Z 1

The Z 1 slalom kayak was designed by Australian champion and Olympic kayak representative John Wilkie. The Z 1 is surprisingly fast in a straight line. It spins flat or pivots with ease. What I love about the kayak is the way the nose can be dragged with a bow draw stroke. It does it all and is a kayak that does what you tell it and not one that you have to learn how to paddle it.
