Kayak Support: Stepping Up To New RunsWelcome back to another episode of Kayak Support! This week, we're stepping up our river running game on the Piney River, in Nelson County, VA.

In this video, you'll see footage from the run, a break down some good lines, some not so good lines, and discussion of what it takes to progress and step up to new runs!

Verus Kayaks 2020 Outfitting WalkthroughTo all paddlers, the connection to the boat is just as important as the boat itself. We have redone our outfitting to feature a roto-molded plastic seat, molded in thigh braces, and an adjustable bulkhead for the Gladiator. Here is a short video going a little more in depth about what is going on inside our kayaks. Both models will feature this outfitting with the Hellbender having a foam bulkhead.
You can pre-order the 2020 lineup at: https://veruskayaks.com/product/2020-pre-order/

Verus Kayaks Gladiator 2.0 WalkthroughFor those of us who had the opportunity to paddle the original Gladiator, we're stoked to introduce the new and improved Gladiator 2.0. We've completely redesigned our outfitting with a rotomolded seat, ratcheting back band, and molded thigh hooks to keep you locked in and comfy.
