Large storage compartments will absorb enough gear and water for long, unsupported expeditions. Cockpits are large and easy to pad out for a custom fit. The big, comfortable cockpit is an ideal spot to spend a lazy afternoon if multi-week expeditions aren't your speed.

  • You weigh between 45kg to 75kg and your shoe size is 10 (US) or less
  • You want a traditional touring kayak with excellent handling and a comfortable kayak
  • You want nimble handling without excessive windage
  • You prefer high primary stability
