Connect Model X
The Connect Model X is one of the best next-generation polo kayaks. Like other Next-Gen polo kayaks, it's characterised by a pointy, easy to manoeuvre bow and a wide, flat, yet voluminous stern. As a result, the Model X shares the handling characteristic that come with it. The stern has a fairly flat profile which makes the boat easy to turn. Since there is plenty of volume in the stern as well, it'll come out of the turn with a nice push in the back, which makes picking up speed a breeze. Furthermore, it enables the boat to stay on top of the water whilst sprinting, yielding excellent top speed. The pointy bow is easy to manoeuvre with subtle movement. It allows easy diving, yet has enough volume to lift your opponent out of the water; blocking made easy!
Both the Premium (±12 kg) and Ultimate (±10 kg) constructions are seamless, making for great durability! The boat does come with a black kevlar strap around the side, this is only to further reduce wear and tear, making sure your Model X looks great for longer! The Connect Model X has an adjustable seat, so you'll be able to tune it to your preference easily. The boat comes equipped with seat, bumpers and footrests. We also include one additional set of bumpers with every Model X!
Fun Fact: The Model X was developed in close collaboration with Christophe and Patrice Belat, who've won the French National Championship and the European Club Championship multiple times with their team Montpellier. Both have also enjoyed many successes such as European and World Championships with the French National team. If that doesn't give confidence that the Model X is a great kayak, we don't know what does.
The Connect Model X is the fastest kayak I've ever paddled. The acceleration and top speed are amazing and so is turning! It's even better than the Mitcho 2.0.
