Which Perception Sit Inside Kayak is right for me?
The first question you need to ask is whether you would like a solo (one person) or tandem (two person) kayak. The second question is what kind of paddling you want to do. If you are planning on going sea kayaking around the UK or further afield you need a long boat such as the Essence or the Tandem Horizon. If you're interested in shorter trips further inland the Expression or the Tandem Prodigy II would be ideal. Or if you just want a boat to take out on a lake or canal or a short river trip then the Carolina or the Tandem Vista might be right for you.
The Solo Range
I just want to get out on the water - The Carolina
Quick, true tracking hull combines a V-shaped bow and stern for excellent directional stability. Add soft chines and a shallower profile under the cockpit area and you have a design that not only paddles phenomenally but is equally as stable, forgiving and easy to handle.
A roomy cockpit provides the chance to relax on easier waters and instils confidence to take on greater challenges. The Carolina 14 with its ample storage space carries all the equipment you need wherever you set your boundaries.
I want to go touring - The Expression
Scenic lakes and coastal swells can be equally exhilarating... no matter where your aspirations lie, if you want to experience them to the full, the Expression range will take you there. Packed with charisma and boasting exceptional traits for kayaks of their size, they'll fuel your passion for paddling with fast acceleration and an impressive top speed. Maximum forward efficiency is balanced with responsive control which will inspire you to explore new waters.
I want to explore the coast - The Essence
A modern hull design incorporates a strong V-shaped bow and stern with defined chines to provide true directional stability and splendid edge control. Predictable handling, manoeuvrability and impressive forward speed gives paddlers all the performance needed for that great expedition. Good initial and secondary stability will allow you to take your sea touring experiences to new levels, whether you are an expert or developing your paddling skills.
The Tandem Range
We want to do a bit of everything - The Vista
This fast and efficient open cockpit tandem has a streamlined profile that glides smoothly across the water. Its renowned performance is complimented by a spacious cockpit that accommodates a variety of paddler combinations with space to spare for a small passenger or the family pet. A generous carrying capacity and a rear compartment provide room for you to load up for a journey of a life time.
We want to go exploring inland - The Prodigy II
A tandem kayak built with one goal in mind – pure fun. A great tandem is more than a solo kayak with an extra seat, its a unique experience in performance, design and comfort with families and partners in mind. The Prodigy II delivers on the promise with a rocker profile focused on speed, tracking and minimal noise when paddling through flatwater and light currents.
We want to explore the coast - Horizon
This versatile twin-cockpit tandem kayak is perfect for either short trips or multi-day expeditions. The long waterline provides excellent directional stability yet the Horizon is still nimble enough for inland adventures. A high volume bow gives a dry ride even in choppy waters, as it climbs over waves and deflects spray from the cockpit areas.
