Eddyline Rio Kayak


Eddyline Rio Kayak

The Rio is expressly designed for the small to medium paddler looking for a recreational style kayak with spirited performance and nimble handling.

At just under 12 feet in length and only 35 pounds, the Rio presents a delightful combination of comfortable stability with a playful and efficient hull. While ready for the first time paddler, this kayak will soon 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" performance hatches bow and stern for easy access to gear. It sports Eddyline's® comfortable Infinity Seat System and has molded thigh braces for a custom fit. Eddyline installs fusion bulkheads and deck lines for safety, and retractable carry handles for transport ease. All these are long boat features, but in a sporty, compact boat weighing just 35 pounds.
