The Lettmann Machete leads the class of modern half-slice kayaks. No other half-slice kayak has so few compromises. Half the slice…double the fun!
Elegant and playful on easy river sections, but forgiving on difficult whitewater.
With its flat bottom, the Machete is ‘Queen of the Wave.’ Spins, blunts and ‘soul surfing’ are an integral part of the experience. The slicy stern and extra bow volume make stern squirts, rock splats and pirouettes a breeze.
A radical rocker profile allows the Machete to climb up over big holes, while its fast acceleration gives you confidence in those ‘must make’ moves.
Nothing else matches the Machete.
Standard features include 3 aluminium safety handles, size-adjustable aluminium bulkhead footrest, and front/rear foam support pillars. Creature comforts such as cushioned Sport seat, ratchet-adjusted padded backrest and adjustable padded thigh braces complete the package.
