Extractions: The newest Van Dusen K1 - The Mohawk Design History In 1986, the United States Canoe and Kayak Team (USCKT) invited us to design and manufacture a new fleet of flatwater kayaks and canoes for the 1988 Olympic Games. Our first kayak designs, the Eagle and the Falcon, helped Greg Barton and Norman Bellingham win the first World Championship and Olympic gold medals in US paddling history. Our kayaks and canoes are now being raced by the entire USCKT and international competitors from Argentina, Australia, Austria, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. We are proud that our products help these athletes achieve victory on the race course. We hope your new Van Dusen racing boat will help you achieve your own competitive goals. Success in building racing boats, like success in paddling, is the result of hard work and dedication to excellence. We believe our kayaks and canoes are the best-designed and best-constructed racing boats available anywhere in the world today, and we believe they offer you a substantial competitive advantage due to their sleek design, responsiveness, light weight, and strength. Hydrodynamic tests conducted for the US Olympic Sports and Technology Committee have confirmed the superiority of our boats over comparable US and European models. The success of our boats on the race course, and in the laboratory, is the result of several important factors.
