Riot Mako 12 Sit-On-Top Pedal Fishing Kayak

Special Pricing for Orange/Yellow!


Riot Kayaks is a Canadian company with a wide range of kayak models, but this 12 foot Mako pedal drive model is our favorite of their sit-on-tops we sell. For several years it has provided our customers with all of the benefits of pedal drive without the big price tag!  And right now, that price is well below retail! Limited time and quantities; orange/yellow is the lowest priced.

You could easily pay twice as much for another pedal kayak - we sell a lot of more expensive ones - but you won't get twice the value.  Sure there's a reason these Riot models are less, but those reasons may not be critical to you, and that's all that counts.  And don't worry about durability - we've included the Mako 12 in our local rental fleet for years without issue!

You will find the Mako 12 to be comfortable on the water for all day fishing, very stable while standing, and smooth to propel and track through the water - whether lake, river or ocean. The Impulse propeller drive has the advantage of ease of motion at startup speeds and instant reverse. For a view of the pros and cons of the Riot models compared to some of the other models we sell as an example, check out some of the comparison videos below. (Note - there may have been price changes from any mentioned in the videos.)

The Mako 12 is, not surprisingly, right at twelve feet long - long enough to track well on the water, but not so long to cause issues in transportation or storage.  If you want a slightly lighter and shorter kayak without sacrificing features and stability - check out the 10' Riot Mako we sell.  Or if you are looking for something a bit bigger with more stability, check out the 14' Riot Mako we also have available.

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 nationwide! We also have a full range of kayak and kayak fishing accessories on hand. You may want to call us before ordering online to ensure availability and coordinate the ship-timing, as models and colors come and go from our stock frequently. 

We can ship this model anywhere in the lower 48 contiguous states via our freight carrier starting at around $229 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 is doable but can increase the cost by $100 or more. 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 to find the closest terminal, or call us to discuss delivery point options.

Each state is assigned a shipping zone, as follows:

Shipping Zone 1 comprises the states nearby to us in Arizona in the southwest US - CA/NV/AZ/UT/CO/NM/TX/OK (typical cost $199 - $249)
Shipping Zone 2 includes the northwest and middle of the US - WA/OR/ID/ND/SD/NE/KS/MN/IA/MO/AR/LA/WI/IL/MI/IN/OH/KY/TN/MS/AL/GA (typical cost $239 - $329)
Shipping Zone 3 is for all the rest - mostly eastern states with a couple of outliers in the west - MT/WY/FL/SC/NC/VA/WV/MD/DC/DE/PA/NJ/NY/CT/RI/MA/VT/NH/ME (typical cost $249 - $399)

Your exact cost for this model can be seen by selecting your zone from the drop-down list above.
