Rockpool Kayaks has added a new low volume kayak to its fleet – the Tarantella.
Two years after the Taran 16 was launched to critical acclaim, the Tarantella 312 litres has been designed to provide a true low volume version of the record breaking design.
Developed in response to popular demand, the Tarantella is designed specifically for smaller, lighter paddlers. It features the same distinctive bow, long waterline, high front deck and flat hull making it a fast, dry kayak to paddle both up and down-wind.
Mike Webb, Rockpool Kayaks founder, said: “The Taran 16 has proved to be exceptionally popular with a wide range of paddlers but while it is 43cm shorter than the original Taran, it is not a low volume kayak.
“Combining speed with manoeuvrability, the Tarantella is a high performance sea kayak that will suit many lighter paddlers who want a fast boat which is also stable and responsive, to help them stay with the group.
“Like the Taran and Taran 16, the Tarantella performs perfectly when loaded for expedition use but it also makes an exceptional training boat – one which is just as much at home on choppy seas as it is on flat water. It’s a light, fast boat that’s easy to paddle anywhere.“
The Tarantella is available with a choice of rudder footrest systems and seat sizes and features Rockpool’s trademark secure and comfortable thigh braces.
