Riot Kayaks has been around for awhile with a wide range of kayak models, but this new one really caught our eye. 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, but those reasons may not be critical to you, and that's all that counts.
We find this 12' superlight kayak 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 the video was created.
