Zegul HDPE

3-layer HDPE lay-up - When enhanced durability and stiffness over a single layer HDPE construction are needed, a three-layer sandwich of polyethylene foam between two polyethylene skins provides improvements. Although heavier than most single layer alternatives, the 3-layer HDPE lay-up provides the best combination of stiffness and durability for the cost.

Zegul A-Core

This lay-up increases durability and stiffness of the kayak, absorbing

even less energy during paddling and withstanding the most chal- lenging environments. All ZEGUL A-CORE built kayaks are equipped with sandwich reinforced keel area - ensuring scratch and impact strength. Hull and deck are joined using internally both fiberglass and aramide taping, externally a very robust aramide taping. All decks are built in sandwich construction. This construction is availa- ble for all Zegul kayak models.

Zegul 3D C-Core

Kayaks built with this method are finished with a clear carbon hull, which takes years of experience to be done correctly. We have ad- ded a new 3 dimensional carbon fabric into this construction, result- ing in even tougher and stiffer kayaks. The ZEGUL 3D C-CORE kayaks are built using full HD LRA core lay-up in the kayak hulls. This produc- tion method combines vacuum infusion technology with high per- formance properties of special marine grade epoxy resin and severaltypes of carbon fiber, carbon/aramide and glass multiaxial fabrics to create probably the highest quality carbon core built kayaks in the industry. These kayaks are even more versatile than the regular car- bon/aramide and carbon built kayaks on the market. This construc- tion is available for all the Zegul Play series kayaks.

This production method combines vacuum infusion technology with the high performance properties of a special marine grade epoxy res- in, several types of carbon fiber, carbon/aramide and glass multiaxial fabrics to create the highest quality carbon core built kayaks in the industry. Years of experience are needed to perfect a clear carbon hull using three dimensional carbon fabric which results in the stiffest, most durable kayak. This construction is available for all Zegul Play series kayaks.

Zegul Flax

The Zegul Flax lay-up is a special construction that uses flax fibre fab-

ric combined with glass multiaxial fabric. The flax fiber material has best damping capabilities than any other fiber on the market due to the built of flax fibers as it cas many concentric layers in one fibre. This makes the material similar to carbon material in terms of strengths and damping. The flax fiber construction is finished with a clear coat- ed gel coat which means the beautiful material will be completly visi- ble on the kayak. This lay-up is available for Zegul Easy with matching details.

Color options

Main colour options for Zegul HDPE are simple - blue, red, yellow and lime green. Every kayak model has its own factory colour schemes. We use new polyethylene mix, which means that
the material is with improved stiffness, higher UV resistance and the colours are more vibrant.

Total of six gelcoat options are available for composite kayaks: White, Red, Blue, Black, Zegul Orange and Lime Green. Every model has its own factory colour schemes. Special orders using any of the six gelcoat colours are possible.
