a single seater too - the solo seat position is well balanced
to paddle solo. These kayaks are roomy, with plently

expeditions. You can even opt for a 3rd seat for a small
saving simple clip lock system

KLEPPER frames are available in three types of materials:
Wood - Aluminum - Carbon
Ash and birch are the only two types of wood we use. Ash is used
for all long parts of the frame like the cockpit coaming, the rods
or the gunwale because of its flexibility and strength. Layers of
birch are bonded together in a
procedure called multiplex. All parts inside the frame (ribs, bow
and stern pieces, boomerang) and
the smaller wooden plates on the gunwale and on the keelboard are
made of several layers of
wood, glued together. All wooden parts are dip-coated in marine varnish
three times, with
a 24 hour drying time in between each coat.
Carbon frames are only available with the Aerius I 490. The carbon
frame is made of epoxy resin, carbon fiber fabric, fiberglass netting
aramid fiber. These components are very light and are also used in
aircraft construction and racing.
This provides for light and solid frames.
The Sprint Alu is the only KLEPPER single kayak with an aluminum
frame. The weight of the
boat is only 20 kg but do not underrate the payload of 150 kg.
There are no double
seater KLEPPER with an aluminum frame - there are no plans to produce
this type of kayak.
