Raptor LX 44 (K1) – by Connect Kayaks – World class sprint and marathon canoe/kayaks

Connect Kayaks was established in 2014 by current owner Gonçalo Mota in municipality of Amarante, Portugal.

Connect Kayaks has developed into one of the world’s most respected manufacturers. Every design and construction detail is considered and continually improved to ensure Connect Kayaks remains at the forefront of paddling craft manufacturers.

Connect Kayaks is proud of the business it has become but even more proud of the athletes that represent us on the water; without the athletes we are worthless. It is for this reason Connect Kayaks will always put the athlete first!

The Raptor LX 44 is designed for the lighter paddler seeking a high performance K1 with the feel and look of a modern competition kayak but with significantly better stability. This design is a great choice for masters, fitness paddlers and clubs for youth activities. Connect seats and footplates are also compatible with Nelo Kayaks making switching fittings to Nelo team boats an easy transition.
