Manta-r - the "carving" kayak:
The Manta-r is the development of Ex-Vice World Champion Ed Wolffhardt. The patented design of the boat allows the canoeist to obtain a better curve acceleration.
 
Advantages:
  • more draught
  • achieving a clear curve (carving radius)
  • less lateral drift
  • uses the force of currents
  • better acceleration
 
The kayak was developed in collaboration with MICADO who contributed their know-how in the fields of engineering, simulation, and prototyping.
