Spend a relaxing afternoon floating wherever you want.

Designed to bridge the gap between full-size touring boats and recreational kayaks, the Perception Expression 11.5 Kayak gives beginner and intermediate paddlers stability and confidence without sacrificing comfort and maneuverability. The Zone DLX seat, padded thigh braces, and SlideLock adjustable foot braces ensure a great fit, and also make it easy to switch between paddlers quickly. The TruTrak System allows you to drop a skeg for improved control and tracking in rough water, while the additional cockpit space and adjustable braces provide ample comfort for longer excursions. A stern hatch and deck bungee-rigging provide ample storage for an afternoon's worth of brews and snacks.

Perception 11.5

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Product came as is sleek, light, well designed...all that I expected. Can hardly wait to get onto the water.

Can I get the Perception Expression 11.5 kayak in the "purple haze" color that Perception offers? I don't see that color option on this site.


Perception currently offers 5 color options on their site for the Expression 11.5, but none of them are Purple Haze. (The only Purple Haze options I was able to track down are exclusively located in the UK, in fact, so this color option may not have been available in US/Canadian markets.)

Feel free to contact me if you've got any other questions!
