Aquatherm Marathon/Sprint Deck
- Lightness and flexibility of Aquatherm fabric facilitates a great paddling technique, making trunk rotation easy for optimum power transfer.
- Deck sheds water easily, unlike neoprene it doesn’t get waterlogged and heavy
- Tight fitting with an adjuster cord eliminating the likelihood of water pooling
- Two styles – with and without a central zip
- One size, adjustable waist.
About Aquatherm: The fabric’s outer surface is abrasion resistant, has optimum stretch with instant memory return. There is 80% less volume and weight compared with traditional neoprene products without compromising performance. It is comfortable, durable, supple, UV stable, waterproof and fast drying.
Fitting: We can make decks to fit virtually any size of kayak and keep a number of standard boat cockpit sizes, but please check with us. If your boat is more unusual, then we may need you to trace the outer edge of your cockpit and mark on your seat position on newspaper then mail it to us.

I have the non zip version, I can say its the best deck I have used on a racing boat. Its light, warm, waterproof and easy to get on and off the cockpit. Great buy
I have been training many years with standard sprint decks in winter. The water can be a bit choppy here on the lake of Constance (Switzerland). In winter, this means training with wet and cold knees. The Reed deck is all that I hoped it would be. It keeps me dry and warm and sits perfectly on the cockpit of my marathon kayak. Thanks, Reed team!

I use this every day in the winter and absolutely love it because it’s:
Super dry and stretchy.
Washes well in the machine with the rest of my kit in non-bio powder.
Still waterproof after a couple of years’ winter use.
Reed developed this deck with racing paddlers & has designed it to suit us.

This is like the white deck I have been using for the last couple of years. It’s lightweight, comfortable and stretchy.
