Introducing the Powerslide - A 10' long machine with slalom lineage, half-slice chops, and creative, stylish river running on its mind.
By combining the speed and maneuverability of modern slalom kayaks with a playful planing hull and modern bow rocker we’ve created a boat that will give you the power to redefine how you paddle rivers.
The Powerslide’s slalom-influenced stern, with its low-rocker profile propels you downstream, upstream and through ferries and banks eddy turns at high speed. Subtle kick rocker just behind the seat delivers the ability to carve through S turns and across currents to slide onto glassy, catch-on-the-fly waves with ease. That’s where the chines kick in with a silky, carving, deliciously loose feeling. Like in many modern slalom boats, we’ve cut the stern low for quick easy pivots during downstream maneuvering and for lifting the bow up into tall stern stalls and splats.
Through the middle, we narrowed the Powerslide to help maintain glide through the water. That slenderness gives the cockpit a comfortable yet performance-snug feel so that your customers can transition from edge to edge easily while carving around. The hull is flat, wide and hard chined, which keeps it up and spinning on the surface of the water. As in all boats these days, we added a generous amount of bow rocker to keep you popping up out of drops and skipping downstream.
