New Products @ PADDLEexpo 2014 – Flying Squirrel (LiquidLogic)
LiquidLogic introduces their latest creek boat/ river runner, the Flying Squirrell. Best described by those who tested it already as a mix between the Remix and the Jeffe.
Manufacturers description: This is the kayak that you, the paddlers, asked for through our “Automatic For The People” drive. We asked what boat design people wanted to see us create and the overwhelming answer was loud and clear: “ Make a Remix with more rocker and lots of deck volume.” We did it, and the result is a creek boat that’s as comfortable running big volume as it is in the steeps.
We started the design with the extreme race-winning speed of the Remix Series, added more rocker in the bow to get up and over obstructions, then we packed a bunch more volume throughout the deck to shed water in drops and punch through big rapids. That extra volume also lends itself to carrying the load for multi-day trips.
Whether you are pushing the top end of the sport or hoping to make that one line a little more smooth we think the Flying Squirrel will be the boat for you.
Colours: Road Cone Orange, Lime Green, Blue Ice Marble, Black Ops Green Hornet.
