In the 1700’s, Russian sailors sailing the Aleutian Islands gave this uniquely-shaped kayak the name "Baidarka” meaning small boat. The lower portion of its upswept bow is extremely narrow, allowing for clean entry lines, while the upper bow is fuller and wider, increasing buoyancy, causing the Baidarka to rise over the oncoming waves. Baidarkas are known for their unusually fast speed. With their Swede form shape and high volume stern they produce an incredibly high hull speed.
Our Baidarka is designed for the paddler who desires a unique looking boat with performance, light weight and beauty.
Vacuum infusing, which we use in Zegul production, is one of the most advanced construction methods used in the composite industry.This production method ensures the best strength/weight ratio possible. Here we are combining the high-performance properties of marine grade epoxy resin with several types of carbon fibre, carbon/aramide and glass fabrics to create very high-end products with smooth and clear carbon look.
For smaller components we use light RTM production method. This method has been securing us the high interpretation rate in our products. This method ensures a high rate of production.
