Boat Book – Fluid Kayaks

Each week, we highlight companies in Canoe & Kayak’s 2010 Boat Book. Today, we look at the 2010 designs of Fluid Kayaks. Stay tuned next week for more from our Boat Book.


NEMESIS

$980, roto-molded polyethelene
Small: L:5’11″; W:23.5″; 44 gal.; 27 lbs.; Medium: L:6’1″; W:25.5″; 51 gal.; 32 lbs.; Large: L:6’5″; W:26.25″; 58 gal.; 34 lbs.
This high-performance play machine has more speed, better carve and more controlled bounce than any other playboat in its class. The unique carving rail/release edge combination ensures an extremely smooth ride on waves. The volume distribution is perfect for launching huge loops but still enables easy cartwheeling and splitwheeling.



COMPOSITE NEMESIS

$1,250, carbon/Kevlar composite
Small: L:5’11″; W:23.5″; 44 gal.; 22 lbs.
Small/Medium: L:6′; W:24.5″; 48 gal.; 23 lbs.; Medium: L:6’1″; W:25.5″; 51 gal.; 23 lbs.
Large: L:6’5″; W:26.25″; 58 gal.; 24 lbs.
Fluid now brings you the Nemesis in composite materials for the ultimate in playboating performance. The composite version is lighter and more rigid, enabling bigger moves, faster speed and crisper performance than any plastic boat can. With the composite Nemesis series, we also introduce a Small/Medium version.



ELEMENT

$995, roto-molded polyethylene
Medium: L:6’7″; W:25.25″; 54 gal.; 31 lbs.
The Element is a pretty unique surfkayak. Apart from the pronounced carving rails that become progressively harder towards the stern, the hull also features release edges, similar to those on a playboat. The Element delivers high speed playboating on ocean and river waves.



COMPOSITE ELEMENT

$1,250, carbon/Kevlar composite
Medium: L:6’7″; W:25.25″; 54 gal.; 23 lbs.;
Large: L:7’6″; W:25.5″; 60.5 gal.; 24 lbs.
The Element is now also available in composite materials for the ultimate in surfboating performance. The composite version is lighter and stiffer, enabling bigger moves, faster speed and crisper performance than any plastic boat can. With the composite Element series, we also introduce a Large version.



FLIRT

$800, roto-molded polyethylene
Small: L:6’0″; W:24.25″; 45 gal.; 27 lbs.
Medium: L:6’3″; W:25.5″; 52 gal.; 32 lbs.
Large: L:6’6″; W:26.75″; 58 gal.; 34 lbs.
The Flirt earned a reputation for being a user friendly yet relatively high performance playboat that is also a great little riverrunner. The Flirt features a large planing hull and symmetrically distributed volume, to make it a great allround playboat on waves and holes.
