The award-winning Perception Expression series of sit-in kayaks combine the forgiving handling and stability expected of a touring design with the speed and storage of an expedition kayak. Spacious dry storage means it’s capable of multi-day journeys, yet still fast, fun, and agile for simple daytrips.
The 14.5 model’s versatile 14-foot-6 design offers an unbeatable blend of performance and comfort. The sit-in cockpit is sized to accommodate small to medium paddlers. Its superior stability is perfect for beginners, while experienced paddlers will enjoy its speed and handling. The longer length adds even more speed and stability, while also providing expedition-grade dry storage for multi-day adventures. Long days and overnights are a pleasure thanks to the deluxe comfort of a six-way adjustable seat.
Proudly designed, molded and hand-assembled in the USA, the Expression 14.5 kayak is backed by a 5-Year Warranty.
