I tested this boat 1 week and after the first 30 minutes, I knew that I would love it ;-) With this boat, I can do whatever I want, it will follow smoothly, precisely and safely (and of course very fastly). I think it's the perfect kayak for anybody with the same height/weight. Compared to the salto, I need 50% less effort to move the boat and I can enjoy my paddling at 200%. Salto evo was good for my first steps because it removed the fear I had. Now that I'm more confortable on the water, the remix59 is perfect for the next steps and I feel as much safe as with the salto evo... I can't wait for my order to be shipped (have to be patient as living in Switzerland...) Thanks liquidlogic for making this awesome boat.

Salto evolution by a beginner
About the reviewer I started the kayak 1 year ago. Test environment Class 1-2-3 river Review I was looking for a good kayak for beginner and not as big as the prijon hercules as I am a light weight paddler. I have a prijon fly which seems to difficult for me now so the salto evolution is a good middle between hercules and fly and really secure for beginner or large volumes. Conclusion Easy to roll (even if the boat forgives many errors) and almost as good as the 2001 version which I tested and loved (surely even better). I think it's one of the best quality/price boat with large volume for anybody looking for an allround secure and beautiful boat (I have the orange one). Even if I'm right now only a beginner, experts told me that the boat is perfect for better paddlers, thus I'll be able to enjoy the boat for the next 10 years.
