The Spade Black Jack is a modern white water kayak that perfectly bridges the gap between river runner and creek boat. High volume and high rocker give him the dry line ability and buoyancy that a full on creek boat needs. Flat hull and pronounced rails deliver dynamic reactivity even on mellower waters. With 285liters of volume the Jack is built for paddlers between 60 and 85kg body weight. Without edging it runs independently from cross currents, but presents a dynamic edge performance in modest lean angles. Because we limited the width of the hull the Jack is also predictable in shallower waters. The ends of the boat seem slicy, but are high volume due to their width. That allows the paddler to turn the boat effortlessly with only a sweep stroke, paddle precise lines in big volume but also stay high and dry over steep drops. Because we targeted the Jack to smaller size paddlers and women, a low weight was a necessity. We shook everything off that looked like excess and came up with a reduced design that represents the white water Zeitgeist of the 21st century. No matter if you are beginner, intermediate or expert, our new kayak is your "Jack of all Trades“.
Our fully integrated seat-rail-tower combo enables ergonomic seating ever over long periods on the water. The tower supports the cockpit area in pinned situations and over large drops. It also can be used as an emergency step for a safe exit in critical situations.
