Eddyline Kayaks Rio 11/9 Review
The Rio 11/9 from Eddyline Kayaks is a welcome addition to our line of light touring kayaks for the 2019 season. Essentially, it is a scaled down version of the Skylark 12 to offer a better fit for smaller sized paddlers. Like its larger sibling, the Rio provides stability and comfort similar to a recreational kayak, while the features and performance do a good job of emulating a touring kayak.
Beginner paddlers will find confidence in the user-friendly design, but they will rejoice in the Rio’s ability to keep up with longer kayaks during a leisurely group outing. What’s more, the hard chines and Greenland styling provide skills development that is uncommon among kayaks of its kind.
Unlike the Skylark, the Rio 11/9 comes standard with molded thigh braces to help petite paddlers attain a ‘one-with-boat’ fit that’s typically found in performance touring kayaks. Combine that with the adjustable Infinity Seating System, and a customized fit can be achieved for control over the kayak in adverse conditions.
Made from U.V. resistant thermoform material, the Rio 11/9 is ultralight at 35 lbs and durable against most impacts. Lifting a kayak on top of your car doesn’t get much easier than this!
- Bow and stern hatches / bulkheads for watertight storage and positive buoyancy
- Bungee deck rigging for additional gear capacity
- Retractable carry handles bow and stern with security loops for cable locks or towing attachment points
