Description and Details

Description     Specs

The newest offering in the Cruiser series, the 15.8 prioritizes speed and efficiency for unparalleled performance. The Cruiser 15.8 offers enough interior volume for longer trips with plenty of gear, but handles exceptionally well when unloaded as well. Interweaving the series signature C1 racing features like tucked-in gunwales at the paddling station and the sharp entry and exit lines of a K1 kayak, the Cruiser 15.8 is a true hybrid. Even with its desire for speed, the medium width offers excellent stability and provides comfort in larger water. Whether you’re an expedition tripper or a recreational enthusiast looking to maximize your potential, the Cruiser 15.8 is made for adventure.
