How does the Interface handle compared to the Beachcomber?
- Speed- It’s faster in all situations (approx. 15-20%) that we have tested it in so far, acceleration, up wind, downwind, side on and in flat water. We have seen cruising speeds ranging from 9.5km/h to 10.2km/h and top sprinting speeds of 12km/h all with experienced paddlers. We will be testing over the next two weeks with novice and first time paddlers and will post our findings on the website and face book. It would be fair to say that the Interface has blistering up wind speed- where it really counts!
Given that the prototype is built from fibreglass and approximately 5kg heavier than the vacuum formed production kayak I would expect up to a 5% speed increase, I am also confidently the production weight to be comparable to the Beachcomber Ultralight at 17kg.
