Expanding on our established and popular lineage, we wanted to build another kayak that will grow with the paddler’s skills. Whether they are aspiring rough water paddlers - enticed by greenland style rolling - or enjoy flat-water day trips or multi-day journeys, the Progression - a smaller version of its older sibling, the Reflection - fits into the ever-so-popular 16 feet by 22 inch kayak class, with precise measurements listed below. With design elements such as a swooping back-deck, whitewater-inspired mid-section, rounded style bow/stern, a soft V-shaped hull, radiused rails and the traditional Sterling-style stern, this kayak is very maneuverable, easy to control/roll, super fun to paddle, and is already receiving best-in-class accolades from those who have tested it.
A voluminous kayak for its size - with strong rough water capabilities - the Progression features 10’’ round hatches in the bow/stern, with the classic 8’’ round day hatch giving access to the skeel (skeg) for easy maintenance or repair, leaving the main hatches with enough room for multi-day touring. Built to the same top quality as the rest of our fleet, this kayak will be strong, light, and (if damage does occur) easy to repair.
