Sea kayaks have become more and more popular in races such as the Coast to Coast, and Barracuda have recognised this and created a kayak to suit the needs of the recreational racer. The Enigma is great for training in as well as on race day. Even if you have no plans for racing, the Enigma is the logical choice for those who paddle for fitness.
Like all Barracuda kayaks, this is vacuum thermo-formed plastic, making the kayak reasonably light while still retaining enough stiffness to allow it to perform.
If you are planning on taking part in the Coast to Coast, and will do a lot of training on the sea, the Enigma makes total sense. Compared to a multisport kayak, a sea kayak is a much safer option when paddling on the sea. Plus, you also have a sea kayak you can use after the race. The Barracuda Beachcomber started the trend towards using sea kayaks in multisport races. The Enigma, at 5.2m long, is longer, slightly narrower and has less rocker than the Beachcomber so is able to move through the water more quickly.
