Katana 10.4

For the adventurer who is interested in the whitewater lifestyle and expedition style multi-water trips, but who doesn’t want to limit their kayaking adventures only to whitewater, the Katana is designed with confidence, flexibility and comfort in mind on flat or up to class III whitewater. The Katana was designed to inspire confidence in the paddler with a balanced rocker profile for speed on the flat and maneuverability in whitewater. The hull is designed for initial stability while the beveled and flared side-walls create secondary stability. The rounded stern deck shape, taken from the Mamba design, sheds water easily, making it forgiving in moving water. The Katana also offers a more spacious cockpit than traditional whitewater designs for a less confining feeling.

  • Just back from a self supported post-permit float down the Selway in Idaho: a river that the Katana could have been designed for. At the put in on August 1, it's little more than a creek with tight technical class 2-3 rapids. 30 wiles and 1000 feet of drop later, the rapids start to become more powerful and a few genuine and increasingly powerful 4's show up. Last time I did a low water Selway trip was in a raft, and it was hard work. My Katana slipped through the tight rapids, with impeccabl

  • Got one & I think its great. Just the ticket if you want a "Jack of all Trades" type kayak that is pleasantly masterful too. Sharing the company of my paddling companions all in sea kayaks its held it own on estuary, lake & coastal paddles....so far. River & surf next & I'm very confident it'll perform excellently. Using the same boat to do everything is just brilliant. Saves a fortune on having a fleet of dedicated craft. I do have to concur with previous comments on the pricing department. A

  • Can't wait to try one! This looks like all the answers to the type of kayak I'm looking for to take out on overnight trips on mild rivers with occasional rapids sections! Can't wait to try it. The price does seem a bit steep, but you gotta pay to play I suppose!

  • Looks like you made a great boat but if you are trying to bring in the recreational yaker you are priced a little to high it should fall more in line with the axis. And my next question will you ever make it in a 12' 6" length same spect's just lendth sincerely Tony Constantine
