Perception Essence kayak review

Perception Essence 16 & 17

The Perception Essence is a classic British sea kayak in robust roto moulded plastic at an affordable price. Its V-shape hull and well defined chines make it track very well while its length gives good forward speed and the combination of tracking and manoeuvrability are well balanced.
