The Hellbender is the most radical design on the market today. This boat was forged with the desired to create an aggressive, high-performance, slicing machine. The team drew inspiration from the classics and applied modern design innovations to create a truly unique kayak, unlike anything you’ve paddled to date. Like all great slice designs, splats, spins and getting vertical is effortless. But you’ve seen that before, and you’ve probably got a great 20-year-old boat for that style of paddling. What sets the Hellbender apart is our narrow planning hull and hard edges that allows for high-speed surfs, righteous pop and radical carving ability on waves. One surf in the Hellbender and you’ll know what we’re talking about. This boat will change the way you look at rivers. From stern squirting the smallest of eddylines to catching the world’s biggest waves, the Hellbender you will open your mind to fun and leave you grinning all the way down the river.
The Gladiator 2.0 is the perfected version of our flagship river runner. Our team has taken this kayak down everything from cruising class II to charging class V creeks. The Gladiator has proven to be the most versatile boat in our quiver. Drawing from slalom designs, the widest part of the Gladiator is right behind the cockpit at 27”. This improves stability for beginners and allows experts to make dynamic moves while running challenging whitewater. The displacement hull is easy to roll, forgiving in chaotic waters and above all, FAST. The new, low-profile stern will spice up your paddling and let you play all the way down your favorite run. Try a Gladiator today and find out what you can unlock from this timeless design.
