The Rio is expressly designed for the small to medium paddler looking for a recreational-style kayak with spirited performance and nimble handling. At only 35 pounds, the Rio is comfortably stable with a playful and efficient hull. Keeping up with other kayaks is easy, and transport is simple. The Rio is fully equipped with 10 inch performance hatches bow and Stern for easy access to gear. It sports our comfortable Infinity Seat System and has molded thigh braces for a custom fit. Eddyline installs fusion bulkheads and deck lines for safety, and retractable carry handles for transport ease. All these are long boat features, but in a sporty, compact boat weighing just 35 pounds.
Carbonlite 2000 looks and performs like fiberglass with clear advantages over other plastics: lighter weight, hard glossy finish, excellent abrasion and impact resistance, superior UV protection, dimensional stability, and increased stiffness. Tough, easy to repair, and 100% recyclable!
