Riot Kayaks Edge 13 Kayak Review
After receiving a few upgrades we are happy to reintroduce the Edge 13 Kayak from Riot Kayaks. Now available in their thermoform, Cross-Light Construction, the Edge 13 Kayak is the mid-sized boat in the series that also includes the longer Edge 14.5.
The Edge 13 kayak is considered a low volume, day touring kayak that combines efficiency, stability, and agility. With a width of 25” and shallow Vee hull, the Edge 13 provides reliable stability, while its shorter length and defined lines offer high maneuverability. A multi-adjustable, spring-loaded skeg is included to improve tracking when padding in high winds or wavy conditions.
The Riot Edge 13 Kayak features a roomy cockpit and can hold up to 300 lbs giving it a wide fit range. The Custom Fit Seating System, Quick-Lock Footrests, and Integrated Thigh Braces offer the paddler a customized fit regardless of their size. Smaller paddlers will appreciate the low deck height as they won’t feel ‘lost’ inside the cockpit and can easily maintain a low-profile paddle stroke.
For those seeking to do day or overnight trips, the Riot Edge 13 Kayak has two bulkheads and hatches for plenty of dry storage. Bungee deck rigging at the bow and stern enables additional gear storage, and anglers will envy the flush mount rod holder. The resourceful photographer can also outfit the rod holder as a digital or video camera mount.
Riot's thermoform Cross-Light Construction provides lighter weights to give paddlers an option that takes a load off their mind! That said, the thinner gauge of thermoform does result in more flex in the hull, which does reduce the glide and overall efficiency of the kayak. The Edge 13 kayak is also available in a polyethylene Cross-Max construction.
