The Lightning Strike HD encompasses the ultimate combination of performance, durability and outfitting options. Lightning Kayaks are made of super linear HDPE and utilizes a tri-hull design which offers unparalleled stability. The aluminum frame seat comes with a comfortable breathable padded mesh fabric and 3 seat positions to accommodate kayakers of all sizes. The Strike HD comes standard with custom MarineMat flooring system to provide a cushioned area to stand while on the water. The Strike HD features a large rear tank well and two hatches, giving you plenty of storage for a picnic on the beach or an overnight camping trip with the family.
The Strike HD utilizes our Freedom Drive propulsion system. The Freedom Drive simply drops into a pair of secure drive locks, and with a push of the feet, the fins move side-to-side and propel you forward. This side-to-side movement mimics how a penguin’s wings allow it to glide through the water. We designed a recess in the hull to allow the Freedom Drive’s fins to tuck up and out of the way, allowing for almost zero draft in shallow water, such as when you’re launching or landing.
We designed the Strike from the ground up by combining our favorite design features in the kayak industry and improving on the common shortcomings.
