• Draco OC1 Kai Waa

by Kai Wa’a

The Draco is a low volume, calm water canoe, designed with the versatility to serve a larger range of paddlers in calm to small surf conditions.

Designed for calm water to small surf conditions, as well as emerging paddling communities.
The Draco is a low-volume canoe with ample rocker for lakes, rivers, and light downwind conditions. Aesthetics and features are simplified to keep the canoe as light as possible.

Kai Bartlett Canoe designer “We set out with a clear intention to better serve calm water markets…As we began conceptualizing the design we noticed an increase of OC1 participation from the dragon boat community due to the pandemic.  With that in mind, we designed different features and benefits to cater to this unique dragon boat community, in addition to our initial goals.”

One of the most revolutionary features of the Draco is that it allows paddlers to rig their ama on whichever side they prefer, left or right. Among other things, this allows it to be used for Dragon Boat time trials.

In addition, for flat water paddling the Draco will have the versatility to rig an ama on both sides simultaneously, which provides for a more stable paddling experience. Contact your dealer for more information.
