What material is CrossMax, Crosslight, Ultralight and Composite?
Hello and thanks for the
question about our high quality plastic or composite materials. Here is a brief explanation of each:
Our best quality High Density
Poly Ethylene (HDPE) rotomolded plastic provides the perfect
balance between stiffness, weight, durability and quality of finish at our
most affordable price.
Combining the advantages of
rotomolded and composite (fiberglass/Kevlar/carbon) materials, the result
is stiffer, faster, up to 25% lighter boat in ABS with a fantastic shiny
finish. It is significantly more affordable and durable than a composite
This ultralight material is similar to
Cross-Light ABS construction with an emphasis on weight reduction. This
gives it an additional 15-25% weight savings vs our crosslight
construction, which makes these the lightest kayaks in their category, bar
Our lightest weight material in
either fiberglass or Kevlar cloth is our fastest and most efficient boat.
Being hand built, results in a higher price and although a little less
durable than plastic boats, they can be repaired more easily.
All our plastic materials have high UV resistance in them and have some of the smoothest and shiniest finishes on the market for a beautiful look and the best performance.
