Pelican Sprint 120DT


The Pelican Sprint 120DT picks up where the old Elie Strait 120 leaves off. The Elie was a very popular touring kayak because it was short and easy to handle, light weight so easy to carry and car top, and fast, nimble and a joy to paddle on the water. Now with some minor improvements to the overall boat (minor as it really didn't need much improving) it's back as the Pelican Sprint 120DT.


Made from light weight Pelican Ram-X material, the Sprint 120DT only weighs 20kgs in total so you immediately notice how easy this little kayak is to pick up and move. The material feels nice and strong and the rigidity and deep V chine to the hull just oozes a desire to get on the water. Indeed, over short or longer trips, the Sprint 120 just glides through the water with very little effort required from the paddler. Although there is no rudder on the shorter Sprint 120DT, it really doesn't need one. The straight line tracking is great and with good levels of secondary stability it is easy to get to grips with edging and once mastered the Sprint 120DT turns smoothly whether you are navigating large bodies of water or narrow back rivers.


On the deck you get good levels of storage space. At the rear there is a larger oval hatch that accesses the internal hull space, while to the bow there is a smaller round hatch to do the same. The larger rear storage area has a bulkead inside while the bow hatch just has a storage bag. On the deck you get deck lines both sides and some bungee areas as well to help you keep emergency things close by. The removeable black keel extension is there at the back as well to not only help extend your keel line to the max and aid tracking and speed, but also so if you do drag it around and scrape the rear you're not going to damage the hull itself.


These little touring kayaks were always popular and almost everyone we knew who paddled them came away with a smile on their face and lots of good things to say about them. Indeed when the old Elie Straits were around someone once reviewed them and perhaps put it best saying that whoever designed the 140 deserved a medal, but whoever designed the 120, deserves 2.
