The Venture Islay 12 is the perfect boat for the paddler progressing from a shorter, recreational kayak to something a little speedier and with greater storage options for extended on-the-water adventures. Venture Islay offers the features of a longer touring or sea kayak but with a little more manoeuvrability and an easily manageable size making it the perfect upgrade for adventurers wanting to expand their options. Venture offers greater hull efficiency and is perfect for both day trips and weekend adventures, and with the Fit4Sport Outfitting, you can stay comfortable and supported on every journey.
The Venture Islay 12 is constructed from TriLite which is exclusive to Venture and provides increased hull stiffness in addition to a weight reduction to enhance hull performance for a more responsive boat. TriLite also makes it much easier to paddle, carry, and rooftop the boat meaning that you can travel easily and have fun in deep water. It also uses MZ3, a whitewater-grade single skin polyethylene known for its supreme impact resistance and well suited for hard use and those on a budget.
The Fit4Sport Outfitting features a pivoting deep-fill padded seat that can be adjusted to an angle that is the perfect tailored fit to your body and the flexible seat support ensures a smooth ride even on choppy water. The seat support self-adjusts to maintain optimum performance, hull integrity and impact resistance. It comes with thigh grips that are designed with a highly ergonomic shape for easy, rock-solid adjustment ensuring the best position for both comfort and control.
Alongside the thigh grips, the Fit4Sport Outfitting features oversized hip pads that provide a comfortable and snug fit that makes it easier to perform precise edge control and rolling in your Venture Islay 12. The floating backrest also replaces a high backrest to offer increased connectivity in addition to compatibility with spraydecks.
