Representing the future of sea kayaks, the TARAN is a revolutionary design with a world-class resume.

The Taran brings a radical new look to the world of sea kayaking; it is fast and sleek and has friendly handling characteristics that will appeal to fitness and distance paddlers alike.  The Taran 16 is slightly shorter than the Taran 18 and fits in your garage better.

Designed for the intermediate to advanced paddler, the Taran steps away from the traditional British sea kayak model to yield a high performance craft with surprising levels of maneuverability and stability. The Taran 16 is almost as fast as its bigger brother and has an easy and predictable handling in even the most demanding conditions. It is still large enough to provide ample storage for weeklong camping trips or multi-week expeditions.
