Soul Kayaks – New Power Seat

Corran Addison has recently released some images of the new power seat fitted within the also new Soul composite Super Sic playboat.

New Power Seat

Peak UK Racer ST - First Look

The Racer ST combines a cag, deck and PFD into one single piece of gear. We’ve seen and used cag decks (top decks)from Peak UK in the past and they have been a firm favourite at Unsponsored HQ, but adding the PFD element takes this to a whole new level.

The Dagger Phantom – What Do We Know

So what do we know about the kayak Dagger are currently assigning the name Phantom. Firstly if and when it comes into production the boat will most likely have a different name. The maximum length of boats for the short boat class in races such as the Green Narrows river race is now 9ft. The Phantom will fall within the category.

The first and second prototypes of this Phantom have been on the water for a few years and a third prototype will be hitting the water very shortly. In all likelihood this will be a preproduction model and will represent what the finally Phantom will look like.
