At this price you'll want to buy several so your entire family can enjoy this fun, on-the-water sport!
Imagine gliding effortlessly across a lake just as the sun rises with only the sounds of waterfowl and the occasional fishing jumping to disturb your morning workout. Or, imagine an epic day cruising with your kids down a lazy river without video games or texting to spoil the adventure. With Pelican's Summit 100X Sit-Inside Kayak you can and soon will if history is any indication of what the future holds.
Ruggedly built and light enough to transport on your vehicle with a top-mounted rack (sold separately) or in the back of a pickup, this kayak will be your go-to craft of choice for many years to come. Carrying it from the parking lot to the water is a breeze with its ergonomical handles. Once in the water, even beginning paddlers will quickly feel confident with its stable, yet maneuverable performance. You'll find the 10' length is also the right size for storing horizontally or vertically in most garages. And at this price, adding to your fleet won't break the bank (or cause trouble with your significant other).
The Summit 100X was designed for sheltered waters, lakes and slow moving streams. The low center of gravity you'll experience paddling a sit-inside kayak makes it easier to paddle, plus you are more protected from cold water if that's a consideration. Add an optional spray skirt (sold separately) for even more protection. And although it only weighs 35 pounds, this kayak is capable of carrying a generous 275 pounds.
Utilizing Twin Sheet Thermoforming (TST) technology, the Summit 100X features RAM-X™, a multi-layer material exclusive to Pelican, known for its high impact-resistance, its ability to regain its initial shape after violent impacts and a UV-protected exterior finish. Its shallow v-chine hull is maneuverable and tracks and turns well. It also improves secondary stability allowing for more surface area touching the water when it is turned on its side. This will keep your kayak from rolling over as easily and the extra stability will help novice paddlers gain more confidence.
The padded seat and adjustable backrest add comfortable support you'll appreciate on longer trips. Adjustable foot pegs allow you to adjust the length for different paddlers.
A cockpit table with bottle holder is molded-in so it's always in reach. There's also a notch built into the seat bottom that serves as another bottle holder. You'll find a bungee tiedown in the bow and another one in the stern over a storage hatch that isn't waterproof so you'll want to get a dry bag (sold separately) to keep important items dry. The carrying handles found at the bow and stern make portaging easy as well as providing tiedown points for your roof rack, rafting together or docking.
If you don't already own them or it's time to replace the ones you have, remember to order a kayak paddle and a life jacket (both sold separately) so you'll be ready to splash your kayak as soon as possible!
