The Queen of Hearts is the ultimate lighter weight paddlers all round river runner and river play machine. Its design cues are from ret of the Spade Kayaks range but mainly the Black Jack and the Royal Flush. Unlike most smaller paddlers boats this is a unique design, its not just a scaled down version of the bigger boats. Designing a boat specifically for smaller paddlers has allowed significant steps forward in performance making this boat easier to paddle whilst at the same time it preforms to a much higher level, all whilst looking after the paddler and making their day as easy as possible on the river. An all round win win!
Once again the bow rocker has been tweaked to keep a drier surf and help get the boat to speedily and confidently cross those challenging eddy lines and boils. The side profiles have been designed to maximise speed and efficiency in forward paddling as well as enjoying a good surf.
Volume: 245 L
Optimum Paddler Weight: 35-70kg
Outfitting designed by the guys and girls at Spade is focussed on ergonomics. The seat can be adjusted forwards and backwards so you can set the boat up to paddle exactly as you want or leave it central for a neutral style. The hip pads, thigh braces and footrest systems are all included as standard so the boat will work for you straight out of the box. (It doesn't actually come in a box). It is important to understand that the seat, tower and cockpit have all been designed to be super ergo as well as to work in conjunction to provide the safest possible cage/pod in any pin situations, hence maximising your easy exit if required.
The Queen of Hearts, Spade Kayaks answer to everything for smaller paddlers wanting a boat designed specifically for them :-)
