CAIPI is a model developed in collaboration with French top athlete Boris Neveu, who won World Championships in 2014 and 2021, also hold European Title from 2015. CAIPI was based on TIK TAK, compared to which the cockpit was moved few centimeters further back, stern deck behind the cockpit was lowered and the widest part of the boat was made longer in order to maintain the volume. The result of these changes formed nearly perfect slalom boat, that is easily maneuverable, holds the course and hardly finds competition in turning abilities. Joe Clark won Olympic Gold in Rio in 2016 paddling CAIPI.

Our highest quality racing boat. This lay-up is for the most demanding slalom racers, addressing not only performance but also appearance. We use a combination of 3 types of foam core, MGS epoxy system and superior vacuum bag technology. A carbon surface is laid over a durable carbon/kevlar combination inside the boat. Although seamless on the outside (except for the bow and stern tips for extra protection), it has double seams on the inside. With this new improved construction, we bring to the market a very strong boat with good resistance to damage.
Weight: 7-8 kg
High performance racing construction. We use vacuum bag technology, a combination of 2 kinds of foam core (Spheretex hull), MGS epoxy system, SGL carbon/aramid fabric, outside-inside aramid seams and hard foam-pillars (Styrodur), Suitable for shallow and rocky rivers.
Weight: 7.5-8.5 kg
Great and economical boat construction, suitable for beginners or advance competitors and kayakers, who train and race on average slalom courses. The deck is made by vacuum technology, the bottom is made without vacuum technologie. The epoxy resin hardens at high temperature.

-deck has 70 % of carbon/aramid fabric and 30 % of glass fabric, vacuum technologie
internal aramid joints of deck and bottom
-the bottom is connected to the deck inside with stiffeners from hard foam (Styrodur)
-the bottom is more resistant to impact from stones compared to Carbolight or Profi construction

The weight of the boat depends on the volume of the boat. E.g. A boat for an 80 kg athlete is a bit more heavy than a boat for a 50 kg athlete. The weight of the boat also depends on the color design. The lightest are boats with a colorless carbon look.
An economical construction suitable for the beginners. The deck is a combination of carbon-aramid and glass fabric (20:80) with no vacuum technology used. The hull consists of carbon-aramid and glass fabric (50:50) with no vacuum technology used. Outside aramid and inside diolen seam, hard foampillars (Styrodur) protect the whole boat.
Weight: K1 8.8-9.5 kg and C1 9.8-10.2 kg.
