What you can expect from the Q600X

The Q600X is ideal for those in the 130-160 lb. weight range who are looking for a narrow beam performance kayak. Its 21" width allows comfortable paddle reach for those with narrow shoulders. It is an extremely efficient and fast kayak with great maneuverability. This is a boat that is extremely user-friendly for a narrow beam kayak.

Designer's Comments

"The Q600X should appeal most to skilled paddlers who place a high priority on speed and responsiveness. The narrow beam and low freeboard encourage efficient strokes no matter what style of paddling you use. Despite the narrow beam the Q600X has enormous secondary stability and feels rock-solid at high angles of heel. For long trips you will want to pack more efficiently than with the Q500X but an average sized paddler should have no trouble getting enough gear and food in for a week's touring." - John Winters
