The V10L gives paddlers the same performance, speed, handling, ergonomics and stability as the V10, but with a design optimized for paddlers weighing less than 75 kg (165 lbs).
Ergonomically, the new V10L has the narrowest width at the stroke catch of all Epic surfskis (even narrower than V14), giving the paddler more comfort and ease in the stroke.
The cockpit has a lower hump under the knees and adjusts to fit paddlers with a wider range of leg lengths. It will fit most paddlers between 4'10" and 6'2" (1.47 to 1.88 m). The seat is a perfect fit for most paddlers in the average size range while shaped so that thinner paddlers will also feel well connected to the boat.
The V10L has been truly optimized for paddlers 165 lbs (75 kg) and under, however it can also be paddled by those up to 198 lbs (90 kg) in flat water. (NOTE: Paddlers over or 176 lbs or 80 kg will notice reduced stability and a decrease in rough water performance compared to the new V10, so they will be far better served by the new V10).
The V10L uses all of the legendary design comforts. The popular new Epic designed and manufactured bailer is now standard on all Epic surfskis.
The new V10L is the boat of choice for lighter paddlers in all conditions. Test one at your local Epic Kayaks dealer, Epic Kayaks test center, with an Epic expert or at an Epic demo event or clinic.
