The Kanghua KX is an elite range of boats developed with technical input from Leander Club, which has been using Kanghua boats since 2015.
Kanghua has benefited enormously from the detailed feedback provided by Leander coaches and athletes over the past five years and has used this to shape and develop its top, elite-level KX range.
The first of these new, high-performing boats have been delivered to Leander Club and will be followed by more as their current Kanghua fleet is replaced.
Early feedback has been exceptional. Chief Coach Mark Banks says: ‘Leander Club and Kanghua UK have a great working relationship and we can see real improvements in this new generation of Kanghua boats. They are now genuinely a top-class boat manufacturer.’
We are very excited to see the Kanghua KX in action when racing resumes. In the hands of Leander athletes, Kanghua has enjoyed numerous wins in past seasons, including the Fawley Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta in 2019.
The technical improvements resulting from Leander Club’s feedback, benefit all ranges of Kanghua boats, from the KX to the entry-level Shadow, as modifications are incorporated across the board.
