Unlike most manufacturers, Prijon use HTP and their entire kayak range is Blow Moulded. Put simply, this is the best plastic and manufacturing process used for producing a kayak anywhere in the world today…
Manufactured in Germany. Prijon produce their kayaks with the well renowned HTP or Hochleistungs-Thermoplast if you want to get technical! This type of PE can only be used in Blow Moulding manufacture, which is why other manufactures will stick with HDPE through normal rotational moulding.
So why would you opt for HTP – Blow Moulding? The real difference comes in the molecule structure of HTP. Comparing it to traditional Roto-Moulded PE, HTP has molecule chains that are approximately 10 times longer. This has a long list of advantages but the important parts are that it produces a kayak that is stiffer, lightweight, has a higher impact resistance and is also less susceptible to abrasion! If you want a kayak that is truly bomb proof, then look no further!!
With every brand that we stock, we always like to put kayaks through their paces to ensure we are happy with them. This links to our ongoing mission statement “To supply great toys of the best quality and at the right price that we would happily paddle ourselves to people who want to buy them”.
With this in mind, staff members Tom and John of Kayaks & Paddles wasted no time putting the first Prijon Curve stock to arrive in the UK through their paces on a local white water hotspot, the East Lyn River! We’ve included some pictures of their session below.
It’s safe to say the guys were very impressed with their first proper experience in the new Prijon Curves!
