A stable racing K2, now in it’s third generation. Building on the successes of the Mystere, Meister and Tor K1, the Torque is the ultimate crew boat for paddlers looking for performance, stability and style.

With a little flatness towards the rear cockpit, and a gentle chine for improved tracking, this is a great stable racing boat for private, clubs and school paddling.

The completely redesigned deck, adds stiffness while reducing weight. Deck cutaways at both cockpit positions allow better access to the water, for improved technique and help with water shedding. It offers an excellent, efficient cruising speed. Crews struggling with balance will likely find it considerably faster that the Kirton Mirage and improve their competitive edge. Recommended for marathon racing and the Devizes to Westminster Easter challenge.

Now available in our latest infusion and vac-bag constructions, with a full range of seat options including light-weight Low and high 2-pin moulded seats.

Note: Despite the Meister's relatively high stability, we do not recommend this boat for absolute beginners. However, it can quickly be mastered by most paddlers, with the correct instruction and plenty of practice.
