Superior kayak building technology

In addition to exceptional affordability, Pelican kayaks offer unsurpassed performance and durability. Since 1968, the company has developed several exclusive boat building materials, including RAM-X ™, a multi-layer material that has become the benchmark of quality in the industry for its high impact-resistance, its ability to regain its initial shape after a violent impact and its low-maintenance, UV-protected exterior finish.

Pelican is also the only North American kayak manufacturer to use Twin Sheet Thermoforming (TST) technology. This technology allows the company to use higher grades of plastic, resulting in stiffer, lighter, more durable products. The combination of Pelican’s proprietary materials with the TST process results in a lightweight kayak that offers unparalleled rigidity, exceptional impact and breakage resistance and superior safety.


Environmentally responsible

As a company that promotes enjoyment of the great outdoors, Pelican remains firmly committed to protecting the environment. The company recycles 99.9% of the scrap created during the manufacturing process and uses post-industrial recycled plastic in over half of the boats they produce. In addition, Pelican’s 430,000 square foot North American factory uses specially designed air ducts to redirect the heat released by ovens during the molding process to heat the entire facility during the winter months.

Pelican Kayaks are available at authorized retailers throughout North America. To learn more about Pelican International, please visit http://www.pelicansport.com/
