K1 Falcon C

Our most popular K1 of striking design for maximum & uncompromised performance

With a U-shaped & thinned-down bow section the hull works at its best when being driven hard. Inverted bow maximize the length of the waterline and hence the hull speed, reduce the size of the bow wave and has a better overall hydrodynamic drag.

It has solid longitudinal stability for rapid acceleration and minimum pitching movements. The kayak stays level in the water so is able to pick up maximum speed quickly, cleanly and efficiently.

Sharp cut away deck allows for close paddle entries and catches.

Features & fittings

High performance footrest with foot strap & traction pad

The footrest is the key & ultimate outfitting of your kayak. It is the main contact point between your lower body and your boat. It transfers the energy generated from your paddle strokes into the forward movement of your kayak through your foot & leg drive. So it has to be solid, reliable and personalized.

We have an advanced & customizable full footrest system adjustable in angle and depth. It is equipped with adjustable foot strap & covered with EVA traction pad for non-slip and increased comfort.

Ergo seat for optimal hip movement

    The racing seat is configurable in different heights and angle positions for paddling at your most comfortable sitting position while ensuring optimal hip movement as well.

    Alternatively the high back racing seat is for athletes looking for a better grip on the back

    Sprint rudder

      High performance rudder made of carbon with minimum drag ideal for sprint use

      A specific stainless, low profile marathon rudder against weed and impacts is also available.

      Note: rudder shaft (and rudder tube inner) diameter of our racing kayaks is 6mm.

      Bulkhead available

      A bulkhead (partition) is an upright wall within boat separating watertight compartments so that the capsized boat does not sink. A hatch is placed in the rear bulkhead, mainly to let the rear compartment to dry when not in use and to ventilate the stored boat.

      Bulkheads are not installed in flat water racing kayaks as standard, but rear bulkhead can be installed on request if the boat is for club use and will be used by beginners or unstable paddlers.

      All boats are available in multiple constructions. These constructions are set up to meet the needs of each segment of the flat water racing market, from club use to private boats of top-ranking athletes.

      More about constructions

      Constructions differ in the materials and technologies used during the manufacturing process. These determine the stiffness and the interior appearance of the boat. In practice, an upper construction results a stiffer & more eye-catching boat.

      Besides, the standard and available fittings may be also different in some constructions. These are listed at the "Fittings" section of this article.

      Tips & more about the available colours

      Think carefully about choosing black and dark colours!

      Such boats warm up more & they become matt very soon. Scratches and limescale are also much more visible on these surfaces.

      Less is more:

      We recommend picking only two, maximum three colours for a coherent boat design.

      More is more:

      (Because of the overlapping gelcoat layers) more colours results in more weight.

      Availability of clear (transparent) surfaces:

      Clear carbon seat & cockpit rim are available in EXTRA & ULTRA constructions.

      Clear carbon hull and/or deck (parts) are available in EXTRA & ULTRA constructions.
      (Bow & stern of the clear carbon boat are black gradient)

      Clear carbon-kevlar hull is available in SUPER construction.
      (Bow & stern of the clear carbon-kevlar boat hulls are colored)

      RAL colors CANNOT be displayed entirely proper on computer screens. The color depends on your monitor and printer. Therefore the exact shade of the product may be different than seen here! Please use these color samples as a reference only! We recommend you to see a physical and official RAL color guide to be sure of the correct color.
