The Expedition Kayaks Aurora

$5,790.00

The third in our fleet of sea kayaks designed to cover ground in serious conditions, the Aurora  is a very user-friendly hull for lighter paddlers.

Featuring the same searing waterline and width as the high performance Azure, it has a wider bilge, a flatter, more stable section under the paddler, and is a little more inclined to play and manouvre when unladen.

If the aim of the Azure was to produce a boat with all of the stops removed, the Aurora is there for those like a little more primary stability, without sacrificing too much speed.

These design features weren't reached through theorising alone; since the first prototype was built more than 18 months before the kayak went into production we handed it over to a big range of paddlers, both confident and not-so-confident, in a wide variety of sea and bay conditions. We sought feedback each time, and honed the shape as we saw gaps between our theory and the reality on the water, and feel as though we now have a boat with the same broad appeal and performance scope as the Audax, for lighter paddlers.

The result is a sea kayak with potential for racing and fitness paddling, with a carrying capacity up to 120kg for extended multi day or multi week expeditions. It's made in Australia, designed and fitted out by Rob Mercer, and completely customisable to your colours and preferences.
