The Quantum has been designed as a new fast load carrying Expedition Sea kayak. Its built for speed, its swede form (widest point behind the cockpit) for the intermediate to advanced kayaker.
A lighter version is available specifically for kayakers who want to use the kayak for fitness training. It is relatively easy to keep this kayak moving through the water at 5 knots.
It paddles well of the wind and it is possible to surf down the face of a wave and climb up and over the next.
A unique feature of this kayak is a rudder that folds down into the deck. This makes the kayak far safer for someone rescuing the kayak and paddler.
The other unique feature being a self bailer. This is fitted to the cockpit area and it is possible to empty a relatively full cockpit in under a hundred strokes.
Designed by Peter Major. Built exclusively by Sea Kayaking UK (SKUK)
The Quantum has two large oval hatches, a day hatch, rudder and compass recess.
The rudder folds down into the deck.
