Why Epic Kayaks are Superior
1. Full Waterline Length. Nearly the full length of an Epic kayak is in the water for maximum efficiency.
2. Swede Form Shape. A smooth entry into the water and a close efficient stroke with better stability.
3. Advanced Rocker Profile. Optimized for superb handling in all water conditions.
4. Front Deck Cutaways. Efficient catch at the start of every stroke.
5. Integrated Thigh Braces. Paddlers can lock in for rough water or keep their knees centered for more efficiency and power.
6. Advanced Steering System. The stern pivots directing flow. A solid foot brace allows legs to power the stroke while steering with the toes.
7. Adjustable Seat. Fine tune the cockpit position for maximum efficiency and personal comfort.
8. Lightweight, High Tech Materials. Noticeably lighter than the competition. Strong, durable, lightweight materials using a sandwich core construction and a stronger,
specially formulated epoxy resin.
9. Vacuum Infusion with Heat Cure. Epoxy resin is infused into our kayaks under full vacuum to produce Epic's signature high strength and lightweight standards. Epics
are post-cured at elevated temperatures to create the strongest and lightest kayaks on the market.
