Axis X3 sport kayak

About the Axis 3 sport

The A3 Sport is the performance version of the X3 – faster and with less initial stability it is the marine equivalent of an open sports car, but still within reach for the ambitious beginner, even in bad conditions. Designed for paddlers in the 50-75 kg weight range it will be a very capable touring kayak for light paddlers or a play and surf kayak for those in the upper part of the range. But since sea kayaks have a forgiving weight margin (it takes 15,2 kg to push the waterline 1 cm!), the X3 Sport will do fine with a 35 kg paddler (though a little wind sensitive) as well as an 85 kg paddler (though a little wet at times).

The X3 Sport is of course fitted with our signature Axis bucket seat and the nicely incorporated deck hatches.
