Just purchased this kayak as I am having a knee replacement and was worried about getting into my other kayaks. Chose this kayak as it has a long cockpit and I am able to move my legs around and into it. I had looked at a SOT but they are heavy and I kayak all winter since we live on the ocean and did not feel this would provide much protection. This kayak fit most of my criteria. It is light and easy to lift, it has good storage and easy to adjust the foot pedals. It is not as fast as my Fusion Lightspeed but it moves well and with the catamaran hull it provides good stability. It is also a good looking kayak and made in Canada. I am able to take my dogs and a child between my legs if needed. All in all I am happy with this purchase.

Love my Fusion! I have had this kayak for 9 years and still like it and use it 2-3 times a week in the winter and every day all summer. It is surprisingly fast and I can keep up with longer kayaks. I use it in the ocean and take it up some rivers. It is light enough for me to get on the roof of my car and take it to a lake. I believe Lightspeed kayaks are a best kept secret. I have used their Phoenix kayak and it is a very good touring kayak as well. I had to have a repair done which fortunately Lightspeed is only a few miles away from where I live and they serviced it at a very reasonable cost. Can honestly highly recommend this company.
