P&Hs own corelite material combines a foam core with a tough outer layer to save weight and increase the stiffness of the hull creating lightweight, durable kayak that offers you the very best in plastic sea kayak construction. The corelite range is ideal for new comers to sea kayaking or those looking to take their kayak into rock gardens or surf.
Glass fibre - Diolen
Our most widely requested option balances weight, stiffness and durability. It offers superb impact resistance and can be easily repaired if damaged. The deck is also glass fibre with added reinforcement around the cockpit (for deep water rescues) and footrest mountings. It offers superb resistance to impact, abrasion, puncture and tearing. Our toughest, stiffest and most durable construction suitable for the most challenging expeditions or hardest working coaches.
Our Kevlar carbon hull construction is lighter and more resistant to puncture than our diolen glass fibre construction. This construction adds kevlar Carbon to the hull and combines glass fibre and kevlar carbon the deck making the finished product around (3lbs/1.5kg) few kilos lighter than a glass fibre - diolen kayak. A great combination of lightweight, strength and rigidity.
Lightweight Kevlar Carbon
Using even less glass and replacing it with more kevlar Carbon this is the ultimate in lightweight hull constructions. Saving approx. 4.5lbs/2kg over glass diolen - Some durability and stiffness is lost compared to a heavier construction due to the reduction in materials used and we recommend a keel strip is used with this option.
Both the kevlar carbon constructions can be made with a clear gel coat on the hull, allowing you to see the kevlar carbon underneath. This option shaves around 2lbs (2 LBS/3/4 KG) Depending on model. off a kevlar Carbon or Lightweight Kevlar Carbon construction and is perfect for those looking for a really light kayak. Some durability and stiffness is lost compared to a heavier construction due to the reduction in materials used and we recommend a keel strip is used with this option.
