PELICAN Argo 100 Sit-Inside Kayak
Pelican's Argo 100 Sit-Inside Kayak is priced to make it easy to start a family fleet or just have an extra on hand in case a friend sees how much fun you're having and wants to join in. Whether you're taking your first strokes or have intermediate level experience, this is one easy to paddle kayak. Once in the water, even beginning paddlers will quickly feel confident with its stable, yet maneuverable performance.
The bright lime green color isn't just a trendy fashion statement either. You'll be more visible to other watercraft for an extra margin of safety. Wear a bright orange vest and you'll be seen by satellites.
Ruggedly built and light enough to transport on your vehicle with a top-mounted rack (sold separately) or in the back of a pickup, this kayak will lend itself to years of trouble-free paddling. Carrying it from the parking lot to the water is also a breeze with its ergonomical handles. You'll find the 10' length will fit horizontally or vertically for storage in most garages.
The Argo 100 was designed for recreational paddling on sheltered waters, lakes and slow moving streams. The low center of gravity you'll experience paddling a sit-inside kayak makes it easier to paddle, plus you are more protected from cold water if that's a consideration. Add an optional spray skirt (sold separately) for even more protection. And although it only weighs 38 pounds, this kayak is capable of carrying a generous 275 pounds including you and your gear.
Utilizing Twin Sheet Thermoforming (TST) technology, the Argo 100 features RAM-X™, a multi-layer material exclusive to Pelican, known for its high impact-resistance, its ability to regain its initial shape after violent impacts (like ramming that rock that jumped out in front of you) and a UV-protected exterior finish. Its twin-arched multi chine hull provides maximum stability so beginners will quickly and confidently master their paddling skills, plus it also tracks well to stay on course while underway.
The padded seat and adjustable backrest add comfortable support you'll appreciate on longer trips. Adjustable foot pegs allow you to adjust the leg length for different paddlers.
A cockpit table with bottle holder is molded-in so it's always in reach. There's also a notch built into the seat bottom that serves as another bottle holder. You'll find a bungee tie-down in the bow over a storage hatch that isn't waterproof so you'll want to get a dry bag (sold separately) to keep important items dry and another tie-down in the stern over a large tank well. The carrying handles found at the bow and stern make portaging easy as well as provide tie-down points for your roof rack, rafting together or docking.
If you don't already own them or it's time to replace the ones you have, remember to order a kayak paddle and a life jacket (both sold separately) so you'll be ready to splash your kayak as soon as possible!
