From P&H

P&H's best-selling sea kayak is now available in composite!

The Composite Virgo takes P&H's best-seller of the last 2 years running and makes it even better; more responsive on the water, more efficient, and weighing as little as 16kg, meaning it's an easy choice for anyone who wants to upgrade from a plastic Virgo, or jump straight into composite in a design they can be sure of.

Key Features

  • A V-hull cuts cleanly through the water and tracks beautifully but softens towards the centre of the boat for comfortable stability and easy release.
  • Moderate rocker allows the Virgo to pick up and carry speed efficiently when flat but swing around effortlessly on edge.
  • Hard chines engage for carving performance when edging into the turn.
  • A moderately steep bow ensures a high proportion of the length acts as effective waterline for hull speed.
  • Flared bow edges give a dry ride through choppy water and lift the boat over waves on the paddle out from the shore.
  • Carefully planned bow deck geometry provides stiffness and strength for deep water rescues.
  • Functional details such as split paddle recesses, a drop-forged, anodised aluminium security point, a paddle park, and a full complement of deck lines and bungees.
  • P&H's famously comfortable, highly-adjustable and reliable Connect outfitting.
