Wisper is the most recent addition to our line of folding kayaks.
The Wisper has elegant flowing lines with upswept bow and stern. It may
be described as a cross between our popular Kahuna models and our Greenland
design Khatsalano. The Wisper is similar in weight to the Kahuna, yet longer
and narrower. Gear storage volume is about the same. It is nimble, with
a fast cruising speed, and carves turns easily with a lean. Equipped with
cockpit bracing bars, it has a solid fit for medium and smaller paddlers.
Kayak in a pack, front and back views
Two weights of skin are offered on the Wisper.
For the paddler who is able to take care when approaching rugged terrain,
or only doing light day trips, choose the lighter weight skin. The light
weight deck and hull fabric are approximately 20% lighter than the standard
weight Duratek and Polytech. The hull is reinforced with the standard solid
urethane strips along the keel and chines.
For those doing heartier paddling trips, travelling with a well-loaded
kayak, the standard weight skin will be the correct choice.
A strap-on skeg
is standard as it is not possible to mount a rudder. The seat is
light-weight with inflatable air back and bottom. A comfortable
foot bracing platform replaces individual foot braces. A medium
stern hatch is standard. The built in coaming system incorporates
thigh bracing bars for a firm fit. If you wish to pack the kayak
for multi-day camping trips, a bow hatch is an option.
Optional bow 20 x 11cm (8 x 4.5")
Medium stern 33 x 20cm (13 x 8")
The Wisper XP can be ordered with the standard (small cockpit) or a large cockpit (similar in size to the K1 and Big Kahuna kayaks).
