    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 drinks and snacks.

    Perception Expression 11.5 with Skeg

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

    Finally got it on the water last weekend only to find out there is a manufacturing defect in the plastic molding as it vaginates into the skeg slot. It leaked on its maiden voyage. There are microscopic bubble holes from which I confirmed the leak was coming. The water is going into the dry hole behind the aft bulkhead. We'll see what warranty will do. I cannot go paddling with a leaky vessel.

    A Great "Tweener" Kayak

      The 11.5 is such a great combination of performance characteristics. Good tracking, good handling on the water and relatively easy loading and portaging. The seat and thigh pads are really comfortable and adjustable. I also own the expression 15 for big water and camping and I use the 11.5 for river/creek/estuary and lake "quick dips" and group paddles. Perception really got this one right.

      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!
