Kirton Tempest

Wobble factor 10
Manufacturer: Kirton

With low-profile racing lines and a well-balanced hull form, the Tempest delivers stability and performance at an affordable price. Originally built in China to our high specifications, now to be built in the UK, the Tempest boasts an impressive feature set that's suitable for both club and personal use. The sliding platform seat and footrest are easily adjusted and secured using a simple grip-and-slide system. The footrest also comes with a central brace for extra security, as well as a fitted foot strap.

The Tempest was designed with optimal stability in mind, making it the perfect choice for newcomers to the sport. For the more experienced, it’s a cost-effective second choice for the colder seasons, when the risk of going for an unexpected swim is unthinkable.

Despite the relatively large size of this K1, it remains surprisingly agile in the water and it is able to maintain a fast cruising speed with minimal effort. The larger paddler in particular, will appreciate the spacious cockpit. The sleek low profile gives a racing appearance without compromising practicality and the high-displacement hull shape means it is suitable for a large range of paddler weights.

Available in white, with a choice of three deck flashes (red, blue and black), the sporty styling of the Tempest means it looks great from the bank and from the cockpit so you can paddle with confidence. What's more, the hull conforms to the Paddleability racing rules, making it one of the best-value and best-performing contenders in the field.
