Solace 16 XL

Cockpit Configuration

The Solace 16 XL handles like a sports car, but carries a load like a pick-up truck! The Solace 16 XL "Extra Large" is beautiful, rugged, fast, and as ready as you are for fun and adventure. 

The largest difference between the "EX" series and the "XL" series is the height and width of the kayak at the cockpit. The "XL" series has a taller and wider cockpit, which ultimately makes the whole kayak larger in volume. There are three cockpit sizes which accommodate large and tall paddlers for both the "EX" and "XL" series, but large and tall paddlers may find the cockpit more spacious and comfortable than the "EX."

Beginner paddlers will enjoy the stability of the "XL" series but the intermediate and expert paddlers will benefit from the manoeuvrability, speed, efficiency, and durability of this kayak. The low deck at the rear of the cockpit allows rolling and rescue manoeuvres with ease. This kayak is great for new paddlers but will remain the primary kayak for the paddler in years to come.

This kayak accommodates paddlers 5’ 3” to 6’ 3” from 105 lbs to 225 lbs. This kayak is also suitable for paddlers with large feet or limited mobility due to its higher deck height.  can easily manoeuvre their favourite river, lake or ocean with confidence in this boat. 

All of our kayaks have a bow and stern sealed bulkhead. This acts like two ballast tanks that hold air and cannot be occupied by water. This increases the kayaks safety in windy and wavy conditions the kayak cannot sink or fill with water.
