Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Speedy and sleek, the Current Designs Kestrel 140 Roto kayak with rudder is ready for day-touring fun. 14 ft. length enhances speed, tracking and stability when covering distance on relatively calm waters. Shallow-V hull enhances tracking and offers friendly stability and a lively feel in the water. Swede-form construction enhances speed and maneuverability, and it allows bow to punch through waves instead of riding up and over them. Rotomolded polyethylene construction offers performance, responsiveness and rugged durability. Roomy cockpit makes it easy for large paddlers to enter kayak, and sliding foot pegs adjust the fit for multiple paddlers. Padding along coaming of cockpit increases comfort for thighs and knees. Seat creates a natural, comfortable paddling position by tilting the entire seat pan up and away from cockpit floor. Use the lever-lock knob-it's similar to a quick-release fork on a bike wheel-to set the seat pan to the desired height. Locking mechanism prevents both side-to-side and up-and-down motion. To prevent numbness, seat pan features a contoured space for lower vertebrae and is covered with plush, nonabsorbent, very thick padding. Seat back moves up and down and back and forth, and it articulates to move with your paddling motion. Cockpit-deployable rudder enhances tracking in rough weather; use the foot pegs to direct the rudder and steer the kayak. Rear hatch provides enough storage for an overnight trip and features an easy-to-use, rubberized hatch cover. Bow hatch features rubberized cover and an additional hard cover with straps to protect contents from splashes. Bulkheaded bow and stern hatches provide generous dry cargo storage during extended voyages and enhance flotation when hatches are sealed. Generous bungee rigging allows you to keep touring accessories with easy reach. Paddle keeper frees up hands when needed.
