A Friday at Penrose Outdoors
The kayak splits into 2 sections, each measuring 55 inches, which snap apart and reassembles in seconds! You can also snap in the mid-section and your Solo transforms into a high performance Tandem. It is extremely easy to carry and effortlessly fits into the back of a small car, so forget wasting time with a roof-rack and that back-breaking struggle to carry the kayak to the waters edge, spend more time enjoying the important things....like paddling along the water in the beaming sunshine!
This kayak gets a 10/10 for maneuverability!
Being a lover of kayaking, I jumped at the opportunity to test out the new model. Chris, Jody, Lee, Ed and I all had a go on the kayak and we all noticed how stable and safe the kayak felt. At no point did I feel like I was going to topple in whilst paddling around, and there was plenty of leg room, as well as a padded back rest which maximised the comfort of the kayak.
As you can see from the picture above, I didn't fall in, crash into anything and managed to stay dry, all thanks to the kayaks' great stability! I even managed to pick up a bit of speed! Next time I will remember to put my life jacket on though!
Ed is having fun (and being very brave) testing out the stand up paddle board.
Overall, it has been a really fun day at Penrose Outdoors. Not every place you work do you get to have a hands-on experience of the products, but we all know you can't give a real and honest opinion without simply getting in and having a go- just another day in the life at Penrose Outdoors!
