What we say;
Being a sweet shape with a narrow profile and using the super fast and efficient surfski technique the V7 is undoubtedly the fastest plastic kayak on the market for flatwater, rivers with mild rapids and surfing.
What Epic Says;
Rotomolded kayaks have traditionally been heavy and difficult to handle, both on and off the water.
The Epic V7 breaks that mold and sets a new standard for rotomold performance. It is lightweight, extremely efficient, and easy to handle. The V7 is outfitted with the same high quality fittings as every surfski in the Epic lineup, including our carbon fiber footboard and pedals and the hugely popular Epic designed bailer. In addition, it features an aft storage compartment with a waterproof hatch that puts the V7 in a class of its own.
The 17’ x 21” V7 adds a whole new dimension. It offers similar stability to the V8 with the increased durability of a polyethylene kayak. Its capability can be further enhanced with the optional kick up rudder (no modification needed). This combination allows the V7 to be paddled in areas where composites cannot.
