Nordic Kayaks Nitro

Elite surfski, as fast as it gets!

The Nitro is a top elite surfski designed for the elite paddler looking for maximum speed! In flat water this boat is as fast as a K1 (for many even faster), but on the sea and large lakes its where it excels. Great surfing properties in the downwind with an exceptional ability to connect and climb waves.

The combination of the volume distribution, the positioning of the cockpit and the distance to the rudder results in a very agile ski that can be mastered well even in breaking waves.

Since 2020 the Nitro has been manufactured with our latest cockpit with great freedom for movement and a very comfortable seat that has been developed during years of testing and feedback.

The Nitro 640 has our longer cockpit and fits paddlers from 165cm to approx. 200cm and more. The Nitro 600 has a 5cm shorter cockpit and fits paddlers from approx. 155cm – 195cm. The cutouts on the sides are designed in such a way that it allows for a perfect paddle catch.

If you ask us: it doesn’t get better.

Equipment

  • carbon fiber footrest with self adjusting lines made for easy length adjustment
  • deBrito (vs 3) foot controlled self bailer, the most efficient on the market
  • anchor point for leash on the foot strap
  • bike-bottle holder including NK sports bottle in cockpit
  • packing net on back deck
  • NK/deBrito rudder control yoke for optimal smooth steering
  • Race rudder as standard

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.
