A lively, responsive touring kayak, the Elias Series takes its design cues the popular women’s specific Eliza kayak, bringing a slightly longer and larger hull model to market that appeals to a broad variety of paddlers. The Elias offers a performance fit cockpit that enables paddlers to 'grip' the boat for edging and lean turning while still maintaining an easy feel for the more casual paddler. Good primary stability and excellent secondary stability combine with the platform's proven low and balanced windage design to give the Elias an assuring, confident ride in even the most challenging conditions.
The Manitou 130 R combines the maneuverability and tracking that avid paddlers need with the stability and comfort a newcomer will appreciate. A compact, stable hull design combined with an integral keel makes the Manitou 130 R an extremely versatile kayak. The high volume bow offers generous storage and affords a drier ride in rough water. Equally at home on a lake or rough coastline, this well-rounded kayak is perfect for beginning, intermediate and even advanced paddlers.
Our popular women's specific Eliza composite kayak is now available with a rudder. Ideal for day tripping, the fifteen foot long Eliza with rudder is perfect for female paddlers of all skill levels.
