The Rio is expressly designed for the small to medium paddler looking for a recreational style kayak with spirited performance and nimble handling.
At 11’9” long and only 35 pounds, the Rio presents a delightful combination of comfortable stability with a playful and efficient hull – ready for the first time paddler – and will tempt you to experiment with more advanced paddle strokes. Keeping up with other touring kayaks is easy, and the extra light weight and smaller size make car topping and storage a joy.
The Rio is fully equipped with 10 inch performance hatches bow and stern for easy access to gear, and our comfortable Infinity Seat System with thigh braces for a custom fit. Eddyline installs fusion bulkheads and deck lines for safety, and retractable carry handles for transport ease.
All these long boat features, in a sporty, compact boat weighing just 35 pounds. The Rio will bring a smile to your face every on every outing.
