Flat water racer with stability boost

K1 Falcon Q-Master

ML, XL sizes

A more stable still top performance K1 model with classic V-shape hull available in two sizes

A modern and versatile K1 with sleek lines but wider beam and slightly rounded center section designed to reduce wobble giving a welcome stability boost. Very popular for paddlers with a flat water racing background. Using this kayak they can feel the freedom to paddle with comfort, confidence and power again without significantly reducing the speed. The model is also a great intermediate choice for paddlers looking to progress to today’s top racer K1s - or for a club with many such paddlers.

The boat is both constructed and equipped just like a regular racing K1, but a low 2-pin seat for maximum stability is also available to choose.

With same specifications the Falcon Q-Master is also available in a higher (XL) volume for the heavier paddler between 85 and 110 kg.

In terms of both stability and top speed the Falcon Q-Master resembles the top racing K1's from the late 1980's.

To let us meet the preferences of a wide range of paddlers we offer multiple constructions to choose from. These constructions are set up in line with the requirements of each segment of the flatwater racing market - from youth paddlers to top-ranking athletes, from local clubs to federations - while providing the most favourable quality and price conditions for that specific group of users.

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.
