noticed first are the seat, where you feel like in K1 because it's easy to use the legs and keep a good posture and the construction quality.“
