The best in fun-loving performance.
The Perception Prodigy 10.0 kayak’s stable and forgiving 10-foot design makes it a favorite for beginners to intermediates. The sit-in design protects from the elements and lowers the kayak’s center of gravity for enhanced stability. The shorter length and light weight make it easy to transport and maneuver as you explore flat-water rivers, lakes, and ponds. Full days are a joy thanks to spacious dry storage and the deluxe comfort of a six-way adjustable seat with padded adjustable leg support.
The Prodigy offers more comfort than any kayak at this price. The spacious sit-in cockpit is easy to get in and out of, and the thickly padded premium seat with contoured backrest offers industry-leading adjustability; the seat bottom tilts up or down, while the seatback tilts forward or backward and can be raised or lowered—all by simply pulling or releasing the straps. The footrests can also be quickly adjusted while seated, making it easy to fine-tune the fit.
Stability & Performance
The Prodigy makes it fun to get on the water with an exceptionally stable sit-in design that’s perfect for beginner to intermediate paddlers. Its smooth, straight-tracking, stable hull is effortless to paddle and steer for performance you can feel as your skills progress. The Prodigy XS is the easiest paddling kids kayak available, while the two larger sizes are faster than you’d expect for an experience that inspires confidence.
Features & Safety
The Prodigy is engineered and tested to be among the safest kayaks available with built-in buoyancy and stability that lets you focus on fun. The Prodigy XS is designed for kids with a seat and cockpit sized to keep little ones secure, along with integrated floatation for added safety. The two larger sizes provide all the essential features, including a sealed dry storage compartment and bungee lashes on the front and back for easy access to gear of any shape or size.
Like all Perception kayaks, the Prodigy is designed for maximum durability and optimized weight. This is the result of its high-density polyethylene and one-piece roto-molded construction that provides exceptional UV, impact, and abrasion-resistance. The easily replaceable skid plate adds protection when dragging the kayak to and from the water. Ocean and saltwater-optimized hardware and finishes prevent corrosion for long-lasting performance.
