The LASER is a craft that can navigate in almost any water condition. Former Canadian National Team member Keith Mercer says: “I love my Laser, I never have to miss a workout because of the water conditions.” Lou Lukanovich, former 2-time Canadian Olympic Canoe/Kayak coach, adapted various design principles to develop the LASER.
This craft cuts across all racing disciplines, a development K-1 for Sprint Racing, a K-1 for Marathon Racing and an elite K-1 for Adventure Racing. The Laser uses the same principles and specifications as the elite sport's kayaks but offers a U-hull shape that is flatter along the bottom allowing the novice to gain balance quickly while developing his technique. Looks and feels like an elite racing boat but provides the stability a novice of any age can quickly master.
The Laser has won 13 medals at the 2005 World Master Games in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and 3 medals at the 2005 edition of the Canadian Masters, held in Montreal, QC, Canada
