About the Sea Eagle Kayaks Series
Sea Eagle FastTrack™ Kayaks are extremely stable, yet very quick and ultra light! This unique combination of stability and speed make these kayaks an ideal choice for both young,and old. They feature large side tubes and state of the art “NeedleKnife” rigid molds at both the front and back With their high pressure drop-stitch keel you achieve cleaner entry and exit through current, wind, waves and water. These features ensures that the 465ft paddles faster and easier with greater glide in a wide variety of open water conditions.
A great feature is the fact that Sea Eagle FastTrack™ kayaks are far lighter than most all-rigid kayaks. Rigid kayaks can weigh 65-70 lbs whilst the Sea Eagle FastTracks™ weigh just 35 & 44 lbs respectively. This makes handling them a dream by comparison. Obviously a major plus is the fact that FastTracks™ are inflatable they can be packed into a bag that’s a mere fraction of their size!
Key Features of Sea Eagle 465ft Inflatable Kayak
Sleek Asymmetrical Shape
The FastTrack’s sleek asymmetrical shape is tapered and narrow at the bow whilst being broader at the stern, allowing it to punch through waves faster and easier.
Sea Eagle’s Patented NeedleKnife™ Rigid Inflatable Keel
The special external drop stitch construction of the inflatable keel allows the FastTrack™ to paddle far faster and straighter than other inflatable kayaks. The keel features sharp bow and stern molds that cut through wind, waves and current for a super fast, super clean entry and exit. The inflatable bow keel also provides the buoyancy and lift necessary to ride over waves and further improve speed.
Super Rigid Drop Stitch Floor On Top Of Outside Floor
The unique modular design of the Sea Eagle FastTrack™ features a super rigid, high pressure, drop stitch floor that sits on top of an outside floor. This has several advantages. The high pressure DS floor provides great rigidity and rigid hull like performance. The reinforced outside fabric floor provides a double layer of added protection where it’s most needed. The modular design allows the DS floor to be easily removed for quick and thorough cleaning.
Large Removable Rear Center Skeg
A nice feature of these FastTrack kayaks is that the skeg can be removed with the FastTrack™ inflated or deflated. Simply remove it for whitewater and skinny water adventures (eliminating it as an obstruction)and replace it for flat water to reduce yawing (swinging to the right or left). This increases track-ability during long flat-water touring, maximizing efficiency.
