Struer Kajak

The ideal curve

The competition kayaks gained a wedge shape, the early stages of which were already seen among the Struer kayaks in the LANCER from 1969, and more clearly in the RANGER from 1971.

The optimal wedge shape was determined by the State Laboratory for Ship Technology, Copenhagen, in 1978.

The CLEAVER and the TIGER were built later with exactly this ideal curve, while an improved version of the LANCER appeared in 1977, and an improved version of the RANGER for the lightest rowers in 1980.
