The Isle is a super-sized Greenland style design with all their great qualities for a larger paddler. Sized comparably to our Solstice GT Titan, it's a unique alternative to a North American style design. Great handling and incredibly efficient, the Isle is an awesome long distance tripping kayak. If you need a big person boat and seek the edging, rolling, and paddling qualities of a hard chine kayak, the Isle is the boat for you. Skeg, back band, and thigh braces come standard.
Symmetrical Form: Symmetrical form is just as it sounds. The shape is identical fore and aft from the center point of the kayak.
Hard Chine: A hard chine kayak has a well defined edge where the hull bottom meets the sides. This increases the initial stability greatly. Hard chines give defined edging angles and assist in holding an edge.
Shallow V: The “V” shape improves tracking, has a lively feel and delivers very comfortable stability.
Touring Cockpit: Touring cockpits are somewhat small to help resist imploding of the spray skirt if hit by a large wave in rough water. They include built-in thigh braces on the cockpit rim to maximize control when edging and rolling. They range from 29” to 35” long, depending on the model.
