A true all-water weapon.
Like the legendary cross between a stealthy leopard and a majestic lion, the Karma Traverse 10 Kayak is a hybrid that rules over its vast domain with subtlety, balance, and power. It borrowed its hull design and rockered bow from the now-classic Karma, but kept the beginner-friendly stability of the sadly defunct Rogue to satisfy expert and novice paddlers alike. The Traverse is designed to be versatile enough to give paddlers of all ability the initial stability needed to run rivers, but with the smooth-tracking abilities of a touring boat, it will handle the occasional flatwater adventure, too.
Being the largest option available in the Traverse line, this version of the boat is just over ten feet long and sports a rockered profile and narrow bow, making it a boat that will handle second- to fourth-class rapids without sacrificing the more stable feel of a traditional touring boat. Jackson rigged the Traverse with its whitewater seat, which comes with a Sure-Lock adjustable back band, and equipped the bow with its Unishock bulkhead for increased safety when whitewater paddling. The bungee deck rigging and oval-shaped stern hatch will give you some room to throw some extra layers, a lunch, and plenty of water on the boat for a full day on the lake, while the integrated skeg will be a welcome companion when you're tracking across a big glassy lake, or paddling through those long, flat sections of river.
