S18R ADVANTAGE TOURING
S18R G2 The redesigned Stellar S18' Racer touring kayak (S18R G2) is not your average kayak. Owning many ultra-distance course records, this paddling machine has been further refined - be prepared to be blown away. A tighter catch, streamlined carbon handles and a refined hull shape make this boat as fast as it looks. 3-point footbrace ensures a powerful leg drive. Stability of the G2 will be similar to the G1. Waterline beam still conforms to USCA Sea Kayak division. These refinements make this a boat you need to put in your fleet.
