Ein Kajak zu kaufen ist nie so einfach, wie es sich im ersten Moment anhört. Reviews zu lesen und die Meinung von Experten oder Freunden einzuholen, kann dir bei der Entscheidung sehr helfen, aber wir alle haben unterschiedliche Geschmack, wenn es um Kajaks geht.
Wenn du in einem Kajak im Laden sitzt, kannst du entscheiden, ob dir die Fitting, das Design und die Sitzposition gefallen, aber das gibt dir keine Idee, wie sich dieses Kajak im Wildwasser fahren wird.
Um dir bei der Entscheidungsfindung zu helfen Wir haben gemeinsam mit Spade Kayaks ein Testcenter eröffnet.

S P L A T , S U R F ,SQUIRT!
This is our new down river freeride machine! Leave no rock unsplatted, no wave unsurfed, and no eddy-line unsquirted. The Bliss will take the fun on your favourite play run to a new level. With a length of 245 cm and it’s planing hull it’s perfectly suited for playful whitewater and spicing up your runs with freestyle moves along the way. The bow rocker will allow you to keep your nose dry while charging through harder rapids. Enough space in the cockpit lets you sit comfortably even after long hours on the river. It features 5 handles a solid footrest and a full sized cockpit for safe and easy exit.
U N T I L Y O U GET DIZZY
If you like to charge through pushy waves and across boiling eddy lines at the speed of a barracuda, the Joker is for you. With it’s 274 cm, an optimised waterline and smooth but pronounced bow rocker the Joker will take care of your need for speed while retaining maneuverability and precision of a slalom boat. Turning on a dime when loading the stern is a breeze and pirouetting along eddy lines might become your new normal. To maintain speed the platform of the Joker is slightly narrower compared to the Bliss, but if you catch the right wave – oh boy! The Joker features 5 handles, a solid footrest and a full sized cockpit for safe and easy exit.
The Black Jack
T H E J A C K O F ALL TRADES
The Black Jack is a modern white water kayak that perfectly bridges the gap between a river runner and a creek boat. Optimal volume distribution and plenty of rocker ensure a dry ride and provide all the stability you would expect from a modern creek boat. A semi flat hull and pronounced edges enable great control and maneuverability at all times. The wide ends give you enough surface for nice skip outs, but we kept them slicy enough to make it easier to correct your line or to rock your nose up when you put it on the edge.
The Royal Flush
P R E C I S E & T R U E TO THE LINE
The Royal Flush was designed with an active and dedicated paddler in mind. If you like to charge through big water or pushy steepness, it rewards you with magnificent speed and it’ll help you stay on line like a champion. Make sure you look alittle further ahead than you’re used to or you might miss your next move! At 274cm and 335 L of volume it’s perfectly suited for a wide range of paddlers and Olli’s weapon of choice from coaching on Slovenias class 3 to Norwegian stouts.
Queen Of Hearts
F O R L I G H T P A D D L E R S A N D YOUNGSTERS
After our successful Black Jack and Royal Flush models, we now wanted to build a boat that would make the full performance of these two designs accessible to the featherweights among us. With a width of 62cm, a length of 250cm and a volume of approx. 245 liters, the Queen Of Hearts brings light paddlers and youngsters between 35 and 70kg the driving fun that we love so much about Black Jack and Royal Flush. A low coaming edge and the slim line enable quick edge changes and the implementation of a solid stroke technique. The balanced waterline and decent bow rocker ensure the optimal balance of speed, directional stability and maneuverability. The nose always stays dry! Whether on the Upper Isar, a cruise on the Soca, or to plunge into Piemont. The Queen of Hearts has been washed with all waters.
