We have one new 18XS in Expedition Construction, due into the UK in April. 

The Epic 18X family is designed for intermediate to advanced touring paddlers seeking a distinct edge in a high-performance kayak. Paddlers find that the sleek, efficient shape and long waterline enable them to cover long distances with exceptional ease and speed, and deliver excellent performance in rough water conditions. In addition to all the features that come standard on an Epic, the 18X family includes the advanced Epic Track Master™ steering system, an adjustable seat, large storage capacity, and front deck cutaways for a closer, more efficient stroke. Whether out for an hour, a day, or an extended expedition, paddlers will discover the 18X family offers the ultimate paddling experience.

While the 18X and the 18X Sport share the same overall width and length, the 18X Sport is .75" wider when measured at the 4" waterline.

The cockpit is 16”x33.5” (inside), 18”x35.5” (outside of coaming)
