Necky Eliza Sea Touring Kayak w/ Rudder - Necky's new Eliza is designed specifically for women. The culmination of input from women paddlers of varying skill levels, it feels so good you may never want to get out. The chine and rock profile combine with a slight V-hull for excellent glide and tracking. The stability will reassure the novice, while more advanced paddlers will appreciate the Eliza's maneuverability on edge. The cockpit is wider and shorter, combining with the low rear deck for unrestricted rolling and bracing. Made of water-resistant durable molded foam, the seat is designed specifically to reduce pressure on your sciatic nerve. By actually improving blood, you'll be able to paddle longer distances without your feet and legs falling asleep. Adjustable backband, thigh braces and foot pedals allow you to further customize the fit.

Whether you want to keep up with the boys or just plain leave them behind, the Eliza is ready when you are.
Designed by women for women, the Necky® Eliza day touring kayak empowers amateur to seasoned female kayakers to paddle farther more efficiently. With input from women coast to coast, Eliza is sized with the small to medium build woman in mind, for unmatched comfort and an ergonomic fit. Hull shape is optimized for near effortless paddling and gliding efficiency and provides confidence for maneuvering through wind and waves. Specially-designed cockpit is wider and shorter than standard touring boats with a lower deck height to easily accommodate the female torso. Shorter cockpit also makes it easier for women to attach and detach a spray skirt. Crafted from durable superlinear polyethylene for long-lasting service, easy care and reliable performance. Overall weight is just under 50 pounds making the Eliza much easier to manage both in and out of the water. Cockpit-deployable tracking rudder assists with steering via footpeg control; rubber rudder catcher and bungee secure rudder during transport. Adjustable, padded backband with forward-mounted seat adjustments; soft foam seat pad and adjustable foam thigh braces deliver a women's specific fit. Fully bulkheaded bow and stern hatches with small-hand friendly Cross Lock hatch covers provide generous dry cargo storage for day and overnight trips. Neoprene hatch seals under hatch covers help keep gear dry and protected. Bungee deck rigging secures extra gear on decks for easy access.
