Very much function rather than form. A ‘nose ring’ is a very strong attachment point which can be used for towing, rescue and hanging onto the kayak in rough conditions. The solid bow section of the kayak is drilled and flow coated to create a smooth attachment point. A simple loop of 6mm / 1/4″ line is fitted as standard. However, other items such as a toggle, anchor trolley or sail stay could be attached instead.
