CONTOUR 490

A fast tracking tandem touring kayak perfect for the lakes and rivers

Contour 490 Yellow Top 02-(
 
The Contour 490 is a fast tracking  tandem touring kayak for any kayaker looking to double up by bringing a friend or family member along for the ride.

The outstanding design of the longest of the Contour range allows you to retain the smooth, effortless performance and stability of the other kayaks but adds the extra speed that comes with a slightly longer hull and of course another paddler. It has been designed with long distance cruising and expeditions in mind and allows you to explore the secrets and wonders that the great lakes and rivers of the world have to offer.

Additional features include dual channel tracking on the hull which provides improved hydrodynamics and smoother performance through the water. Lots of storage area in the bow and stern and even placement on your deck for maps, GPS and guide books. A great kayak for rivers and sheltered waters or even that long scenic overnight excursion.

A rudder as standard plus plenty of storage space and stability give this kayak everything you need.

NOTE - as at October 2014 all hatch covers on all of the Contour range are fitted as standard with GREY hatch covers
