MV Expedition Plus
HV Expedition Plus
The Lettmann "Skagerrak" is our very new seakayak, designed either for tall and heavy kayakers, or for super long trips with tons of luggage. Although the "Skagerrak" is a kayak with lots of volume, it is a sportive kayak with a very high directional stability, but easy to carve and surf.
The gimmick - our Skeg-Rudder
The Skagerrak's gimmick can be found under water - the innovative skeg rudder sysrem - invented by Lettmann. In an unique way it combines the classical skeg's function withe a rudder's advantages. It provides the perfect way to get used to working with a skeg - but if you leave your personal comfort zone, you can easily use it as a wholesome rudder that makes it easier to navigate the kayak, for beginner just like for experienced kayakers in rough conditions.
The skeg rudder was established in 2007, only for one seakayak, the Lettmann “Polar” which was not easy to navigate, due to its very round hull design. After that the skeg rudder was completely retrieved in 2014 for our “Biskaya”. Kayaker immediately loved the new opportunity to use both – skeg and rudder – in one system. The biskaya became our most successful sea kayak in our range. Now, after mounting it also to our Greenland seakayak “Skinner”, the Skagerrak is the third kayak with this innovative and perfectly working system.
