The best selling whitewater kayak ev-er.

Go ahead, look it up – we’ll wait. A stable, forgiving design makes the RPM great for beginners who want a versatile river runner and intro playboat. Edgy carving performance keeps you happy and solid front and back surfs with dynamic stern squirts don’t hurt either. Comes with a thermoformed seat and adjustable backband. This one’s made for the classic paddler.

Excellent WW starter

About the reviewer


Rec & Sea kayaker, want to start WW again.

Short term ownership, too heavy for this model. Test trial only.

Review


Most has already been written, good starter, easy to roll, paddler needs to be well below the recommended weight range to effectively use it.

Conclusion


Liked it very much, looking to buy it's big brother the Max.
