Crossover designs have established a huge following in the world of paddling over the last five years becoming the fastest growing segment in whitewater.
The Stinger XP represents the next level in Crossover design. This game changing design combines the performance of its race-dominating sibling with the convenience and tracking of our award winning Remix XP design. The combination provides a truly one of a kind race ready expedition kayak for intermediates and seasoned boaters alike. The Stinger XP's back hatch and spring-loaded skeg ensure it functions efficiently when loaded to the gills with camping gear for flatwater and mixed current expeditions.
If your inseam is less than 32 inches, consider getting a FREE Blukhead Plate at checkout by adding the model specific B-Plate to your cart and using code FREEBPLATE. The larger B-Plate will replace the stock B-Plate giving you a better fit in your kayak. The B-Plate can be found under the Parts section in our online store.
It is important to think about your skill level. If you are more of a beginner, the Remix XP 10 will be a good go to as it will be more forgiving and stable. The Stinger XP is great for more intermediate/advanced paddlers as it is super fast and maneuverable. The XP 9 and 10 are a little easier to surf as they are smaller. The Stinger XP is faster. Both the Remix XPs and the Stinger XPs handle very well in whitewater and are easy to roll. If you are going to be in more significant (class IV-V) whitewater, the Stinger XP would probably be a more suitable choice.
Yes, you can adjust the set back and forth as well as the foot braces and thigh braces to get the perfect fit for you. The boat also comes with hip pads with shims to give you a comfortable fit at the hips. We also offer a seat riser pad (APAD006) that slides underneath the sewn seat glove to lift you up, if you prefer to be higher up in the boat.
