Size and Weight
With a 10’ (304.8 cm) length, the Triton 100 is a recreational boat that strikes a nice compromise between tracking ability and portability. Its 30.5” (77.5 cm) width also provides a natural amount of stability and seating space for added comfort as you paddle.
Despite its length, the boat comes with a relatively modest weight of 48 lbs (21.8 kg). While there are certainly lighter options out there, the Triton 100 is still easy enough to lift and transport, thanks to its bow and stern handles.
Featuring a weight capacity of 275 lbs (124.7 kg), the Triton 100 is a good option for smaller and mid-sized paddlers with minimal gear. Since one shouldn’t load a boat beyond 80% of its maximum capacity, this kayak is appropriate for anyone under 220 lbs (99.8 kg).
While it does have a small rear tankwell with a bungee cord system for storing gear, paddlers should also consider the weight of their gear before loading this boat up for a camping trip.
For most paddlers, the weight capacity of the Triton 100 is more than sufficient to transport them, some snacks and beverages, and some spare layers for the day, but it’s likely not enough for a camping trip.
Even though it has a relatively affordable price, the Triton 100 comes with a few great features to help improve your comfort on the water.
First and foremost, it has an adjustable seat back and a seat pad. These help provide the lumbar support and cushioning you need to enjoy a long day out on your local lake.
Additionally, it comes with a small stern tankwell for gear storage, as well as a built-in water bottle holder to encourage you to stay hydrated on your paddle.
Other than that, the Triton 100 is decidedly slim on extra frills in an attempt to keep its weight and price at a minimum.
Although it’s a recreational kayak, Lifetime designed this boat with some key characteristics that help improve its performance in the water.
It features a flat hull with minimal rocker to help improve its primary stability in calm conditions. Additionally, the Triton 100 comes with an integrated skeg that helps to improve overall tracking ability over longer paddles.
To help you drive and maneuver the boat with relative ease, the Triton 100 comes with a set of footrests that are molded into the cockpit to accommodate paddlers of different heights. That way, you can paddle more efficiently and better control the kayak when performing maneuvers.
Due to the boat’s flat hull and rounded chine, it’s best for use in calm waters as it lacks the secondary stability necessary for harsh conditions.
Summing up, the Triton 100 is designed for kayakers that aren’t interested in a boat with a large price tag. While it is not meant to be used in choppy seas or on particularly windy days, it is a viable option for fun trips on sunny days.
