For more than 30 years Composite Engineering, has been helping athletes all over the world capture medals in international competition.
Our carbon composite rowing shells and flatwater sprint kayaks are custom designed by naval architect, Ted Van Dusen, Ph.D, who is recognized worldwide as a leader in the design, engineering and production of elite racing products. Our latest kayak creation is the Mohican, an unlimited class, open and flat water, racing kayak. The Mohican is a hybrid design combining elements of ICF Olympic flatwater designs, and open water surf skis.
We are also a custom builder of triaxial carbon spars, stayed, unstayed, or semistayed, including circular, oval, D-shaped, complex furling, and wing masts.
