Perception Expression 15


The Perception Expression 15 has a slightly faster forward speed and provides a little more stability than the smaller 14 model. It also has a higher load capacity. The Expression 15 suits larger paddlers and those who plan to paddle on longer trips


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, 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 outfittings available for the Perception Expression 15: 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.
