Details

  • Designed for those ready to expand their skills, the Expression 11.5 effectively bridges the gap between a fun, maneuverable day-tripping kayak and a predictable touring model
  • 11 ft. 7 in. model is lighter, more maneuverable, and easier to handle than its 15 ft. counterpart, and it's much easier to load on top of your car
  • Rigid polyethylene hull withstands years of use without the need for maintenance
  • Very stable, touring-style hull offers excellent versatility; great for those seeking a boat for everything from light ocean swells to local lakes
  • Peaked deck and upswept bow sheds water quickly and enhances speed, and progressive rocker enhances handling
  • Added room in the cockpit and thighbraces enhance confidence in beginning paddlers
  • Zone DLX seat features a foam-encased pocket that cradles the lower back
  • Seat back adjusts forward and backward and up and down; leg lifters offer additional support if needed
  • Backrest may be raised by pulling strap in front of seat forward or by pushing the button on front of seat to lower
  • Leg lifters raise seat pan to increase support and take pressure of the ankles
  • Padded foam thighbraces may be repositioned to personalize cockpit for performance or comfort
  • Slidelock footbraces are easy to adjust from inside the boat; simply raise the black plastic rod to unlock and slide footbrace into desired position
  • Fully bulkheaded stern hatch provides dry cargo storage
  • Cockpit-deployable skeg enhances tracking in rough water and windy conditions; sliding skeg controls are located on left side of cockpit
  • Deck rigging on bow and stern lets you stash items you'll want readily available such as a bilge pump, extra paddle and map with weatherproof case, all not included
  • Soft-to-the-touch carry handles at bow and stern make trips from the water easy; unlike hard, plastic handles, the soft-touch handles are easy on cold, paddle-weary hands
  • Perception Expression 11.5 kayak with skeg weighs approximately 44 lbs.

Made in USA.
