Velox Avenger

A lightweight stable kayak that capable of river kayak racing or just cruising on the river. Lighter than plastic kayaks making it easy to lift on the car.  This is a reworking of the Avenger, which was the K1 derivative of the Ascent K2. The cockpit has been moved back to get it to glide better, and the front has been trimmed down to make it quicker through the water – in much the the same way that the Velox Ascent was upgraded.

It is brilliant for the bigger paddler as there is plenty of foot room and cockpit space. It is well suited to beginners where stability breeds confidence on rivers. At the same time it is good option for intermediate paddlers keen to test themselves in bigger rivers like the Umko or the Bushman’s or Lowveld Croc.
