The Zen is the Swiss Army Knife of high-performance paddling. First and foremost, it’s fast. Really fast. The length to width ratio is such that it can mix it up with the elite and competitive skis with confidence. The slightly shorter length reduces wetted surface area; the benefit being exceedingly quick acceleration.
Second is the stability. The Zen is very stable for a ski of this performance level. To go fast you need to be able to apply power. To apply power you need a platform that is confidence inspiring, letting you focus on maximum efficiency. The primary stability in the Zen lets you dig deep when you need to.
Thirdly, the Zen features the Gen3 ergonomics that really let you perform at your best. Our footboard system adjusts in 5 mm increments, allowing you to find the exact position that fits you perfectly. The lower hump under the knees offers unrestricted leg drive, and the seat height is comfortably above the footwell, putting the paddler in a strong position.
Carry handles on the side of the Zen make for easy handling off the water. The DeBrito bailer in the footwell evacuates any water with a flick from your heel.
