High on Swedish engineering - low on ego.
Ever wondered why great design has to cost an arm and a leg? Well, we asked ourselves that same question and came up with a great idea; the Five-O-Five.
A fully-fledged one-layer polyethylene touring kayak designed for entry and medium level paddlers, it is not only the perfect choice for outﬁtters and paddling schools but also for the paddler seeking an affordable and high-quality touring boat. At 505 cm (yes hence the name) 16’7¨it offers great glide and tracking. Two watertight compartments come as standard with the Five-O-Five. The bow compartment is accessed via a round hatch while the aft hatch is oval for easy-loading of bulkier items. Innovative foot-braces offer improved control, and the back-rest is not only very functional but also extremely comfortable. Need some extra steering capabilities? An optional rudder is available. The cockpit is designed for easy entry and exit and is large enough to suit all types of paddlers.
With its exceptional stability and performance, the kayak you can afford to paddle is ﬁnally a kayak you actually want to paddle. Five-O-Five; touring made affordable.
