Zegul Kayaks Arrow Nuka GT MV PE Kayak Review
Don't miss this rare opportunity to grab one of these exquisitely designed European Craft from Canada's Tahe & Zegul Kayaks Experts!
The Zegul Arrow Nuka GT MV PE is a triple layered polyethylene version of the best-selling composite Arrow Nuka GT but with added volume within the cockpit to increase the fit range.
With that in mind, it best satisfies performance oriented paddlers in the 140 to 200 lb paddling weight range. It is has been designed for Intermediate and advanced paddlers, while it will inspire dedicated newcomers towards skills development.
As in most European designs ‘simplicity rules’, which means don’t expect the ultra-cushy seat with lots of adjustments found in many N.A. boats! Instead, expect a well-thought, robust, but Spartan seat system that thankfully has everything correctly placed. The Zegul Arrow Nuka GT MV PE cockpit's length is long enough to provide easy access, yet low enough as not to interfere with a high angle paddle stroke.
A contour back band provides almost perfect support and allows a full range of motion. Multi adjustable thighbraces were welcome new upgrades, and combine with the easily adjustable foot braces provide the ‘perfect contact points’ required for rapid skills progression.
The Arrow Nuka GT MV PE features a multi-adjustable back rest to further improve the paddler's fit. The back rest is manually adjusted using a nut & bolt system that offers virtually unlimited customization. It takes some time to hone in your perfect fit and the back rest cannot be adjusted on the water. However, once you've got it placed exactly where it's needed, you'll appreciate the comfort that's provided!
Kayak Efficiency & Maneuverability
Despite its slightly shorter sea kayak length the Nuka GT MV PE retains an effortless glide and offers very quick acceleration ~ this baby’s got speed to burn. The Nuka GT has optimized efficiency by combining it's very narrow 20.5 inch beam with a raking bow and stern to maximize its waterline.
Similar to most kayaks, slight weathercocking can be expected in adverse conditions but is quickly eliminated by simply deploying the skeg. The hull is slightly rounded for less resistance and less wet surface. The kayaks rocker is marginally less than 'moderate' and combine with hard chine sides for solid edging and extremely nimble turns.
Its narrow beam and slightly round hull purposely forsakes a degree of initial stability to optimize maneuverability. The Zegul Arrow Nuka GT MV PE transitions seamlessly from edge to edge and ‘turns on a dime’ for a sea kayak its length and hard chine sides provide solid secondary stability.
Kayak Roll & Rescue
Entry and exit should be easy for medium sized paddlers and its flat rear deck make a great platform for self and assisted rescues. Great contact points and the low rear deck make layback rolls a snap!
The Zegul Arrow Nuka GT MV PE accelerates to a touring pace quickly and its deck is low enough as not in interfere with paddle strokes. The four lightweight Kayak Sport Hatches click-on and off easily and the ‘mini’ foredeck hatch is handy for electronics and personal items. Recessed deck and perimeter lines are well positioned
