The Libra XT has all the features you need for extensive touring or family outings. The middle cockpit can accommodate a child, or carry a raft of expedition gear for the most luxurious adventure. Long and deep, the Libra XT always gives a comfortable ride. The watertight bow and stern compartments, along with the self-contained middle compartment, offer tremendous capacity. The Libra XT's efficient hull design is easy to paddle and provides ample stability. The XT has proven itself with many tour operators where safety, seaworthiness, comfort, carrying capacity and quality construction are essential. The Libra XT comes equipped with two mid-bulkheads in addition to the bow and stern bulkheads, enclosing the center cockpit area. If you plan to take your family out on the water the XT gives you room, safety features and quality you can have confidence in.
Fish Form: Widest ahead of the cockpit, Fish form kayaks have a more blunt entry but will have a more slender exit through the water. The bows typically have more flare and are usually more buoyant than others. This enables our shorter boats to be excellent surf zone kayaks. Longer kayaks benefit from this feature in large seas.
Soft Chine: A smooth transition from the bottom of the hull to the sides. Soft chines give smooth edging at unlimited angles. The majority of kayaks that we build have a soft chine.
Shallow V: The “V” shape improves tracking, has a lively feel and delivers very comfortable stability.
Touring Cockpit: Touring cockpits are somewhat small to help resist imploding of the spray skirt if hit by a large wave in rough water. They include built-in thigh braces on the cockpit rim to maximize control when edging and rolling. They range from 29” to 35” long, depending on the model.
