Elias™ Polymer

Introducing the Elias, an agile, playful and responsive touring kayak. The Elias takes its design cues from Necky’s popular women’s specific Eliza kayak, with a slightly longer and larger hull designed to appeal to a broad variety of paddlers. At fifteen and a half feet, the Elias is extremely efficient for a kayak its size. Its relatively modest waterline translates into less effort for the paddler at normal cruising speeds, making the Elias significantly more efficient for everyday touring than other kayaks in its class. Also available in a fiberglass and carbon lay up, the Elias is ideal for day touring and weekend excursions.

  • Necky Touring Seat with backband

    Necky Touring Seat

    Made of durable molded foam, this seat is designed specifically to reduce pressure on your sciatic nerve. By actually improving flow around the gluteus maximus, it helps prevent your feet and legs from falling asleep when you're paddling longer distances. For added comfort, the seat does not retain water. It also features an integral tether that attaches to the seat of the boat, keeping it in place when car-topping. The supportive back band provides ample lumbar support, movement and comfort for most body types. Many of our touring kayaks feature this seat.

  • Performance fit cockpit allows paddlers to easily grip the boat for edging
  • Reflective safety perimeter line
  • Rudder with adjustable foot pedals

    Necky Rudder

     
    The aluminum alloy used in our standard rudder can take lots of abuse, bending, and rebending before it breaks. With some care this aluminum rudder should last a lifetime. When deployed you use the foot pedals to guide the kayak to the right or the left. A rudder is used for keeping your boat on track, especially when the weather conditions change. It can help make your journey safer and more enjoyable.
