The Lettmann „Skagerrak“ is our very new sea kayak, designed for long trips with tons of luggage or for paddlers which look for a very secure kayak on daytrips. For tall and heavy kayakers, we recommend the High-Volume version and for mid-size paddlers the Medium-Volume version. Although the „Skagerrak“ is a very save kayak with lots of volume, it is a sportive kayak with a very high directional stability. It is easy to carve and surf in waves and it´s easy to control with your hips as well. The very high first stability will help you in many situations.
The plus factor – our Skeg-Rudder
The Skagerrak’s gimmick can be found under water – the innovative skeg rudder system – invented by Lettmann. In a unique way it combines the classical skeg’s function with a rudder’s advantage. It provides the perfect way to get used to working with a skeg – but if you leave your personal comfort zone, you can easily use it as a wholesome rudder that makes it easier to navigate the kayak, for beginner just like for experienced kayakers in rough conditions.
The skeg rudder was established in the late 90th for the Lettmann “Polar” which was not easy to navigate, due to its very round hull design. After that the skeg rudder was completely redesigned in 2011 for our “Biskaya”. Kayaker immediately loved the new opportunity to use both – skeg and rudder – in one system. The Biskaya became our most successful sea kayak in the range. Now, after mounting it also to our Greenland seakayak “Skinner”, the Skagerrak is the third kayak with this innovative and perfectly working system.
