The Epic 18X Sport is designed for intermediate to advanced touring paddlers seeking a distinct edge in a high-performance kayak. Paddlers find the stability and sleek, efficient shape of the 18X Sport to allow them to cover long distances with exceptional ease and speed, and that it performs great in rough water conditions.
In addition to all the features that come standard on an Epic, the 18X Sport includes Smart Track steering system, adjustable seat (tools required), a day hatch, large storage capacity, and dramatic front deck cutaways for a closer, more efficient stroke.
