W have three new freestyle kayaks in the works that Mega will be producing in composite (only - no plastic). High performance, and designed to go out and win the worlds (assuming someone of that calibre paddles it).

What's important however is to understand that the three sizes are not scale models of one of the sizes (invariably the M). They are stand alone designs. Of course they are based on one another, but the S is not a smaller M, and neither is the L a bigger M.

Why is this?

A 6' person (183cm) in a Large is 6% taller than someone 5'8" (173cm) in a Medium. A 5'3" (160cm) person in a Small is 6% smaller than someone 173cm tall.

But, a 160lbs (73kg) person is 27% lighter than a 220lbs (100kg) paddler, and likewise a 130lbs (59kg) paddler is 19% smaller than a 160lbs paddler.

The height difference from S to M to L is about a quater of the weight difference. If you direct scale the boat up for the weight increase, it's too long for the height increase, and vice versa.

This means that the boats ability to carry a heavier or lighter paddler is very different from its need to carry a taller or shorter paddler, and so I adjust the designs accordingly, increasing its load carrying capacity much more than it's height fitting capacity from M to L, and the inverse from M to S.

It's much more work of course as all the data has to be calculated for three totally different designs, not just once and then scaled up and down, but the end result is much better suited for the paddlers.
