Sea Eagle RazorLite Kayaks – World First Manufacture
With the Sea Eagle RazorLite series you can say farewell to cumbersome, heavy, plastic kayaks that can be a pain to transport – these modern inflatable kayaks are lightweight, easy to handle and pack down to fit in the trunk of your vehicle.
These are the World’s First All Drop Stitch inflatable kayaks with a razor-sharp, tapered, hard-nose bow and stern, combined with a fully constructed Drop Stitch technology hull enabling them to cut through waves cleaner, straighter and sharper than any other kayak on the market enabling paddling speeds up to 6 mph.
As a result of its high-performance design and capabilities, the Sea Eagle RazorLite kayaks are highly recommended for intermediate and more experienced paddlers.
Features of Sea Eagle 473rl RazorLite Inflatable Kayak
Straight Hull Design
The straight hull design provides the maximum straight hull waterline length. This feature combined with the very narrow kayak width (25″ at the waterline) allows the RazorLite to paddle as fast as any rigid kayak. The Bow and stern molds are made of durable plastic and cut through the wind, waves, current, and water like a sharp edge straight razor on a clean close shave. With superior length to width ratio, razor sharp bow entry, straight line planing surface and a precision razor sharp stern exit at the rear these inflatable kayaks are in a performance league of their own.
Unique Bow and Stern Design and Tapered Side Walls
The rigid bow and stern molds create the worlds very first speed entry system that leads into a double concave and then opens into a flat planing surface. The double concave design at bow allows pockets of air to enter in between the hull and the water creating lift while reducing friction and drag. The double concave at stern creates a super clean exit. The Tapered Drop Stitch Side Walls provide a rigid chine at the waterline and secondary buoyancy and stability. These features combine to enable the Sea Eagle RazorLite to glide quickly and effortlessly through the water.
Bow and Stern Molds on the 473rl
The rigid bow and stern molds create a razor sharp speed entry and exit system. The bow mold cuts through the water effortlessly at a high velocity. The water then meets the carefully designed Tapered Side Walls creating lift while reducing friction and drag, then exits just as fast as it entered at the stern mold leaving little to no wake behind.
