Riot Kayaks has been around for awhile with a wide range of kayak models, but this model really caught our eye a couple of years ago and has proven to be a good seller for us. All of the benefits of pedal drive without the big price tag! Sure there's a reason these models are half the price of the more expensive Hobie kayak models we sell, but those reasons may not be critical to you, and that's all that counts.
We find the boat to be comfortable in the seat, very stable while standing, and easy to propel and track through the water. The drive is a propeller model, and the advantages include ease of motion at startup speeds and instant reverse. For a view of the pros and cons of the Riot models compared to the Hobies, check out our side-by-side review
. Note -there has been a tariff-caused price increase since this video was created. At about 10' long, it is easy to store and transport, but stable enough to stand up in. The 12' Mako model
is a bit smoother in the water in our opinion, but we sell as many 10' models as 12' ones.
Length: 10' 4"
Capacity: 470 lbs
Fitted Hull Weight: 67 lbs

We have several Riot models to check out on our showroom floor, or give us a call to discuss why we are so excited to offer this to the kayaking community - locally and nationwide! We also have a full range of kayak and kayak fishing accessories on hand. For more details, call us at 480-348-8917, or learn more about this model
. Please call us before ordering online as we sell the same stock from both online and at our retail store, so the mix of boats available changes frequently. The combinations listed as available were current as of November 1, 2020; we have a new shipment coming in mid-November.
We can ship this model anywhere in the lower 48 via our freight carrier from around $200 depending on your location (see shipping zones below). The shipping rates you'll see at checkout assume sending to the closest terminal for our carrier Estes Freight. Shipping direct to a residence would increase the cost by at least $75. Further, it's safer if you pick it up at the terminal as it removes the last driver and transfer from the potential damage equation. We bundle our shipped boats better than anyone, but the fewer transfers the less likely there is of damage. Go to www.estes-express.com
to find the closest terminal, or call us to discuss delivery point options.
