VTEK™ Hydrus GT ILS Surfski **NEW!**




Made exclusively for ICON by NELO.


We've partnered with world-leading racing kayak manufacturers, NELO, to produce an exciting new ICON ILS construction – the new VTEK!

The VTEK construction differs from standard models in that it uses the very latest vacuum heat-cured laminating technology, producing a stronger, super-stiff and greatly refined ILS ski. 

Initially, the Hydrus GT is the first model to be delivered with this special construction, but we expect to extend VTEK to the Hydrus Elite and other models in the future.

ICON recommended for:

• ILS-Spec Surfski competition
• Ocean Surfski competition


With its more stable hull, the Hydrus GT gives developing paddlers the stability required for greater paddling efficiency and increased confidence, especially in surf and choppy conditions. The new VTEK construction now adds enhanced performance at this level!
