After a very enriching Olympic cycle, where we reached enormous success with the Vanquish II, it was the time to bring something new to the market.
The amount of expertise we got and received from athletes, coaches and ourselves, was huge, and we actually had to hold ourselves back not to operate some of this ideas before the 2008 Olympics.
The improvements we have applied are consistent with ones previously made, what means the new generation of Vanquishes is one more step in the direction in the quest of the perfect boat.
More technically we reached a new level of stability, glide and performance. The new line is easier to handle direction and glide wise, allowing more comfort what leads to even better performance. Also changes were operated in the deck to help the athlete with more mobility, to give him a bigger feeling of “transmission” and “connection” to the boat and very important a balanced, aggressive and good looking kayak.
In what concerns the weight ranges they were kept the same, as well as the sizing in the C1’s where we keep the same 4 sizes. In the C2 class appears the only new model the C2 Vanquish III M.
The new K1, C1 and C2 models are now in production, the K2 and K4 models are expected in March 09.
One of the big advantages of the composites is that they don’t require much maintenance; of course there are some crucial rules to extend the lifetime of your boat:
Boats should be used only by trained persons or under supervision.
The use should be done under the rules established for each boat class.
After receiving your boat, we recommend you do some tests to find your best trim, to find it you should:
This is just one of many methods of finding the best position, though it always changes slightly from person to person, but these are the basic rules.
Making your rudder straight is an essential part of enjoying your boat.
In order to make it 100% perfect you should use the straps inside your boat:
While paddling you can also make little adjustments by pulling the strap on the side the T Bar is tending to.
