A few years back there was a touring kayak call the Elie Strait 140 XT which was very popular throughout its few production years and then it was gone. Well, Pelican have now reviewed the old design of the Strait 140 XT, taken what was best about it and added some new stuff too. Enter, the Pelican Sprint 140DT. This new and improved touring kayak is still made from RAM-X, a High Molecular Weight Polyethylene which is light, rigid, fast and at only 25 kg it's pretty lightweight too. Ram-X is well know for its durability, memory and high resistance to taking the knocks so when you buy a Ram-X Pelican you can be confident it will be with you for quite some time.
Right from the off this sleek 14 foot touring kayak really looks the part. You immediately notice the multiple storage hatches, sharp lines and there's even a handy rudder ready fitted on the back as well. The seat design remains almost exactly the same, which is good as the old Elie Strait 140 was comfortable over longer distances and the low backband promotes a good paddling posture to help you pull this tourer through the water at a very good pace. The rudder is controlled using the footrests meaning that once this kayak is twinned with a good quality touring paddle you can concentrate on where you're going and eat up the miles.
On the deck there are several storage hatches, a large rear and smaller bow hatch access the hull internal space while just behind the seat and cockpit there is a small day hatch for anything you want to keep close at hand. There are the usual deck lines down the sides and storage bungees front and back so there is plenty of room for all your kit. At the rear of the hull you will also notice the replaceable black keel strip. This not only extends the wetted keel line of the kayak making it track better and faster, but also if you do end up dragging your boat or smack the back end on something, it's a fairly simple job to swap that out and replace it with a new one. This is a great idea as the back of a kayak can often be a high wear area and having something that you can change over the years if you need to is quite handy.
