Perception Expression 14

The Perception Expression 14 has been a favourite with the Canoe Shops Group for some time with its good stability and forward speed without compromising on manoeuvrability. The Expression 14 is suited to the smaller paddler, we find the taller and bigger paddler should look at the Expression 15.

This kayak is ideal if you’re looking at enjoying leisurely trips up and down your local river or canal, right through to those longer days out in the harbour or out at sea. It’s fully packed with everything you need for touring trips such as two hatches for ample storage, adjustable thigh braces and retractable skeg to help with tracking and adjustable foot rests. Those uncomfortable days out will be a thing of the past.

There are two different outfitting’s available for the Perception Expression 14: DLX & EXP

The DLX Backrest system is 'High-Backed' and easily raises or lowers to supply lower lumber support. This system is compatible with most touring spraydeck's. Allowing maximum back-support, ideal for those longer days on the water.

The EXP Backrest is a low-style traditional backrest, allowing more experienced paddlers to lie on the back deck for Eskimo Rolls and also adopt a more relaxed paddling position if required.
