Perception Expression 11

The Expression 11 is a sleek crossover between a recreational and touring kayak, it features a stable and manoeuvrable design that is built to handle a multitude of water environments from lakes, ponds and bays, to slow rivers and gentle coastal waters.

Designed with beginner to intermediate paddlers in mind the paddling performance builds confidence and skill and is the ideal stepping stone into the world of touring. The hull design of the Expression 11 is a perfect balance of overall stability without sacrificing manoeuvrability. The shorter length is more user-friendly for people who are developing their paddling skills. The compact design is also great for car topping and storage.

The Perception Expression 11 includes the TruTrack skeg system which is an easy to deploy skeg which increases forward paddling performance in windy or choppy conditions. Adjustable padded thigh braces provide reassuring connectivity between paddler and hull to ensure good control on the water. The up-swept bow is designed to help ride over chop and shed water for a drier ride. The cockpit size is easy to enter and exit and gives paddlers room to move freely, while the ergonomically engineered Zone outfitting provides the kind of comfort needed for a long day on the water.
