We’ve been following the development of the whitewater line of Soul Waterman kayaks since Corran Addison first announced them.
The new boats are almost ready for full production. As we are getting close to the release we are starting to see examples of what the actual outfitting will be like. Corran has taken some recent images of the new Soul Waterman outfitting and we are pretty impressed at Unsponsored HQ.
The seat is a contoured foam and can easily be moved forwards and backwards as it is attached using Velcro. Equally the hip pads have a wide range of adjustment through the use of slots within in the kayak.
What has really caught our interest in the new footrest system. At first glance it looks like a fairly straight forward full plate system but closer inspection shows that Corran is using a rail system for adjustment.
The main rails are fixed to the boat and are static. The outer section (close to plate) can slide and is fixed in position to the main rail using a pin.
Now we haven’t tried it out but it looks like a really neat idea.
