With a typical kayak weight is displaced
on a single axis from a single fulcrum that
is IN-LINE with the vessels axis-role and
curved shape – thus encouraging the
vessel to role and tip when weight shifts
from one side to another. As weight
shifts, the vessel more easily roles
on the axis of the in-line fulcrum.
SHIFTING WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION
Inherent in the Raptor design is a special wave breaking bow
that displaces water and weight by splitting it into two aft
stabilizing wave tracks. Now, this creation of two separate axis and two separate fulcrums consistently encourages the
vessel to return to it's former position when weight is shifted from one axis-role to another. IE: As weight shifts to one fulcrum, the vessel discourages a potential role because the apposing fulcrum is sharing it's common end-point at the bow– summoning the vessel back to it’s gravitational connection with the water– rather than giving it permission to role .
