Perception Expression 14 & 15
Graceful and stylish lines immediately catch your eye and it's not just the looks that are stunning. The handling offers all the performance you demand for trips and true control in any conditions, whilst the Zone outfitting and two size options provide optimum comfort with an outstanding fit. Both of these models are ideal for novice paddlers as they are stable enough to take your first steps in while offering a design that will let you learn advanced paddling techniques when you are ready to progress.
The smooth, sleek and predictable nature of the Expression 14 and 15 is perfect for touring on coastal waters, estuaries, lakes and rivers. They are both long enough to be efficient to paddle and provide satisfying speed, they also handle chop with ease. The hull design revels in the chance to play the surf back to shore.
The spring loaded TruTrack skeg is quickly available to assist you with straight line tracking when the wind or currents are unkind. Simply release the skeg and you will feel the kayay start to lock into the course you want to paddle.
Seating Options: The Expression 14 and 15 are available with either the standard DLX backrest, or the low-style EXP backband. The DLX is most popular and is best for recreational paddlers who want comfort whilst touring. Club paddlers who may be practicing rolling the kayak and conducting self-rescue drills may benefit from the lower backband to allow you to lay over the back deck for easier rolling.
