The Convertible Kayak
Two kayaks in one. Here is a kayak that can function as both a conventional sit inside or an open cockpit sit on top. Have fun in the sun and surf with the added benefit of the ease of use of the very popular sit-on-top configuration without the need to have two kayaks. The Skua ARX is the same high performance Skua hull and practical deck layout with the convertible seating and optional venturi drains in the footwells.
In place of the standard sit inside cockpit there is a fully moulded, extremely comfortable seat well, complete with central rudder control, which offers summer fun in the open, with the ease of use of a sit-on-top. For the winter, or rough water, a removable deck coaming can simply be fastened in place with six machine screws. This takes a spray deck to provide the comfort and protection from the elements of a sit inside. The Skua ARX offers you the best of both worlds without sacrificing the performance of the legendary Skua.
The carrying capacity for touring is the same as the standard Skua and the twin bulkhead arrangement to compartmentalise the very effectively sealed touring hatches are retained. The deep seat provides proper back support and plenty of lateral support for adequate bracing. The rudder pedals supply firm foot bracing as the rudder is toe controlled and the range of adjustment covers a wide range of different sized paddlers from children through to very tall and broad adults. The detachable cockpit coaming quickly transfers the sit-on-top kayak into a fully decked kayak that is ideal for touring, training and adventure racing at a very affordable price.
The specifications and performance figures are identical to the Skua.
Standard colours are white hull and white deck with red trim. Please contact us for other colour combinations.
The Skua ARX, like the standard Skua, comes complete with a cockpit cover and spray skirt included.
