Xplore

This model is no longer in production. Details are listed to assist anyone purchasing a used kayak or researching the lineage of current Tiderace models.

The US based Sea Kayaker magazine reviewed the Xplore in June 2011.

The Bottom Line…

“The Xplore favors the long haul, with nothing left out. Easy to roll, it has great tracking, fast cruising speed and ample and easy gear stowage.”

“The design is meant for fast touring but it is still agile, responsive and quick. Its speed for a good touring pace or quick acceleration to play in features is quite useful. A versatile craft, for a one-boat quiver.”
