Ultimate stability and rugged simplicity in a kayak that makes fishing and exploring fun.
The Perception Striker 11.5 kayak’s extremely stable 11-foot-6 design makes fishing and cruising fun for any ability. This roomy sit-on-top is drier than comparable models and offers the freedom to sit low, sit high, or stand for optimal paddling and casting comfort. The 500 lb. capacity rating means maximum room for you and your gear. Ready to fish, it includes large rear storage, two dry storage zones, four molded-in rod holders, a molded-in ruler, and paddle mounts for hands-free fishing.
The Striker’s spacious cockpit offers simplicity and freedom that focuses on comfort. Its unique design lets you position yourself three ways for maximum comfort no matter what you’re doing. Paddle easily from the low seat for enhanced stability and efficiency, fish from the high seat, or stand up and cast, the choice is yours. There’s even a built-in strap to keep you steady while changing positions.
Stability & Performance
The Striker is perfect for beginner to intermediate paddlers by offering ultimate stability and high weight capacity in a design that keeps you drier than comparable sit-on-top models. Its smooth straight-tracking tri-hull makes it surprisingly quick and easy to maneuver for effortless fishing and cruising.
Standing up while fishing calm waters is easy thanks to the stand-up assist strap located in front of the seat.
Features & Safety
The Striker is engineered and tested to be among the safest kayaks available with built-in buoyancy and stability that lets you relax on the water. Its incredible 500 lb. weight capacity improves stability even further. Ready to fish right out of the box, it focuses on the features that matter most. These include a large open storage zone in the back, dry storage hatches in the cockpit and bow, four molded-in rod holders, a molded-in ruler, and multiple paddle mounts for hands-free fishing.
Like all Perception kayaks, the Striker is designed for maximum durability and optimized weight. This is the result of its high-density polyethylene and one-piece roto-molded construction that provides exceptional UV, impact, and abrasion-resistance. Ocean and saltwater-optimized hardware and finishes prevent corrosion for long-lasting performance.
