Current Designs Solstice GTS
The Solstice GTS is for the paddler who wants a North American style kayak in a highly efficient package.
Re-designed for 2010, we added foot room, improved the hull shape, and upgraded the deck fittings with a new hatch buckle system. Along with the new hidden rudder lines the GTS is one snazzy looking boat.
The cockpit has also been widened slightly to a keyhole shape to make it easier to enter and exit while still staying true to its sporty fit. Great for water big and small, and trips long and short anywhere on the planet.
The Solstice GTS has excellent acceleration, is highly efficient and can hold plenty of gear in its ample storage hatches.

Perfect for small-framed or experienced paddlers, the Current Designs Solstice GTS kayak with rudder provides an exquisite experience in the water. Incredibly light, strong and stiff, the Solstice GTS kayak with rudder features a superbly crafted fiberglass hull. Vacuum-bagged fiberglass layup eliminates excess resin, which improves strength and reduces weight to 52 lbs. Fish-form construction enhances overall flotation and efficiency in the surf zone. Shallow-V hull enhances tracking and offers friendly stability and a lively feel in the water, and low decks minimize wind resistance. Keyhole-shaped cockpit provides a responsive fit, yet it's still easy to get into. Built-in thighbraces on the underside of the rim maximize control when edging and rolling. Seat back with foam backpad creates cushy comfort during long hours on the water. Cockpit-deployable rudder enhances tracking in rough weather; use the footbraces to direct the rudder and steer the kayak. Pivoting footbraces work like a gas pedal and offer easy, intuitive control of the rudder. Footbraces are adjustable from kayak interior even while on water. Internal rudder cable routing creates a smooth look to kayak. Hatches provide ample storage for an extended trip and feature easy-to-use compression hatch covers. Compression hatch covers sit flush with the deck and feature a rubber gasket that creates a watertight seal when tightened with cam straps. Hatch covers also increase rigidity of deck, a definite plus during rescues or when paddling in rough water. Bow, stern and center bungee deck rigging securely store extra gear on top. Toggled carry handles ease transport of the 52 lb. Current Designs Solstice GTS kayak with rudder to the water.
