The Epic 18X Sport is designed, like the 18X, for intermediate to advanced touring paddlers seeking a distinct edge in a high-performance kayak. Paddlers find the increased stability and sleek, efficient shape of the 18X 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 the advanced Epic Track Master™ steering system and now the latest Epic Track Master Plus with carbon retractable rudder fin for better steering control, an adjustable seat, large storage capacity, and front deck cutaways for a closer, more efficient stroke. While the 18X and 18X Sport beam widths are equivalent, the waterline width of the 18X Sport is approximately 1.5 cm wider than the 18X.
