ZET introduces FIVE, the fifth boat in its lineup. Developed together with top paddlers and the ZET team, this new kayak brings all the components a kayaker can wish for in a boat for active moves on whitewater. FIVE is an aggressive whitewater boat, gliding nicely over waves and holes, accelerating like a demon and holding its line without any reduction in speed.
FIVE is a boat for proactive whitewater paddlers. When actively kept under control the kayak will reward with an instant reaction to every stroke. Every eddy carved and hole boofed is bound to bring a smile to a paddler’s face.
The width and the length of the FIVE mean that the boat holds its line perfectly and accelerates very fast. The hull is designed to release well from the water and, as such, to be predictable, yet aggressive in proper whitewater. A rockered bow and balanced hull with no “catchy” features makes it easy to maneuver and sensitive to paddle strokes, qualities that mean the boat will perform well in a whitewater race environment.
Designing the FIVE, we have focused intensely, not only on the functionality of the boat, but also on the fine details and construction. We believe you will be more than excited with our new kayak, FIVE.
"the whole boat is a little narrower than most mediums, I am 90Kg and around 6ft, it was tight for me, i would want to take out the hip pads. Although i was at the top of the weight range it was really nice to paddle, it felt a little sluggish on the flat compared to some other boats (though that is because of my weight) it was easy to keep the nose up over the drops and the displacement hull, although a change for Zet, felt great! responsive and forgiving but still a nimble boat. A Good modern Boat that should fit the slightly smaller paddlers perfectly!"
