The Empower is a full bodied sea kayak made for long trips and expeditions. The Empower kayak is surprisingly agile despite its length, has a very nice glide and it handles almost like a play boat when put on edge.
The Empower kayak has soft chines and a long water line. The hull’s profile is rounded and the rocker is moderate to handle big seas. The four hatches are all beautifully recessed into the deck and packs with ease for extended trips or just for a weekend getaway. The knee hatch holds gear like an VHF radio or cell phone and small water bottle. The day hatch has lots of room for other stuff needed while at sea.

Zegul product range is targeted for more advanced and dedicated paddlers. Zegul also features different styles of kayaks like fast racing boats, play boats and of course the famous Greenland series. Quality is reflected in every single detail. Carefully designed and tested hulls offer excellent performance. Sleek lines and crocodile pattern on kayak decks give a really distinctive look to all Zegul models. These high-end kayaks are built with only the most innovative and high-tech materials.
This very versatile construction is built using vacuum technology, which ensures the best weight/strength ratio. This material layup increases durability and stiffness of the kayak, absorbing even less energy during paddling and withstanding the most challenging environments.
All ZEGUL ACORE built kayaks are equipped with sandwich reinforced keel area ensuring scratch and impact strength. Hull and deck are joined using internally both fi berglass and aramide taping, externally a very robust aramide taping. All decks are built in sandwich construction (available for all Zegul kayak models).
We at Zegul took the well known, Arrow kayaks developed Rock Solid construction and improved it even further. It certainly wasn’t an easy task. Mr. Ilcus from Arrow kayaks was a part of the R&D team and carefully inspected all the layers at our facilities. After discussion and testing de decided to add another layer of glass/kevlar, making the laminate even stronger and stiffer.
The positioning of the pure kevlar keel strip was modifi ed to give even better results. We also made improvements on the outer fi nish of the keel strip for a smoother and more even result. After thorough tests we are convinced that it is a success!
Kayaks built with this method are fi nished with a clear carbon hull, which takes years of experience to be done correctly From 2012 season we have launched a new 3 dimensional carbon fabric into this construction, giving even tougher and stiffer kayaks. The ZEGUL 3D C-CORE kayaks are built using full HD LRA core lay-up in the kayak hulls.
This production method combines vacuum infusion technology with high performance properties of special marine grade epoxy resin and several types of carbon fi ber, carbon/aramide and glass multiaxial fabrics to create probably the highest quality carbon core built kayaks in the industry. These kayaks are even more versatile than the regular carbon/aramide and carbon built kayaks on the market.
This is the lightest lay-up available.
