The Solstice GT is the flag ship of our touring kayak fleet and the most popular composite kayak ever made. Recently redesigned with increased foot room and improved hull shape. The new internal rudder line system and hatch straps give the deck a clean appeal. The updated hull design delivers a predictable feel while slicing through the water. Like all Solstices, the GT has outstanding acceleration glide and tracking. The ample volume storage hatches have enough room for excursions on the biggest waters of the world.
- 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: These have good initial stability and are highly maneuverable.
- 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 our shorter boats to be excellent surf zone kayaks. Longer kayaks benefit from this feature in large seas.
