Nothing like a pool of water in your boat to slow you down! Even the best spray-skirt won't stop all the water coming in through those rapids.
There was no pump system available for kayaks that worked satisfactory, and after comprehensive research and testing Hubby Sandberg developed this lightweight system that has proven to be the best pump available internationally. Once installed correctly these are the most efficient kayak pumps on the market as they work continuously with your paddle motion, therefore keeping the kayak dry at all times.
There is a K1 and a K2 pump. Each pump consists of two inflations (one under each foot) two inlet and two outlet valves, tubing, suction and outlet grommets, stainless steel screws, bolt and nut and instruction sheet. The pumps are mounted on two very sturdy nylon brackets that also support the valves. The inflations for the K1 measures 120mm and for the K2 140mm.
The non-return valves are nylon injected, with a neoprene ball attached to a high quality stainless steel spring. The valves do not block as they are self cleaning in use.
The pump is lightweight and the valves are unconditionally guaranteed.
The K1 pump is capable of pumping 4.5 litres of water per minute, the K2 5 litres.
These pumps are great for marathon kayak, and outrigger paddling.
