What you can expect from the Q700X

The Q700X may be the fastest touring kayak available today. The pinnacle of John Winters' kayak design work - the Q700X is dry, maneuverable and fast, fast, fast! It is very controllable in short, steep chop and also surfs well. The ultimate fast touring sea kayak.

Designer's Comments

"The Q700X provides a step up in size over the Q600X. If you weigh over 200 lbs. or can't leave shore without every camping amenity then the Q700X should fit your requirements. To retain the preformance of the Q600X I added to the length and adjusted the shape slightly to give the longer boat the same feel when heavily loaded." - John Winters
