*All lifejackets and buoyancy aids for sale in the EU must be CE-marked. The CE mark shows that the product is tested and approved to EU standards. These standards divide the products into different Newton classes. Each Newton class is a European standard with its own designated number, e.g. EN393.
Newton is the unit for force and the abbreviation for it is N. An adult needs 20-30N of buoyancy to float, with or without clothing. A 50N buoyancy aid will therefore keep you afloat with a great safety margin. However if you wish to be turned over in the water, you will need a greater force, i.e. more Newtons.
For the second time our Advanced Elements kayaks (Sports Model) have travelled right across Australia from Perth in Western Australia to East Gippsland in the far East of Victoria, the Indian Ocean to the Pacific.
