The Sky 10 kayak came into existence due to the popularity of our well liked Skylark and the ever increasing demand for smaller, lighter boats.
This kayak carries most of the paddling qualities and features of its 12 foot sister but sports a good 8 lbs less weight, making car-topping and general handling that much easier. The Sky 10 has more than adequate hull speed and efficiency for keeping up with groups on casual cruises and plenty of capacity for the average paddler.
A roomy cockpit, (the same size as the Skylark) comfortable Infinity seat and backrest, hatches and bulkheads bow and stern for safety, excellent stability and a host of features combine to make this kayak a fun choice for recreational paddling along shorelines, lakes and easy rivers. Small enough to load on your big boat – toss in your camera, lunch and fishing rod and paddle to your favorite spot with ease.
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.
