The new V1-X was totally gone through with modifications to the cockpit, ama and Hull. We took some of the rocker out of the center of the hull (under the cockpit) to reduce drag and keep more of the tail volume close to the water where it can be used. Small paddlers will like this because it increases their waterline for more glide between strokes. Large people will like this because they can make use of more volume in rough water, with a similar glide between strokes. The main canoe is wider by half an inch at most locations and by an inch at the cockpit, which is another fine source of volume. We redesigned the footwells to have a more relaxed angle to the ankle and to allow more drive off the leg during the pull. The seat platform has been lowered by half an inch (25mm) to provide more stability and the gunwales raised to above the seat top to provide more control and support through the foam seat. The newly redesigned ama has a great deal more volume and we reduced the rocker to improve glide (reduce drag).

The Huki V1-X is the perfect all round racer. She is as short as most rough water canoes while maintaining a longer waterline than any other canoe of the same overall length. This allows her to glide between strokes more smoothly while still fitting into the same big waves. She does Flat Water better than any other sub 22ft canoe and does big water as well as sub 21ft canoes. She is small enough for 100 pound paddlers and big enough for 200 pound paddlers in 10ft seas. 230 pound paddlers will be able to use her in seas of less than 3 ft.

You can custom outfit your Huki with bungees in front of the steering pedals, in front of the seat (under the legs) or behind the seat. You can place a 5 inch hatch in front of the steering pedals or behind the seat. You can install a lock hole in the footwell divider, to which you can attach your leash or your GPS or just run a bicycle lock through the lock hole and secure the canoe to your roof top. You can choose from several different rudders that will cover every kind of water condition on Earth. We can place a kelp guard in front of the rudder to deflect weeds from catching between the rudder blade and the hull. We can install the Emergency Steering Device that was developed and invented here at Huki, that will allow you to steer with only one steering pedal, in case one steering cable breaks while at sea.

Every V1-X comes with self bailing cockpits through high vacuum venturies through the bottom of the hull. Each canoe comes with the adjustable response steering system and the stubby iako storage system that were both developed and invented at Huki. You get your choice of one rudder (excluding the kickup rudder) included in your purchase, and a velcro down foam seat comes standard.
