A1 Fiberglass Polyester This is the basic construction that is thought to be an economic option for touring and learning boats.
F Carbon Foam Epoxy Vacuum Heat Cured One of the most popular constructions, it’s defined by being extremely resistant and rigid, ideal for sprint training and competition.
WWR Carbon/Kevlar Epoxy Vacuum This construction is designed for river descents, marathon training, and sea competition. His main features are: stiffness and impact resistance.
G Extra Carbon Foam Epoxy Vacuum Heat Cured High-quality construction, prepared for high performance.
E Carbon/Kevlar Vacuum Heat Cured Was specifically developed for marathon events, it stands out for the balance between its lightness and stiffness. These features gives it an excellent performance in competition.
SCS Solid Composite System Construction with an excellent performance level because of it’s extreme stiffness. Those features are possible because of the high-technology that we use in the moulding of composites. Ideal for high-competition. This construction also stands out for the extras, such as, weights and cover for the boat, and also the possibility of customizing the painting (not included in the price of the boat).
FC Full Carbon Like SCS, FC is an extremely stiff boat that can support all the power and effort applied into it. This construction is only avaialble with clear gel coat to expose the carbon, no design available. Now available on more models.
