Zegul's Arrow Empower is a full bodied sea kayak made for long trips and expeditions.

The Empower kayak is surprisingly agile despite its length, has a very nice glide and it handles almost like a play boat when put on edge. The Empower kayak has soft chines and a long water line. The hull’s profile is rounded and the rocker is moderate to handle big seas. The four hatches are all beautifully recessed into the deck and packs with ease for extended trips or just for a weekend getaway. The knee hatch holds gear like an VHF radio or cell phone and small water bottle. The day hatch has lots of room for other stuff needed while at sea.

The Arrow Empower, Rock Solid kayak was used to circumnavigate Svalbard on a 71 day expedition in 2015- after 20+ years of failed attempts. Find an amazing preview of the movie documenting this experience here.

Information about Rock Solid Construction

Zegul took the well known, Arrow-kayaks-developed Rock Solid construction and improved it even further. It certainly wasn’t an easy task. Mr. Ilcus from Arrow kayaks was a part of the R&D team and carefully inspected all the layers at Zegul's facilities. After discussion and testing, they decided to add another layer of glass/kevlar, making the laminate even stronger and stiffer. The positioning of the pure, kevlar keel strip was modified to give even better results. They also made improvements on the outer finish of the keel strip for a smoother and more even result. After thorough tests, the Rock Solid construction is a solid choice in composite kayaks.
