Necky Elias Composite Kayak w/ Skeg

Introducing the Elias, an agile, playful and responsive touring kayak. The Elias takes its design cues from Necky’s® popular women’s-specific Eliza™ kayak, with a slightly longer and larger hull designed to appeal to a broad variety of paddlers.

At fifteen and a half feet, the Elias is extremely efficient for a kayak its size. Its relatively modest waterline translates into less effort for the paddler at normal cruising speeds, making the Elias significantly more efficient for everyday touring than other kayaks in its class. The Elias is ideal for day touring and weekend excursions.

Necky® introduced its first kayak in the mid-1970s, hoping to improve upon traditional British kayak designs. The goal: to create a stable, roomy, comfortable vessel that the average paddler could maneuver on the ocean. To do this, Necky adapted a high-volume whitewater design, adding more length, width, and a larger cockpit than the traditional version.

By the 1980s Necky had begun manufacturing composite touring kayaks and also introduced the first polymer model. Less expensive than fiberglass designs, the polymer model also had the advantage of being virtually indestructible.

By working with experts in both the aerospace and yachting industries using aircraft-grade materials, Necky, a Johnson Outdoors® brand, has been able to produce laminates that yield kayaks that are significantly stronger, stiffer, and lighter than anything else on the market.
