strong steering efficiency. The X-Lite displays its heritage in its graceful
lines and aggressive appearance as well as its handling capability and speed,
which translates each stroke into pure joy. The Point 65 X-Lite is designed by
Swedish kayak designer Johan Wirsén.
The X-Lite Pro Lite has all the X-Lite´s great characteristics, only in a lighter and
stronger version. The X-Lite Kevlar is made in infusion molded Kevlar/Carbon
material which makes it extremly stiff and light. The kayak weighs only 19 kg
(42 lbs) - including all the accessoires. The lightness not only makes the
kayak easier to handle out of the water, bbut is also great in surf and rougher
waters. Kayakers who are used to the heavier fibre-glass kayaks will find it a
whole new experience once they make the switch to Pro Lite.
