Riot Kayaks has been around for awhile with a wide range of kayak models, but this 12' Mako pedal drive model is our favorite. 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 smooth to propel and track through the water - whether lake, river or ocean. 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 12' long, it is easy to store and transport, but stable enough to stand up in. If you want a lighter and shorter kayak without sacrificing features and stability - check out the 10' Riot Mako we sell
Length: 12' 4"
Capacity: 470 lbs

. Please call us before ordering online to ensure availability and ship-timing, as models come and go from our stock frequently.
We can ship this model anywhere in the lower 48 via our freight carrier from around $200 - $350 depending on your location (see shipping zones below). The shipping rates you'll see at checkout assume sending to a commercial address, or you can pick up at the nearest terminal of our freight company. Shipping direct to a residence would increase the cost by at least $100, so you are better off picking it up at some commercial location, such as at a retail or warehouse business, or the carrier's terminal. We usually use Estes Trucking - go to www.estes-express.com
to find the closest terminal, or call us to discuss delivery point options.
