The Galasport CAIPI FINS is one evolutionary step farther from CAIPI model, which had been developed in cooperation with French top athlete Boris Neveu, who claimed World Championship titles in 2014 and 2021. Even though making improvements on an almost perfect boat was nearly impossible, the result proved worth the effort with the success it immediately earned among kayakers worldwide.
Some cosmetic adjustments were made to CAIPI -
- The hull is a little rounder at about 80cm from the bow’s tip.
- The stern was slightly modified for better turning.
- Thanks to these basically minor changes turning abilities improved, but the fins made the boat stick in your line and not oscillate or wiggle out during acceleration.
- Integrated fins were designed to comply ICF rules and regulations
