North Shore Aspect RM

Aspect and Aspect LV made in the UK by Northshore

Shorter than more traditional sea kayaks and having a well thought out hull design, the Aspect is easier to handle and manoeuvre than longer models, and well suited for inland touring and coastal trips.

North Shore Aspect RM

Modern sea kayakers are not all looking to cover the maximum amount of distance in a day, or spending weeks away on tough expeditions. The Aspect has the same features as longer sea kayaks, but in a boat 14 ft long. The cleverly designed hull combines a modest beam with moderately soft chines and shallow V. This provides predictable and responsive handling and a higher level of performance than a general 14ft touring kayak and responsive handling. The North Shore Aspect also has a slightly wider hull shape, which lends itself to more primary stability than narrower sea kayaks. A feature that is well sought after by those with less experience or wanting a more stable touring kayak.

The North Shore Aspect offers sea kayaking performance for paddlers who do not need a 17 foot kayak, and prefer a more all-round kayak. They can be used on UK coastal waters, and also for inland touring, with two roomy bulkheads, there is also plenty of storage space for overnight camping kit if needed. As with all Northshore kayaks, the Aspect and Aspect LV is moulded locally to us here at Manchester Canoes by a British owned company. Available in two sizes to suit different weight paddlers; including junior kayakers wanting to cover some miles (the Aspect LV has a lower recommended weight capacity of 54kg).
