Default Gemini weight & speed

How much does a Gemini weigh? That is not shown under the "Product" menu.

The 29 kt speed by riders who were not experienced on tandems is really interesting. A heavyweight rider appears to have an advantage in getting top speeds on speed needles. Could two riders on a wide tandem be faster? Could a wide tandem make it easier for average riders to get high speeds?

Hi Del,

I just got the official production average weight through from the factory and it's 22.83 kg. I'll get the web page updated too.

Thank you, Tiesda. That is less weight than most tandam kayaks and some solo kayaks. And less than some late 70's and early 80's sailboards (such as the Magnum 370 I once had).

Wow. That puts Roger and my 'record' of 24.7mph in the dumpster! (We were on 4.8 Huckers.)
