Because we know not everyone that loves to paddle is 6 foot tall and less than 225lbs, we offer the Solstice GT Titan, a comfortable performance touring kayak for big and tall paddlers. Read more
The Solstice family of kayaks has long been the pride of the Current Designs Performance Touring Kayak fleet. Utilizing the GT hull design, the Solstice GT Titan deck is fuller throughout allowing for long legs and big feet (size 14+). The oversized keyhole cockpit greatly aids in entry and exit. The Solstice GT Titan is a steady cruiser that will keep pace with any boat on the water.
Current Design's vacuum-bagged fiberglass laminate is a notch above most other fiberglass products on the market. Vacuum-bagging allows Current Designs to select and place reinforcing materials to provide the optimal strength and stiffness properties without adding unnecessary weight. The result is a superbly crafted composite kayak that's impeccably finished inside and out.
Fish Form: Widest ahead of the cockpit, Fish form kayaks have a more blunt entry but will have a more slender exit through the water. The bows typically have more flare and are usually more buoyant than others. This enables shorter boats to be excellent surf zone kayaks. Longer kayaks benefit from this feature in large seas.
Touring Cockpit: Touring cockpits are somewhat small to help resist imploding of the spray skirt if hit by a large wave in rough water. They include built-in thigh braces on the cockpit rim to maximize control when edging and rolling. They range from 29” to 35” long, depending on the model.
Soft Chine: A smooth transition from the bottom of the hull to the sides. Soft chines give smooth edging at unlimited angles. The majority of kayaks that we build have a soft chine.
Shallow Arch (Flat"ish" Bottom): These kayaks have good initial stability and are highly maneuverable.
