Photon sit on top kayak launch

New for the 2023 season Riber are proud to launch the PHOTON Sit On Top Kayak is the first of its kind to be made in the Peak District, UK. Keeping a timeless shape, Riber have designed the Photon Sit on Top Kayak to be packed with features. The ample hull width increases the stability on flat water. The integrated skeg cuts through the waves and the lightweight hull provides excellent tracking resulting in an effortless paddle for smooth sea use.

The PHOTON Sit On Top Kayak includes a unique bucket storage hatches with soft closure. This hatch is ideal for keeping essentials and valuables safe whilst out paddling. There are handles either side with paddle holders and an ergonomic grab handle at the rear.

In the rear storage area there are two drainage holes which means it is suitable for use with the Sit on Top Kayak Trolley which allows you to transport the kayak without the need to use a strap to secure the boat.

The PHOTON Sit On Top Kayak is made from blow moulded HDPE in Derbsyhire, UK. We select our colour range carefully to mitigate any potential colour fade over time and use UV stable pigments. The core hull is a blown in one piece mould ensuring the best possibly buoyancy and rigidity. This kayak comes with a users guide which includes details of the full one year manufacturers warranty we offer.

This kayak has a central drinks holder and space to fit an optional Rod Holder. It has five drainage holes spaced across the boat. There are several footrest points for added comfort when paddling. Also, there are a number of D-rings which can be used to secure paddles leashes or other similar items. The rear bungee storage area is ideal for any trolley.

The PHOTON Sit On Top Kayak is stable on flat waters. Consequently, the curvature and rocker of the hull mean it also performs great in the sea and amongst the waves.
