A benchmark New Zealand design with a superb reputation. Our kayaks represent a minimalist approach to maximum versatility.
Escape Kayaks has produced great kayaks for 15 years and we sell direct to you from our factory which is why this is the best value sit-on-top general purpose kayak around. The design is the apex in making the most of the HDPE roto-moulding process with its light weight, robustness and UV resistant properties and no better design has been seen for all round performance.
RIVER and General use.
Escape Kayaks Pacer XS has excellent stability due to an abstract Polynesian outrigger design. It is not a tub or a glorified raft like others, but an entry level kayak with an intrinsic stability and ability to track straight whilst remaining maneuverable. Like a kayak with trainer wheels.
Children with confidence in the water can handle them and they will take a large adult or even an adult with a small child. A better option than tandems for the same purpose usually. Our paddle is tuned to the kayak but remains the same length for all paddlers, due to the higher sides and wider profile of sit-on kayaks changing the angle of entry to the water depending on the sitting height of the paddler. This is just one detail which sets us apart from the rest.
Water bottle holders are included and the central storage hatch is easy to see in and use. An all round grab rope is a very important safety feature, allowing easy ingress to the kayak in deep water and a safe point of purchase in any conditions. Others do away with this to save on costs and get by with a couple of handles which is inferior for carrying and re-entry. The Pacer XS is almost unique in its ability to stack upside down on standard roof racks, allowing 3 or 4 to be stacked on most racks with just a couple of tie-downs to make it a stream lined and secure load. Most designs will need cradles as you will soon discover otherwise. Save $$ and sill
OCEAN AND SURF
Our Pacer XS has the stability, buoyancy and drainage required to paddle out through even the largest surf. Without these three features in abundance you will struggle to paddle out through surf once it gets bigger than a meter or two. Our kayaks have been successfully paddled to Rottnest Island in the annual swimming event every year since 2004. No need to bail and they have a planing hull, meaning it does not try to broach when riding the waves. The design is very rigid with special bulkheads to resist twisting and deformation in extreme conditions.
Escape Kayaks Pacer XS makes a practical fishing kayak, with it's hatch well placed and we suggest one or max two rod holders is enough. Many fishing kayaks have more hatches and rod holders than you need and often place these out of reach. Kayak fishing is a minimalist sport, take with you the minimum amount of equipment on principle. Experienced kayak fishermen will agree.
SCUBA DIVING and CAMPING
The Pacer XS has moulded wells to hold a scuba tank and we can add straps to these. The optional large hatches; which like all hatches on the front or back of kayaks cannot be reached from the sitting position, do offer divers and campers the extra stowage space they need as well.
