Aled Williams, formerly of Rockpool Kayaks, has launched a new company called IN-UIT to manufacture his latest kayak designs.
This company is formed to answer the increasing worldwide demand for his high quality and innovative designs. The kayaks will be built exclusively by a specialist kayak manufacturer, who employ skilled and experienced craftsmen, and use the latest laminating technology to create kayaks of a finer quality.
The new design ideas are realised with Computer Aided Design to give efficient hull shapes that retain the progressive handling characteristics associated with all Aled’s designs. The kayaks will be manufactured by vacuum infusion using the highest spec composites and resins. Two constructions will be offered: SuperLite and SuperTough.
• SuperLite kayaks will weigh approx 18Kg and consist mainly of carbon fibre, to give a very rigid and light weight build.
• SuperTough kayaks will weigh approx 22Kg and consist mainly of fine woven glass reinforced with aramid fibres. This popular construction makes for a durable and hardwearing build.
All kayaks will be available in a choice of custom colours, created especially for IN-UIT, and the ergonomic seating position and cockpit features will be refined.
Two sea kayak designs will be available in 2007:
• High performance coastal touring & rough water design
• Fast expedition design for extended trips
Aled looks forward to this exciting new venture and to sharing his innovative and high quality designs with like-minded kayakers who wish to experience the thrill of sea kayaking at its best
