Compact. Light. Reliable. From learning the basics to varied adventures, the Ion is the kayak equivalent of a multi-tool. The Ion is, in essence, a shorter Fusion, and as well as ‘Ion’ being an appropriately shorter proportion of its bigger brother’s name (without losing the particle physics theme), the word is derived from the Greek word meaning ‘to go’. A shorter boat is better suited to shorter journeys, as well as being more manoeuvrable and easier to transport and store; as the aim of the Ion is not to take on as committing adventures as its larger sibling, we’ve also been able to keep the outfitting functional but simple and light, to reduce not only the overall weight of the boat, but the complexity of getting it set up and ready ‘to go’.
