THE EPSILON SERIES

Composite model shown

The Epsilon is the top selling series for tour operators and rental fleets. This stable and predictable craft works with a wide variety of paddlers. A rudder, ample deck bungees, and a full compliment of deck safety lines are placed strategically to maximize your storage.
Boréal Design has invested in high quality materials in all three constructions. Our bulkhead installation is renowned as being the most reliable. With our easily adjustable foot sliders, the Epsilon accommodates a wide size range of paddlers, tall or short and up to 300 lbs. The Epsilon is a smooth, predictable and stable craft. Even in rougher water the ride is quite dry. Load up for a couple weeks and enjoy the speed of the Epsilon. Simply a delightful kayak to paddle while being able to count on its dependability!
This versatile series is available in three sizes – making it accessible to any sized paddler – and available in rotomolded plastic, thermoformed ABS or composite construction. See the table below for technical specifications and paddler weight range for each size.

Primary Stability

Primary stability is a reflection of how stable the kayak feels while sitting still on a calm body of water. A high primary stability is perfect for beginners, photographers and fisherman alike.

Secondary Stability

Secondary stability is the stability felt while edging the boat (leaning the kayak on one side using your hips). A kayak with a poor secondary will require a stronger bracing technique to edge with confidence.

Handling vs Tracking

There is no right or wrong answer here. A kayak that tracks more (more grey) will be easy to keep on a straight course. A loose kayak (more blue) will be easy to turn on a dime and change direction quickly.

Speed

This is the general speed of the kayak, combining acceleration, cruising speed, top speed and how easy it is to keep.

Storage

This represents the total inside storage volume the kayak offers. Rudder equipped kayaks tend to have more storage compared to skegs that take up some space in the rear hatch. A high rating for storage is perfect for a touring paddler.

Paddler level
Beginner

The most important thing to consider while choosing the right kayak is the paddler themselves. One key factor is the skill level of the paddler. The skill level represents what is needed to use the kayak to its full potential. Starting out with an expert boat will not make you a better kayaker and can even hinder your progression.
