One of the first things you will notice on this kayak is its elegant lines. Expedition LV´s designs is made from modern swedeform, the widest point of the kayak is in the back of the cockpit. This design makes paddling forward more comfortable and efficient because you can put the paddle more close to your body. Expedition kayak has a long waterline therefore it is fast and stable. If you are paddling with wind and waves you feel surprised how easily you can handle the conditions with this kayak.
Expedition LV has four dry hatches, two bigger and two smaller. In big dry compartments you can fit in gear for a daily picnic or even for a week´s expedition. Smaller day hatches are used for storing more necessary gear on water (for example: food, drinks, extra jacket, gloves, etc.). Smallest day hatch is made from soft and durable neoprene and it is meant for storing your mobile phone, GPS, sunglasses, etc.
In the back and front of the kayak deck there are rubber lines, which are meant for holding gear: drinking water, spare paddle, sleeping mat, etc.
