Premium qualityrudder housing and components
Please note the rudder system in the above video and some imagery is the older style rudder, and all new Expedition kayaks come with the spring loaded SmartTrack Hybrid Foil rudder system. This new system is far easier to raise & lower the rudder into and out of the water via a single cord and lays flat when stowed as shown below.
The Expedition 3 sit-inis the fastest and ultimate touring kayak of the Bay Sports family of sea kayaks.
It was built for multi-day adventures, speed and capable of long distance paddling.
Compared to it's younger sibling the Expedition 2, it adds an extra 10cm of length + an extra watertight storage compartment conveniently located directly in front of the cockpit, making this sea kayak the ultimate expedition tourer for weekend getaways and exploring.
Design & Construction
Designed by renowned Swedish kayak designer Björn Thomasson, the Expedition 3 is the longer, faster brother to the Expedition 2, made for adventures great and far.
An extra 10 cm of length gives the Expedition 3 it's position as a top of the line expedition kayak.
It is made with our signature 3-Layer foam core, sandwiched between high-grade UV16 stabilised HDPE, make this kayak lighter and stronger than regular polyethylene construction alone.
A V-shaped hull with hard chine, and little rocker, easily cuts through water whilst deep grooved hull lines provide for excellent tracking.
Extra spacious cockpit makes it ideal for people 5'2” right through to 6’7” in height, having the most legroom length (Length from back of seat to forward bulk head 155cm)
The streamlined shape of this kayak is the basis for its speed and steadiness, and with our premium foot-controlled rudder system, makes for easy manoeuvrability even with cross winds or stronger ocean currents.
Mould in front of cockpit to install a Silva kayak compass.
The build quality is the best in class, with no traces of air bubbles inside the UV stabilised plastic walls, meaning your kayak is superior in durability and won't crack like brittle plastic kayaks prone to air bubbles, due to poor quality control.
Every single Expedition kayak is tested to ensure 3.5mm thickness, drop tested to ensure perfect plastic bond, balance tested for optimal stability, and water tested to ensure perfect seals. So rest assured your kayak will last for years to come.
