Valley Etain RM
Valley kayaks are traditionally “fish-form” i.e. widest point slightly forward of centre. The Etain RM is more neutral, in fact very slightly Swede form i.e. widest point rear of centre. Swede form kayaks have a different feel, slightly more glide and a perception of speed that is more noticeable because you are now paddling in a narrower part of the boat. Paddling stroke is also less encumbered and there is a general feeling of having less boat between you and the water. Better…no, different… yes!
Other features are a hull that has shallow to moderate ‘V’ in cross-section for good initial stability, and rocker that would best be describe as moderate i.e. slightly less than some other Valley boats to provide secure tracking but still enough to provide a lively ride.
The day hatch is ideal for things like valuables, snacks, car keys, and small items of safety-kit that you might always want close to hand. Other features of the Etain RM include a locking point situated behind the cockpit and special attention given to cockpit ergonomics.
The Etain RM retains all the features of the composite model built in polyethylene construction. By offering a true expedition style kayak in this tough roto-moulded construction Valley offers a kayak ideally suited to a large number of paddlers and a multitude of usages.
The Etain is designed to appeal to paddlers looking for an enjoyable paddle, expedition-capable kayak that has a good turn of speed and tracks well.
