As the name suggests, this kayak strikes a perfect balance between two worlds.
The Equinox brings together the comfort and stability of recreational kayaks and the performance of a true sea kayak. The efficient V hull and hard chines provide stability and glide in one package. The kayak tracks well and performs leaned turns with ease. The ample cockpit is equipped with thigh braces that give excellent control even to the smaller sized paddler. The Equinox comes fully rigged with elegant styling, front deck bunjis, rear deck re-entry lines, recessed deck fittings and Eddyline’s retractable carrying handles and security loops. For comfort and fit we provide hip pads, thigh pads, and our three way adjustable backrest fitted to a comfortable padded seat. The Equinox will delight you with its performance in the water and shines bright under the sun and moon. Rudder Free Design.
In 1996 we gave “plastic kayaks” a whole new meaning with our Carbonlite 2000 technology. Carbonlite 2000 is a high performance co-extruded plastic laminate that is proprietary to Eddyline Kayaks. It is first made into a two layer flat sheet with a “muscle” substrate and a hard abrasion and UV resistant exterior. Then, using very high temperatures and vacuum, we form each sheet into the deck or hull of a kayak.
Carbonlite 2000 brings the technology of plastic kayaks to an entirely new level of performance. Eddyline pioneered this technology back in 1995 and Carbonlite 2000 is an Eddyline exclusive. Our material looks and performs like fiberglass with clear advantages over other plastics: dimensional stability and increased stiffness, higher heat distortion temperatures, hard glossy “non fuzzing” finishes with excellent abrasion and impact resistance, easy repairability, superior UV resistance and lighter weights. Carbonlite 2000 is extremely tough, but it is also easily repaired in the event of an accident. It has endured the test of time in the hands of many paddlers, liveries and tour operators and is highly suitable for nearly all kayak applications.
Eddyline is committed to manufacturing in an environmentally responsible manner. Carbonlite 2000 is 100% recyclable (as are the bulkheads, cockpit and seat), all scrap plastic is recycled and virtually no waste is generated.
