The Gladiator is a new kayak from US based company Verus.

Verus Gladiator

Here is what they have to say about the Gladiator:

The Gladiator has been the culmination of three years of work studying boat design and gaining inspiration from some of the most innovative boat designs currently on the market. The goal of the Gladiator was to create a displacement hull with a smooth rocker that transitioned from bow to stern. The Gladiator is 76 gallons, which lends itself well to being what we envisioned as a ‘playful’ creeker. Its versatility makes it a perfect match for challenging creeks or substantial eddy lines ideal for stern squirts. The Gladitator is by the far the most fun we’ve ever had creeking. We can’t wait for you to test out this boat!

Preorder is now available for the Gladiator! Custom plastic layup and boat color are available with your preorder, which you will be contacted about via email after submitting your order.

Preorders are expected to be ready for delivery by the end of February and can be delivered directly to your doorstep anywhere in Canada and the United States. Only 20 preorders are needed before we can begin production for the Gladiator, so don’t miss your opportunity to be one of the first to paddle our playful creeker!

Preorders end on December 24th at Midnight.
