The Double Pontoon Hull allows the easy flow of water through the channels, increasing traction and increasing speed. Even though the Pike is a short kayak, the hull and shape have created extra buoyancy, and the Pike has a carrying capacity of 190kgs / 419lbs comfortably. The additional weight capacity was a crucial element in this model’s design, and the Pike offers a lot of storage for a Kayak of this size.
The Pike has an easy-to-operate adjustable foot control or hand-controlled rudder system, and the system is interchangeable from one system to another. The Deep adjustable rudder provides great direct action and limits drift therefore keeping the speed of the Kayak. As a bonus, the Rudder blades are compatible with the Bixpy motor. Should you wish to add a Trolling motor, there are Brass inserts molded in at the Stern of the Kayak to make provision for a side motor mount.
Six removal scupper plugs on the deck, when removed, will release water in choppy conditions.
Storage is always a must on kayaks, and the Pike has a square hatch in front of the raised seat that opens up into the hull, which is perfect for those bigger catches. Should you take on some water from inserting your catch of the day or merely needing to rinse out the craft, there are two drainage holes at the Kayak stern that can easily unscrew to allow drainage water.
The Kayak’s bow, complemented with a large flip-up hatch, and the Kayak’s stern area, a large storage tank well with bungees, allow ample space to secure your gear.
When you are on the water for a long-time, comfort is highly appreciated; the Pike has a raised Deluxe Aluminium seat to assist. The seating is adjustable to recline or upright to your comfort needs, and the raised element keeps the water under the seat and not on you.
The Pike, fitted with a molded-in high or low seating position, makes for easy chair height adjustment. The low position for choppy conditions and the elevated position gives you an advantage view of the water and added comfort.
The Pike has two accessory rails on either side of the Kayak, which adds the option of adding rod holders and any other requirement.
A Fish Finder can be mounted to the Pike easily as there is spacing built into the Kayak’s hull for a transducer and cabling to run comfortably. The transducer plate protects your transducer, and under the transducer plate, you will find pre-assembled inserts to secure your transducer.
Overall, the Pike is a Kayak with all the necessary elements to cater very comfortably to both the avid fisherman and recreational paddle alike.
