Weight reduction – Tootega Pulse 85 Hydrolite preview

Tootega kayaks have been tinkering with their popular Pulse 85 and reduced the weight of the boat further – in fact, by almost almost 20%! – great news for sit on paddlers. Weighing in at a meagre 14kg the brand’s new Pulse 85 Hydrolite is now one of the lightest adult sit on top kayaks available.

The new Pulse 85 Hydrolite will appeal to a wider range of paddlers – some of whom may have discounted sit ons due to their perceived heavy nature. Extensive research and tweaking led Tootega to the position of being able to offer the Pulse 85 in its new lighter construction and Steve Childs – one half owner of the company – hinted at further innovative manufacturing developments to follow shortly.

You can order either Electric Blue or Candy Floss Pink right now so if you’re after a super light and manoeuvrable kayak sweep over to your local Tootega dealer and get involved.
