The Latitude is a narrow kayak that is designed for the tall thin paddler. It has an extended keyhole for longer legs. It has extended knee bumps so the lighter paddler can move the seat forwards or the taller paddler has enough room for his or her knees. The kayak is similar to the Pilgrim Expedition except it has an additional 50mm (2") longer stern. This extra volume has been added immediately behind the cockpit to reduce the amount that the stern of the kayak squats down when being paddled forwards. The kayak has a low, rear deck for easy rolling, a white water cockpit that gives excellent grip, control and allows quick exit if need be.
As with all NDK kayaks sloping bulkhead behind the seat, allows the kayak to be emptied by lifting only the bow, no x-rescue is necessary. The kayak is fitted with our new High performance glass seat that is higher and can be adjusted forwards and backwards. Fitted hip pads with the option of glass thigh braces help to customize the cockpit area.
