Riot Quest 9.5

The Riot Quest 9.5 has been designed to give the entry-level recreational paddler a kayak that is spacious yet small & lightweight. This nimble little kayak with great tracking and stability will allow you quickly gain confidence on the water. The Quest 9.5 also has a large cockpit so getting in and out of this little touring kayak is easy too. The Greenland style fine bow cuts though the water nicely and the double chine hull ensures that the Quest maintains good forward tracking allowing you to concentrate more on enjoying the scenery than worrying about getting every paddle stroke correct.

Riot have given the Quest 9.5 some great features, a rear storage hatch with dual density rubber hatch cover. The compartment is also sealed from the main cockpit area by a bulkhead meaning that should you go over and fill the cockpit, the rear storage area will still give some buoyancy to the kayak making recovery that little bit easier. Both compartments also feature separate drain bungs so getting water out of either area is a breeze. This lightweight short day touring kayak weighs in at only 17.8kgs so car topping and getting to and from the water is much easier.

For those looking to start exploring the wonderful waters of the Norfolk Broads and local calm lakes and rivers, the Riot Quest 9.5 is a great place to start.

The Riot Quest is also available in the larger Riot Quest 10 HV for bigger adults and paddlers.
