Riot Quest Review

About the reviewer

Have been kayaking for 4 years. Own a Pamlico 140

Test environment

Calm, Flat

Review

Performance wise, this is the worst kayak I've tried. I feel guilty for bashing it, and try to be open minded and not Hate any kayaks, but this kayak just did bad for me. It had a good waterline and good bouyancy, but the kayak did not track well, manuver well, and it was unstable. ussually with compact kayaks you lose tracking and speed but it makes up for it in excellent manuvering and stability. It looks nice, but the performance was lacking. And this kayak has no visible oil canning so I think it was just a poor hull design.

Conclusion

Not great performance wise.
