Storm Rider K-1 (Large - Extra Large):


$2395 (Standard), $3095 (Premium)

Primarily designed for those above 200 lbs, the Storm Rider L-XL is also a good choice for smaller paddlers seeking the security of a wider, more stable hull.

The Storm Rider L-XL features a continuous rocker profile, soft chines that transition into a flattish hull, and a generous maximum width of 27". Combine that with our 25 lb kevlar/carbon/epoxy construction and you get a predictable, forgiving design with super maneuverability, surface spins that rival the turning ability of a slalom boat, and a "zero-to-sixty" thats unlike any creeker you've ever paddled!

We are certain you will fall in love with the significant performance gains that a composite kayak offers. There's simply no comparison.

Key features of the L-XL version of the Storm Rider:

  • primary construction: kevlar/epoxy with rib system reinforcement.
  • deck: carbon reinforced to impart stiffness and structure.
  • hull: carbon/kevlar hybrid reinforced to balance impact and stiffness.
  • triple seamed for toughness.
  • minicell pillars and carbon pillar guides.
  • carbon bow shock absorber.
  • large cockpit for easy entry and exit.
  • stainless steel security lock-down loop and accessory attachment point.
  • four light but tough and beefy grab loops.
  • suitable for both creeking and general river running.

See our K-1 Outfitting Selection Guide, Accessories Page, and Price List to select the parts, options, and installation that's right for you.

We now offer our boats in three different layups: Standard, Premium, Premium-FD.

Appropriate for heights: 5' 6" - 6' 6"

For those willing to trade-off extra stability for a sportier narrow hull, check out the Storm Rider S-M.
