Most Comfortable
Riot Kayaks Edge 14’5”

Riot Kayaks classify the Edge 14.5 as a day touring kayak, but the bow and stern hatches provide ample storage space for overnight or weekend trips alike.

The Edge 14.5 is a Polyethylene-made kayak that has stood the test of time. It comes equipped with a built-in rudder system, a custom seating construction with sliding foot braces, and reflective lifelines.

If you’re planning on bringing a few changes of clothes and other essentials for a multi-day trip, you can rely on the dry sealed hatches for waterproof storage and additional deck bungees to store the gear you want access to on the water.

The Edge 14.5 has a wide, comfortable cockpit, excellent handling and stability, and can be used both for flat-water and ocean paddling. It’s a robust boat for beginner to intermediate paddlers looking for a comfortable, cost-effective option to get themselves on the water for light multiday trips.
