 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 75 and 100kgs
  • You need the most versatile possible touring kayak
  • Paddlers of varying weights might share this kayak
  • You prefer speed and good handling in waves combined with a big cockpit
