Our Sprayskirts for racing & Fitness Kayaks
All the sprayskirts you find on our website are designed for racing and recreational kayaks. Unlike sea kayaks, in a racing kayak you sit with your knees together and above the edge of the cockpit. Therefore, you need a spray deck that is not fully stretched over the cockpit but allows your knees to sit higher. At the same time, you want to be able to move your legs when paddling. And in the case of wash riding, it may even be necessary to pull one foot back slightly without the spray skirt holding against too much. This means that the sprayskirt should, on the one hand, provide enough space for all the leg work in the kayak, but at the same time be relatively tight so that water does not collect between your knees. All our sprayskirts are waterproof with taped seams. However, the Padler Marathon sprayskirt does not have a waterproof zipper.
Correct sprayskirt size for racing kayaks
All our sprayskirts are compatible with all types and models of racing kayaks. An exception are old racing kayaks with 51 cm width measurements. They may have a larger cockpit. In that case, you can choose a spray skirt that also fits recreational kayaks. The pictures on this page show the canopies of a K1 Nelo Sete XXL with a cockpit size of 103 × 43 cm (outer dimensions).

Correct sprayskirt size for fitness kayaks
Some fitenss kayaks may have greater cockpit measures than racing kayaks. If the cockpit in your kayak exceeds 105 × 44 cm, we recommend one of the following models.
