The Eddyline Sitka LT is a lightweight, high-performing touring kayak.
The Eddyline Sitka LT kayak is a high-performance touring kayak designed for medium to large paddlers who enjoy exploring open water and long-distance touring. The kayak has a sleek, narrow profile that allows it to glide smoothly through the water, and it is made from Eddylines lightweight and durable material Carbonlite, which makes it both sturdy and easy to maneuver on and off the water. It features a roomy cockpit that is easy to enter and exit, and it comes with an adjustable seat and footrests that can be customized for a comfortable fit. The kayak also has a large, watertight storage compartment in the stern, as well as two hatches in the bow. Bungee cords on the bow and stern for additional storage.
The Sitka LT has a length of 14’6″ inches and a width of 23.5″, which makes it longer and narrower than your typical recreational kayaks. Designed to handle a variety of conditions, from calm lakes, rivers class I – II and coastal waters. It has a pronounced keel and chine that help it track straight and maintain stability, and its low profile makes it less susceptible to wind and waves. The kayak also has a retractable skeg that can be deployed to improve tracking in windy or rough conditions.
The Sitka combines the best of both worlds – the performance, efficiency, and tracking of the Eddyline Fathom touring kayaks, together with the playful nimble spirit of the Eddyline recreational kayaks.
Technology: Thermoform Composite Technology
