Riot Kayaks Edge 14.5 Kayak Review
The Edge 14.5 kayak combines speed and agility with its slender deck, slim bow, and just the right amount of rocker. With a width of 22.4”, shallow vee hull, and integrated thigh braces the Edge 14.5 provides reliable stability and control needed for beginners to develop skills, while the added length and defined lines improve tracking over the shorter Edge 13. The Pilot Rudder Systems is included to increase efficiency when padding in high winds or wavy conditions.
Despite the smaller cockpit and narrower beam, the Riot Edge 14.5 kayak has a similar fit range to its smaller sibling due to the longer length and deck height. As such, we recommend the Edge 14.5 to small- to medium-sized paddlers in the 125 lbs – 200 lbs range. The Custom Fit Seating System, Quick-Lock Footrests, and Integrated Thigh Braces offer the paddler a customized fit regardless of their size.
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 pre-installed quick-release, self-rescue straps are a welcome upgrade to make re-entry effortless.
Riot’s thermoform Cross-Light Construction provides lighter weights to give paddlers an option that takes a load off their mind! However, by using a thinner gauge of thermoform, there is more flex in the hull during paddling reduces glide and overall efficiency The Edge 14.5 kayak is also available in a polyethylene Cross-Max construction (custom order only) for those looking to save on their purchase.
