Perception Expression 11
Day paddling in this little baby is brilliant. More nimble and manoeuvrable than its longer brethren, the 11 is perfectly suited for a days paddle on the local canal, lake or estuary. It is also ideally suited for exploring the coastline and nipping in and out of rocky coves or sandy beaches.
With the carrying capacity in the rear hatch it is also possible to take overnight camping kit for multi-day paddling trips for longer adventures. Or for a days paddle enough room for a mega-picnic!
Another product of the Sussex based Perception factory, made in the UK to a very high standard of quality: “Designed with beginner to intermediate paddlers in mind, the Expression's paddling performance builds confidence and skill and is the ideal stepping stone into the world of touring”. So it may have been, but if you’re an expert and want a few hours playing about then this little kayak works a treat.
High-end outfitting, Zone seating system, rear hatch and bulkhead, fully adjustable foot-rests and thigh braces.
The Perception 11's DLX Backrest system is 'High-backed' and raises or lowers to supply lower lumber support. This system is compatible with most touring spraydeck's. Allowing maximum back-support, ideal for those longer days on the water.
Easy to handle on and off the car, easy to paddle, easy to store, very well made, just add water. The Expression 11 also can provide lots of entertainment whilst paddling in the rough water as well (as long as you know your capabilities). She who must be Obeyed, our CEO, rates the Expression 11 most highly.
The Perception Expression 11 is suitable for a wide range of paddler sizes. The photo at the top of this page shows Simon (17stone/108kg) paddling the Expression 11 comfortably with plenty of leg room. Simon is at the top end of the recommended weight capacity for the Expression 11 and found it paddles perfectly for an 11ft touring kayak.
