Sleek, Attractive, for high performance design. Multi chine design for strength, shape, and speed. Multi day touring, training, large bodies of water, coastal paddling, shallow water and up current paddling. Lightweight


If you’re looking for a speedy escape into nature and a boat that will turn heads on a Sunday paddle then you will want one of the new Solace “Extreme” series kayaks. The "EX" stands for “EXTREME”, and designer Don Moore has pulled out all the stops to blend just the right lengths, beams and shapes to yield three truly high performance touring kayaks. Just add water to these floating rockets and you will be amazed at the smooth acceleration, outstanding stability, excellent tracking, and carrying capacity of these unique craft. Customers have described them as the worlds most beautiful kayaks. The flared bow, and v-shaped fore decks are designed to shed water and keep you dry. The Solace EX series have a lower aft deck for ease of rolling and their vertical stern increases the waterline length. This combination gives the Solace EX series a very unique profile. Experienced paddlers claim that comfort plays a major role in the performance of any touring kayak. With this in mind, Don Moore has designed the upswept fore deck to provide more leg and foot room.
