If you're an adventure seeker who wants the best of both touring and expedition kayaks, the Expression 15.0 Sit-Inside Kayak is for you.

Like its smaller sister, the Expression 15.0 offers forgiving handling and stability expected of a touring design with the performance of an expedition kayak.

Key Features

  • Zone DLX seat
  • Adjustable padded thigh braces
  • Keepers foot brace system
  • Bow and stern hatches
  • Bungee deck rigging with reflective static perimeter safety line
  • Kayak Karrier handles
  • Bow and stern bulkheads
  • TruTrak Adjustable Skeg System
  • Rudder capable


  • Hull Design: Perception's custom, high-grade polyethylene plastic and distinct rotational molding process provides exceptional strength and durability. With its seamless, one-piece construction, the Expression is highly UV-, abrasion- and impact-resistant for years of trouble-free performance. The thickness is varied throughout the hull for extra strength when needed, but without additional weight. This kayak is easily repaired, recyclable and manufactured with less waste than conventional roto-molding. 
  • Kayak Karrier Handles: Hand fatigue is a thing of the past with the ergonomic Kayak Karrier handles designed to provide a secure, comfortable grip for your hand during every portage.
  • Zone DLX Seating System: Patented, multiple adjustment options for ultimate ergonomic support and fit for the touring paddler. Easily tuned components include flexible wings, leg support and backrest.
  • Tru Trak Skeg System: Durable construction and hydrofoil shape offer more efficient water flow for an overall improved paddling performance when deployed. The TruTrak Adjustable skeg system enclosure has also been reengineered for even more durability.
  • Rudder Capable: Expression is “rudder ready” with internal tubing that houses rudder cables pre-installed for simple, rapid addition of after-market rudder kits.

If you don't already own them, you'll want to order a kayak paddle and a life jacket (both sold separately) so you'll be ready to splash your kayak right away!
