New to the Sea Kayaking UK line up - the exciting new Echo is here! A fantastic kayak for the smaller paddler.  The Echo will replace the Pilgrim and the Pilgrim Expedition cut down versions. 

The Echo is a kayak designed for the small person or as a youth sea kayak. For its size its fast and maneuverable, it has a keyhole cockpit and a low deck to minimize the effect of wind.  The kayak rolls well and is fast for its length.

SEMI SOFT CHINED KAYAKS

Although the kayaks have been designed with raise so they can easily be edged they do have a softer curve between the hull and rail. This help in moving water and waves. A hard edge would be less friendly and make the kayak a little harder to control.

The Echo, Pilgrim, Pilgrim Expedition and the Latitude are all the same width. The main difference between the kayaks is a slight straightening of the rocker line as the kayaks get longer. If we simply extended the kayak without changing the rocker line we would end up with a slower banana shaped kayak.

If you are in control of the kayak, you can edge and turn easily. As you edge you introduce more of the kayak rail and automatically change the wetted area of the kayak. This is why we also change the volume, hull profile and rocker lines when designing maneuverable kayaks. It’s NOT just rocker line.

The cockpit area of the Echo has also been taken ½” (14mm) further forward to stop the kayak being blown down wind with the smaller paddler. In addition, some volume has also been taken out of the bow as lighter paddlers need less volume so the kayaks sits better in the water. This will give you far more control.

All the above have knee bumps and the best way of customizing is to raise the seat so the knee bumps can be utilized. Seats can be raised by ½” (14mm) or 1” (25mm). There is no need to raise the seat higher than an 1” (25mm).

ALL THE ABOVE ARE FOR THE SMALLER PADDLER & ALL BELONG TO THE PILGRIM FAMILY
