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 the advanced Epic Track Master™ steering system, a day hatch, an adjustable seat, large storage capacity, and front deck cutaways for a closer, more efficient stroke. While the 18X Sport and the 18X share the same overall width and length, the 18X Sport is .75" wider when measured at the 4" waterline.
