Our best-selling sit-on-top just got better … way better! We kept everything that made the Tribe one of the most dependable and versatile kayaks of all time and added some major modern improvements.
Thanks to a new high-back frame seatback, the Tribes are now even more comfortable with increased support and cushioning. Plus, this new seatback takes relaxation to the next level offering infinitely adjustable recline positions, creating the ultimate lounge to kick back, relax and catch some rays while floating about. Lightweight and fully stackable, with a plethora of handles, getting this kayak to the water is a total breeze. Affordable, easy-going, and great looking, the Tribe performs terrifically in light surf, lazy rivers and flat water.
Available in 3 sizes: 9.5 and 11.5-foot solo models, and a 13.5-foot tandem option. Round up your tribe and have fun on the water in the all-new Perception Tribe!
