Riot Edge 14.5 Kayak Review
The Edge 14.5 Kayak is the optimized blend of elegance and efficiency with its slim deck profile and slender bow design. The versatile character of the Edge 14.5 is defined by combining a shallow keel line with moderate chines for surprising speed and tracking. A Pilot Rudder System is equipped to aid efficiency while paddling in high winds or wavy conditions.
With its large cockpit the Riot Edge 14.5 Kayak satisfies a wide fit range (160 – 240 lbs) and is suitable for beginner and intermediate paddlers. To provide a customizable fit, the Edge 14.5 includes Riot’s Advanced Contour Fit seating system and adjustable, sliding footbraces. Also featured are integrated thigh supports in the cockpit for fantastic bracing and control. As such, paddlers are able to confidently edge the kayak for increased maneuverability.
For those seeking to do day or overnight trips, the Riot Edge 14.5 Kayak has two bulkheads and hatches for plenty of dry storage. Bungee deck rigging at the bow and stern enables additional gear storage, and the Paddle ‘Park’ frees your hands for the avid photographer. As such, the Edge 14.5 is a strong day touring kayak that can take a beating on and off the water.
Riot’s thermoform Cross-Light Construction provides lighter weights while retaining durability and stiffness to give paddlers an option that takes a load off their mind! The Edge 14.5 kayak is also available in a polyethylene Cross-Max construction.
