Steve Pizzey paddled an Elliott Kayaks Reflection and placed equal first in the 2010 Yukon 1000 mile race.
July 2010: The reflection is officially one of the world's fastest touring kayaks!

Larger volume Kayak designed for paddlers up to 6”9”tall and over 100kg weight Ideal kayak for long sea expeditions (Urs Mader placed 2nd in the Yukon River Race in 2009) making the reflection one of the fastest true touring kayaks in the world.

Radical design by Craig Elliott. Craig was asked to design a sea kayak with a prismatic co-efficient of .60. He gave his father Ron the final hull dimension and after careful analysis Ron decided a prismatic coefficient of .65 was possible. Craig said that would be very difficult to achieve as a Nelo Vanish is only .67. We combined efforts and the result is possibly the fastest sea kayak in the world. Placing 1st & 2nd in the 2008 Hawkesbury Classic (James Murray and Urs Mader), James Murray placed 1st in the Murray River Marathon a few months later. Excellent initial stability has been made possible with smooth U shaped mid-section with a low wave-making bow and excellent vortex wave. Suitable for sea and grade 3 white water. Taller paddlers will enjoy this kayak.

Specifically designed for marathon and adventure races. The redesigned hull offers good stability and excellent hull speed. High watershed front deck combined with a flared bow allows rapid progress in disturbed waters. Stem is designed to carry the transition-wave away from the hull and reduce wave-drag. Half-angle of entry has been calculated to produce best possible water cleavage.

Rush deck

Our fastest single kayak. Redesigned in 2009 for higher hull speed and increased stability. At 5.85m the Rush misses the trouble-some 6m wave frequency. Kayaks longer than 6m can suffer from excessive wetted surface area. The energy consuming 6m wave-frequency is well known to boat designers. Tapered fore-deck allows a perfect ergonomic paddle entry. The computer generated bow shape allows minimum flow separation. Over marathon distances the Rush is faster than K1s. Suitable for advanced and elite paddlers.

Extremely fast Medium Recreational racing kayak. Sleek watershed deck combines with a balanced hull to produce dynanic performance from a 5.5m Hawkesbury compliance kayak. 12 degree half angle of bow entry delivers the maximum possible length on waterline with high weed shedding and minimum transverse/diverate wave-making. Transom stern allows the same flow lines as a 6 metre kayak, resulting in sustainable hull speeds of >11kph. The Matador loves heavy off-shore conditions in sea kayak races. Full forward water-plane combines with a balanced stern to produce a kayak that comes alive in heavy conditions.

Matador is the perfect multi-sport kayak, offering very high speed with excellent stability. Ergonomic EMS seat and patented Elliot Full Drive Footrest (EFDF) offer delivery of powerful paddle strokes from a stable paddling platform. The Matador is designed to win. Note: Matador is not an altered Van Dussen eg.Flash/Apollo XI. Matador is proudly designed and built in Australia by Elliott Kayaks. It's time to race,lets see who can beat a Matador *(Displacement is not hard to calculate, Archimedes did some calculations 2200 years ago and got it right)

Matador SOT (sit on top) incorporates the patented Elliot Minimum Water Intrusion Seat Well. Elliott Kayaks have designed a premium comfort seat/footwell that minimises volume of water intrusion, which of course adds weight to any ski. 20 litres of water intrusion=20kg heavier ski. Accurate computer calculations are very important in modern design. Elliott Kayaks will not be beaten for technology and paddler comfort.
