Kayak Specifications - see draft chart detailing NDK kayaks.  NDK kayaks are hand crafted.  Thus, kayak weights can vary by about a kilogram (2.2 lbs/kg) and vary by model length and volume.  A good rule of thumb, however, is:

  • Standard fiberglass (FG):  About 25 kg varying from ~23 kg (Pilgrim) to ~28 kg (Excel Expedition)
  • Fiberglass with spray gel:  Weight savings of ~ 2 kg from Standard FG
  • Elite (light) fiberglass:  Weight savings of ~ 3 kg from Standard FG
  • Hybrid 50/50 (standard fiberglass hull with Carbon/Kevlar deck): Weight savings of ~ 3 kg from Standard FG
  • Carbon/Kevlar (C/K):  Weight savings of ~ 5 kg from Standard FG
