The Lightning 14 was designed for exploring winding creeks and rivers but it is also great for taking day trips in standing water.
Though not as fast as the Lightning 17 and the Solace 16EX, the L14 paddles beautifully in all conditions. This stable multi-chine kayak has similar great tracking characteristics, while at the same time, she is amazingly maneuverable.
The Lightning 14 features our exclusive QuickLock connector system which provides simple, attractive and very strong joints. Beautifully contoured knee braces accent the keyhole cockpit design while giving comfortable knee support for smaller paddlers. Larger paddlers will also find the spacious cockpit to their liking.
With two large hatches, the Lightning 14 is an excellent touring boat whether on open water or drifting down rivers or adventuring into class III rapids. At 35 lbs, this is a rugged performance boat that is easily loaded onto a car; yet it has the capacity to carry weeks of gear for longer excursions.
