The Eddyline Sitka XT, is the ultimate day touring kayak tailored for the large-framed paddler
The Sitka XT, is a lightweight and maneuverable kayak that seamlessly combines the best features of our Fathom touring kayaks—delivering top-notch performance, efficiency, and tracking—with the playful and nimble spirit found in our recreational kayaks.
Fully outfitted for seaworthy adventures, the Sitka XT boasts perimeter lines, bulkheads, watertight hatches, and a convenient 6-inch forward day hatch for easy access to small items. With retractable handles, deck bungees, and an upgraded ergonomic Infinity Seat System featuring a backrest (standard) or an optional backband, this kayak is designed for both comfort and functionality.
The kayak’s slender and streamlined design enables it to glide effortlessly through the water, while its Carbonlite construction renders it both durable and lightweight, simplifying its navigation on and off the water. The kayak boasts a spacious cockpit that is easy to access and exit, and it is equipped with an adaptable seat and footrests that can be tailored to fit your comfort. Additionally, the kayak has a capacious, waterproof storage compartment at the rear, as well as two hatches at the front. Bungee cords have been added to the front and back of the kayak to provide supplementary space for storage.
The Sitka combines the best of both worlds – the performance, efficiency, and tracking of the Eddyline Fathom touring kayaks, together with the playful nimble spirit of the Eddyline recreational kayaks.
