The Aries takes the ground-breaking Delphin design and refines it for production in advanced composite material systems by our highly skilled and experienced craftsmen, making it truly come alive in the surf, as well as on short to mid-length expeditions.
A planing hull is highly manoeuvrable, reassuringly stable, and ideal for use in the surf, where the high volume bow with pronounced rocker in combination with a set-back cockpit position prevents the Aries from purling and allows you to ride the wave all the way in to shore.
- Planing Hull
Confidence inspiring stability, and unparalleled performance in the surf.
- High Volume, Rockered Bow
Prevents purling and punches through the surf on the way back out.
- Squared-Off Stern
Gives the longest waterline for good speed and tracking.
- Low Back Deck and Cockpit Rim
Easy to roll or re-enter when the wave wins.
- Large Bow and Stern Hatch
Ample storage for mid length expeditions.
- Rear Day Hatch
For storing safety kit and other essentials close to hand.
- Deck Reinforcement as Standard
To withstand the forces exerted by a kayak sail mast foot.
- Hard Chines at the Bow
Pick up quickly on a wave for control right from the start.
- Rear Weighting
Keeps the bow light for high manoeuvrability and great balance on a wave.
- Unparalleled Manoeuvrability
The combination of a planing hull and steep bow rocker help you get out of those sticky situations like crossing fast flowing tidal races.
- Hydrofoil Skeg
Aids tracking when paddling across wind/current.
- Mini Hatch
Placed directly in front of the paddler for quick access to essential gear on the move.
