Perception Kayaks Conduit 13.0

The Conduit 13.0 from Perception Kayaks offers the perfect balance of comfort and stability, while giving new paddlers a taste of speed and performance.

As a light touring kayak, the Conduit is great for exploring flat-water lakes, ponds, and rivers. And with the adjustable Zone Seating System and padded cockpit rim, it's comfortable enough to keep on you on the water all day long!

The Conduit 13.0 inspires confidence at any age being one of Perception's safest, most stable designs. Similar to the Carolina 12.0 and 140 models, beginners appreciate the user-friendliness of the flattened hull and inverted keels, while the roomy cockpit makes getting in and out a breeze.

At 13', the Conduit achieves a good balance between maneuverability and straight tracking, and it outpaces most other kayaks in its class.

Bow and stern bulkheads and hatches come standard, which offers plenty of storage for a full day of on-water adventures and overnight excursions.

If you're getting started with kayaking, the Perception Conduit 13.0 is a great beginner's boat that instills confidence and encourages skills development.
