Buran 488 is a new day trip kayak, specially developed two large rowers. It is designed according to three requirements: plenty of space in the cockpit, high stability and that it should be just as easy to handle as Buran 430.
The cockpit is high and wide with plenty of legroom and both good height and width at the feet. The cockpit opening is also long and wide so it is easy to get into the kayak, also with long or slightly stiff legs.
The bottom is almost flat under the seat and the sides bend with gradually sharp knee bends against the bow and stern. Together, it gives a very stable kayak, also for tall rowers over 2 meters.
The Buran 488 is designed with a sharp, concave stem and slim vertical hedge. It cuts the waves in a slightly upward sliding direction and the vertical hedge provides a very directional kayak. There is good sliding and good balance in the kayak.
Buran 488 has a high front deck with water bottle and other small items and submerged package week. The rear deck is flat with a submerged package week and can be used for positioning eg. kayak cart and paddle float.
Buran 488 is a real European: specified by Leisure Jackets, designed by Andrea Piutti Consulting, London, tested by Ozone Kayak, Italy and produced by RotoAttivo, Slovenia with Deckfittings and hatches from KayakGear in Barcelona.
