18X DOUBLE

The 18X double has been optimized to give intermediate to advanced touring paddlers a distinct edge in high-performance double sea kayaking. With aggressive cutaways to improve stroke performance, the 18X Double offers paddlers a sleek, efficient shape with a long waterline, providing exceptional speed.

 

The 18X Double includes adjustable seats and footboards for both paddlers, a kickup rudder (controlled by front paddler) which can also be uphauled when needed, and bow/stern carry handles.

 

For storage, it features large bow and stern storage hatches with generous capacity, a large day hatch, as well as two easily accessible small stowage compartments forward of each paddler which can be accessed on the move. These features make the Epic 18X Double the perfect expedition, long distance, or day touring kayak.

 

Proficient paddlers will enjoy taking the 18X Double to its limit or just have fun introducing beginners or friends to paddling. The 18X Double offers the ultimate tandem touring kayak experience.
