Whether you're paddling in surf, rock gardens, open water, tidal estuaries, or meandering rivers, the Stratos touring kayak is designed to excel. Beginners will appreciate its stability and forgiveness, while intermediate and expert paddlers will love its sporty hull that offers speed and maneuverability on any adventure. With an adjustable drop-skeg, the Stratos aids in tracking, and its 2 hatches, bulkheads, and deck bungees make gear storage easy. Whether you're embarking on a multi-day touring adventure or just heading out for a day trip to your favorite rock garden or surf spot, the Stratos is the do-it-all kayak that stays with you on every step of your journey. And if you're a larger paddler, we've got you covered with our slightly larger 14.5L kayak.
