Cobra Kayaks 

COBRA PLAY EVOLUTION SLS - Introducing the revolutionary Cobra Evolution Super Light Series. Every Cobra Kayak that carries this badge tells you that the kayak it’s proudly mounted on will be one of the lightest in its class.

Because Cobra’s unique ‘Feather Cell Technology’ moulding technique mimics the lightweight yet highly rigid and robust cell structure of a feather to produce a remarkably lightweight yet extremely tough and durable craft.

With all the extra manoeuvrability, agility and ease of handling that comes with a low weight hull. More fun, more safety, more performance.

The Cobra Play is one of our bestselling single SOT kayaks so it is no wonder that Cobra decided to make this the first model in the series to become available in the Superlight construction.

COBRA PLAY - A perfect complement to the Cobra Explorer and Cobra Navigator, this model is true to its namesake. The Cobra Play is fun and easy to use for smaller, shorter paddlers and kids. Since it is so lightweight and compact, it is simple to transport, load and unload and can be quickly launched and easily manoeuvred. Stability is provided by a shallow V-shaped hull that enhances manoeuvrability and tracking. The clean deck design, comfortable cockpit area and rounded ergonomic shapes are un intimidating. Pictured with optional paddle, backrest, hatches and leg straps.
