For the adventurer who is interested in the whitewater lifestyle and expedition style multi-water trips, but who doesn’t want to limit their kayaking adventures only to whitewater, the Katana is designed with confidence, flexibility and comfort in mind on flat or up to class III whitewater.
The Katana was designed to inspire confidence in the paddler with a balanced rocker profile for speed on the flat and maneuverability in whitewater. The hull is designed for initial stability while the beveled and flared side-walls create secondary stability. The rounded stern deck shape, taken from the Mamba design, sheds water easily, making it forgiving in moving water. The Katana also offers a more spacious cockpit than traditional whitewater designs for a less confining feeling.
