View Typical Touring Kayak Construction
The Value construction, also called the Club version, got its name simply because it is the most economical construction option we offer. It is also our heaviest construction, yet comparable to most competitors’ standard boats.
The Performance construction is a composite hybrid. We consider it to be the best value in the industry. Epic Performance kayaks are significantly lighter than the competition’s equivalent products, yet are offered at a comparable price point.
The Ultra construction is very light and popular with the fitness and racing paddlers. It is light, stiff, and extremely strong in the water. Our Ultra disclaimer states that while stronger in the water than the Value and Performance lay-ups, the Ultra is more susceptible to impact damage and requires more care when handling.
The Elite construction is extremely light and stiff, a step up from the Ultra lay-up, but with similar durability. Being both lightweight and strong are priority number one for these boats, perfect cosmetic finishes cannot be expected.
The Super Elite was the first Elite construction, and is the lightest and strongest of all the lay-ups. All the stops have been pulled out to make these the lightest surf skis on the market. Being both lightweight and strong are priority number one for these boats, perfect cosmetic finishes cannot be expected.
