There's no room for boundaries when you're pushing the limits!

The thrill and experience of sea kayaking isn't just for experts... however if your expedition requires a map, then you're going to need the added speed, comfort and storage found in the Essence range.

A modern hull design incorporates a strong V-shaped bow and stern with defined chines to provide true directional stability and splendid edge control. Predictable handling, maneuverability and impressive forward speed gives paddlers all the performance needed for that great expedition. Good initial and secondary stability will allow you to take your sea touring experiences to new levels, whether you are an expert or developing your paddling skills.

No matter how far you're paddling or how extreme the conditions, a performance fit is essential in optimizing paddler control. The Zone EXP seating system found in the Essence series brings you expedition grade outfitting without compromising on comfort. Patented adjustable leg lifter support, padded thigh braces and a low profile backband are ergonomically designed for all day comfort. A day hatch gives access to a separate bulkhead compartment so you can keep track of those bits you need in easy reach, while the large bow and stern stowage compartments offer the space required for multi-day trips. For those who want to leave the safety of the shore, a recess on the bow will allow you to mount a compass to keep you on the right course. Deploy and fine tune the TruTrak skeg with Perception’s premium, wire driven system to lock in the tracking and maintain a heading in winds and currents. If you prefer using your feet to assist your direction, then the optional Tip-Toes controlled rudder can be fitted for adjusting your course without breaking stroke.

The Essence 17 has a touch more length and volume than the Essence 16. This gives more space and forgiveness for average to large paddlers and carries heavier loads without compromising on its handling abilities.

The Essence series is everything you need for that week-long, once in a lifetime trek or a more exciting day on the water that you only get with a design that's truly an extension of your body.
