Perception Expression 14 & 15


The Expression is a sleek and capable touring kayak that has all the performance you need for longer trips and to develop skills and technique. These touring kayaks are stable and easy to paddle which makes them superb for beginners who are looking to get more out of touring and will help you push your skills to the next level. When you start to feel more adventurous the Expression will handle chop with ease and is responsive when surfing the waves back in to the beach.


The Expression is a very well equipped boat, the Zone outfitting offers great comfort and control with a well padded seat and adjustable thigh grips. A large rear hatch offers loads of storage space and because it is oval in shape allows you to get longer items in such as your tent poles or similar, a smaller front hatch and storage hatch in addition to this means theres enough space for a weekend of camping. The Expression also comes complete with a drop down skeg to help with tracking, deck bungees front and rear of the cockpit and toggle carry handles at both ends.

The Expression is available with two backrest options, the larger zone backrest (Zone DLX) which offers more comfort and a larger support area, or a back band style (Zone Exp) which doesn't sit proud of the cockpit rim and is designed for more porformance. (Both options pictured above)


The Expression 14 and Expression 15 are able cater for a wide range of paddlers and are a great option for beginner/ intermediate kayakers who want to be able to paddle further afield on longer day trips and have the option of taking enough gear for a few days.
