The Shadow is a roomy and more stable version of the Legend.

Capable of out-maneuvering even the Legend, the Shadow is designed with more stability and a better fit for the kayaker of slightly fuller figure. Like the Legend and Silhouette, the Shadow offers plenty of comfort room for the feet.

With its excellent expedition load capacity, the Shadow is a great kayak for that special get-away!

(Seen here on a multi-day trip in the Danish archipelago)

Easy to load through 2 oval hatches and a round day-hatch, the Shadow comes fitted with a comfortable seat with sturdy back-band. Upgrade by fitting a compass, choosing the Kevlar composite option, custom fitting your "foot" bulkhead, a footpump, or "Seaward" rescue straps. Check out "options".
