Adrien and Pierre-Louis
Follow them on their kayak expedition in Norway from Bergen to the North Cape.
An elegant, fast and robust kayak for light and middle-weight paddlers. Safe forward gliding or fast changes in direction by using the boat’s edges is easily possible. The PriLite Marlin LV is of course equipped with our comfortable Tour seat-system, covers made from ABS and slide-footrest.
Especially eye-catching effect of the green, orange or white metallic surface!
Our PriLite-material offers his advantages by its low weight, combined with an enormous stability and resistance as well as its unique look!
For PriLite boats, the ABS-combination plates, sealed with UV-resistant perspex, are pulled into the hot moulds, which have a temperature of approximately 80 degrees, in a computerized process, using heat and vacuum. The upper and lower parts of the boat are inseparably joined together by a double-sided U-profile. This profile additionally strengthens the sides of the kayak against impact. The mounting of deck mountings and interior fittings are thoroughly done by hand, as on all Prijon boats. Advantages: PriLite boats are approx. 20% lighter than comparable kayaks made of HTP. At the same time there is a clear advantage regarding stability compared to GFK or Carbon/Aramide.
Repairs/Care: Supeficial scratches can be polished off with a special XERAPOL paste, available in specialized shops. Larger repairs are made with Epoxi. The inside of the boat should not be permanently exposed to sun (store upside down!).
