The long awaited Detox is finally in production!
- Fluid just started moulding the Medium Detox, the Small and Large versions will follow shortly.
For kayakers who want a creekboat with a playboat hull; for kayakers who want to run rivers and play on the way down; for kayakers who want an easy boat to learn to kayak with - there has never been a better-suited kayak than the Detox.
The Detox hull incorporates the Nemesis rail system with super forgiving sidewalls and generous kick rocker to create an exciting but very stable ride.
The Detox has ample volume and peaked decks to ensure controllable surfacing when running drops. The deck profile and hull width make the Detox super easy to roll, inspiring confidence on difficult runs.
The Detox fills the gap between the Spice and the Solo series in the Fluid line-up. If the Spice is too playful for the type of rivers you want to run, and the Solo is too much of a full-on creeker to enjoy on easier runs, the Detox is the boat for you.
Fluid`s new Dry bags
Fluid Kayaks recently launched their own series of dry bags.The new dry bags are made from 550gm PVC-coated nylon with thermo-welded seams and are extremely durable. The dry bags roll down and clip closed to form a watertight seal. A convenient carry handle is fixed to the back of the dry bag with two D-rings. An extra two D-rings are fitted closer to the bottom for extra security when fastening.
• The dry bags are available in two colours, gray and orange.
• The dry bags are available in two sizes, 15 litre and 30 litre.
Fluid`s international team of kayakers tested the new dry bags on a recent kayak expedition in the Transkei. The dry bags were used and abused during the 5-day kayak expedition of the main Umzimvubu gorge, and Fluid is very pleased to report that the dry bags received a convincing thumbs up.
