all weight and age categories, better for medium and bigger paddlers
For the type of river:
for difficult terrains with bog waves
Stars on the boat:
The boat is determinated for medium and bigger paddler. The smaller has psychical problem with the front part- they seems to be lost behind the front part. But they said - this is no problem for bigger ones or when you want to go challenging rivers. The big volumed front part doesn´t dive into the waves, it goes over it, almost flies ;-)
But always is possible to cut the boat to suit even smaller paddler (by reasonable dimension) and keep the handling.
First was tested in 7/2012 by experienced athletes in the french Bourg St. Maurice where The World Championship took placed. Athletes were satisfied with larger front part, which cut the waves, no water got on the face of the paddler, they could care only about the direction and paddling.
