Caribou Adventure was designer to meet with preferences of novice and semi advanced river kayakers. Its polyethylene hull makes it very durable and forgiving for less advanced users. The bottom part of the hull was designed as a 1:1 model built by craftsmen from north of Poland with lifelong experience. The nautical study and experience in bounding kayaks allowed to maximize the performance and maneuverability at the same time keeping very high load capacity even up to 350 kg. The upper part of the hull responds to high ergonomic requirements. A thorough research of usability was vital to the design. User’s survey showed that the actual effective angle of the hull in such a way released a significant additional space for the paddle while maintaining stability characteristic to wide river kayaks. Such geometry helps to improve novice kayakers skills faster and increases the comfort of padding.

I bought a kayak a few months ago. I can recommend it to any kayaker.
I've been a paddler for several years. In a kayak I am always looking for comfort and maneuverability. Caribou meets all my requirements. I would recommend!
