The Gladiator meets the needs of larger paddlers searching for their first kayak, or who are looking for a stable, forgiving boat.
This kayak was designed for those who weigh between 80 & 120kg. Larger paddlers often struggle to get into a smaller cockpit, so the Gladiator has a larger cockpit than most multisport kayaks. Also assisting larger paddlers is its secondary stability. This inspires confidence when paddling through wave trains and in boily water.
- Large cockpit & seat
- Wider hull with a flat cross-section for stability
- Adjustable Ozo foot pedals
- Carbon or Carbon / Kevlar
Weight: Fibreglass 14.5kg Composite 12kg
The deck can be a single colour or a two colour fade. Fibreglass kayaks have a white hull, while composite kayaks have a 'bare' hull so you can show off the carbon or carbon/ kevlar construction.
We will have a demo Gladiator available before too long that you can try out.
Ruahine Kayaks are made to order. We will contact you to discuss construction options and colour choices.
