The Venture Capella is a fast touring kayak that features a single layer polyethylene construction. It is available in two different sizes, this achieves the optimum levels of performance and fit for the paddler.

Venture Kayaks has "inherited" the Capella sea kayak from their alternative brand P & H Sea Kayaks, it was under the P & H brand that the Capella earnt its heritage.

The Capella features a single layer polyethylene construction which is tough and durable, it also incorporates a fast hull design that offers reasonable levels of stability. The rear retractable kayak skeg, then enhances this. The cockpit on the Capella is well thought about, it has a large comfortable seat that also incorporates an adjustable kayak backrest. The thigh braces are well defined to offer plenty of control and are also adjustable to achieve the perfect levels of support and fit. There is also a set of adjustable kayak footrests that offer good support. The deck design of the Capella is packed with great features also, towards the front of the kayak there is a recess that is suitable for a Silva 70P. The deck also features a full set of kayak deck elastics, a great safety feature. The final feature of the kayak deck design is the 3 hatch configuration. The front hatch has a 24cm diameter, the round rear day hatch has a 20cm diameter and the large ova rear hatch measure in at 42cm x 30cm.

February Staff Newsletter

February was a busy month in the shop. As well as a number of reps coming to see us, and a number of visits to make, we also attended the Run, Walk, Crawl Brecon to Cardiff Ultra, and hosted a climbing shoe demo with Tenaya at local bouldering wall Spot Climbing. We still managed to get out, and members of Team Up and Under could be found in many parts of the UK; including in the Brecon Beacons, the Lakes, South Downs, Scotland, as well as further afield in Chamonix and George L still in Thailand.
