"Mirroring the elegance of traditional sea kayaks, the Ellesmere combines the advantages of the reverse hard chine with a semi-arched hull. Designed for the experienced paddler, standard equipment includes a skeg, sturdy anodized aluminum footrests, a back band seat, thigh braces, recessed fittings and a deck line. The kayak also features a practical paddle rest in front of the cockpit. A day hatch is available as an option." The reverse hard chine, a concept unique to BORÉAL DESIGN, optimizes kayak behavior during a lean turn, with the inverted chine coinciding with the waterline. The kayak's low profile affords minimal resistance to wind. The comfortable, close-fitted adjustment of the low cockpit allows the paddler to lie back during rolls, making them easier to navigate.No element of safety or comfort has been neglected: sturdy binders, watertight hatches for baggage, and more."
