The Big Bang is our evolutionary creek boat / expedition kayak capable of handing class 5 creeks yet at the same time having ample speed for long hauls and enough packing space for extended periods in the wild.
The Big Bang is based on our highly successful Expedition Solo, which proved to be an exceptional boat for running the hard stuff while also having the luxury of a hatch compartment for easy packing on multiday trips. Did we take the E Solo concept and just stretched it out? Yes and no. We created a longer, faster version of it, but we also changed some crucial features of the design. The Big Bang is super forgiving despite the longer length. It is still highly manoeuvrable, punches big holes like no man’s business, boofs like a much shorter boat, and has the volume and peaked decks to keep it on top at all times.

The Big Bang features the tried and tested hatch system of the E Solo with a sealed off foam bulkhead. The knee area is raised and also relatively wide to accommodate big paddlers. Copious volume and an extended water line means that heavy paddlers will find the Big Bang a cruise. It is naturally an easy boat to roll too.

The Big Bang is ideal for kayakers doing multiday expeditions, kayakers wanting some extra speed in a creekboat, and also for kayakers too big to fit comfortably in normal creek boats. It is a great choice too for kayakers needing easily accessible space for rescue or photography gear.
