Storm Chaser C-1 (Large - Extra Large):

 

Price:

$2059

Redesigned for 2019, the new Storm Chaser L-XL is an improved version of the original classic. The key changes include: 1/4" additional width, 1/4" less depth with shallower ends, a flatter hull under the end of the bow, and a resized cockpit that has been shrunk and reproportioned a bit.

These minor refinements update the original 2013 Storm Chaser to better match the other boats in our "Storm" family of designs that already have these enhancements.

As a final benefit, all of our Storm Chaser C-1 sizes and our Storm Giant C-2 now utilize the same interchangeable custom Snap Dragon C-1 skirt.

The Storm Chaser features a wide forgiving semi-plane-ing hull with a highly rockered profile that spins in an instant - getting you where you want to go - fast! It is suitable for creeking and general river running alike and our kevlar/carbon/epoxy construction means that it can take a beating and yet weighs only around 24.5 lbs when fully outfitted.

While generally recommended for paddlers over 200 lbs, the Storm Chaser L-XL is also suitable for smaller paddlers wanting extra stability or those seeking an easy transition from open boat to C-1.

Here are some of the features of the L-XL version of the Storm Chaser:

  • primary construction: kevlar/epoxy with rib system reinforcement.
  • deck: carbon reinforced to impart stiffness and structure.
  • hull: carbon/kevlar hybrid reinforced to balance impact and stiffness.
  • triple seamed for toughness.
  • minicell pillars and carbon pillar guides.
  • carbon bow shock absorber.
  • stainless steel security lock-down loop and accessory attachment point.
  • roomy cockpit - safe and easy entry and exit for larger paddlers.
  • four light but tough and beefy grab loops.

See our C-1 Outfitting Selection Guide, Accessories Page, and C-1 Price Summary to choose the parts, options and installation that are right for you.

For those willing to trade-off extra stability for a sportier narrow hull, check out the Storm Chaser S-M.
