Perception Vista

 

The Perception Vista is the largest of Perception's open kayaking range and is easy to paddle. The Vista has a defined keel and tracking channels which helps create a smooth ride and good directional stability. This kayak also features an up turn in the bow and foredeck and is designed to cut through the water effectively and protect the paddlers, keeping them drier. The seats are adjustable and can be positioned to affect trim and create space for a child's seat to be added.

 

Like the other kayaks in the range the Vista's large cockpit allows for easy entry and exit and is a good safety feature for first time paddlers.

 

The Vista can be transported on a car roof rack - see photo below. The Thule Hydo Glide 873 makes loading and unloading straightforward.

The Perception Vista is available in 2 specifications:
Rental: 2 padded seats, carry handles, drainage bung
Expedition: as Standard, plus rear storage hatch with sealed bulkhead
