Are you ready to take your skills to the next level? The Delta Sixteen kayak offers a finely tuned hull design and well-placed storage, perfect for that tour you've been dreaming about. Sweet! Thermoformed ABS plastic hull material is stiff and light like traditional composite kayaks and offers similar looks, but costs considerably less. A long waterline, soft chine and concave sidewall create a kayak that instantly responds to your intentions. Cockpit is 2 in. narrower than other Delta models, resulting in a close-fitting, performance fit and feel. Seat is adjustable 4 in. forward and backward even while paddling so the trim of the kayak can be adjusted on the move. Neoprene-padded seat and adjustable backband offer comfort and support on long trips; neoprene padding on thigh bracing improves comfort and control. Cockpit-adjustable footbraces fit most paddlers and integrated thigh braces increase overall comfort. Cockpit-deployable skeg enhances tracking in rough water and windy conditions. 4 storage areas provide ample space for every accoutrement: 2 main dry storage areas and 2 day hatches are placed within easy reach. Day hatches feature specially sized pods glued to underside of deck. Redesigned hatch covers create a watertight seal with a specially designed gasket that envelops the rim of the hatch; secures with 4-1/2 turns. Bungee deck rigging at bow and stern retains extra gear; safety straps aft of cockpit and nylon perimeter lines aid in paddle float self-rescue. Ergonomic, rubber grab handles are easy on your hands for transport to and from the water.
