Size, weight, capacity

The Coupe XP is designed to maximise stability, comfort and cruising capabilities. With this in mind, the kayak is 10’ (305cm) long and 30” (76cm) wide.

Weighing in at 50lbs (23kg), the Coupe isn’t particularly heavy, but the nature of the hull means it is unlikely that you’ll be carrying this too far on your own. Fortunately Liquidlogic have fitted a wheel at the stern, so once you’ve got it off your car it’s easy to get to the water.

Maximum paddler weight for the Coupe XP is 260lbs (118kg).

Features

This really is a boat designed for a bit of everything and the hull shape alone proves this. A slight bow rocker combines with a soft v-shape hull and forgiving edes, giving the front of the boat the ability to drive through waves and sit high enough out of the water to turn, while also gripping in windy conditions to aid tracking.

Following the waterline back, you come to a flatter mid-to-rear section with a defined keel line to aid tracking. This is augmented by a spring loaded keel which can be deployed at the stern for open water sections.

The seat on this sit-on-top follows Liquidlogic’s usual approach of ‘make it really comfortable and people will paddle it all day’. Padded, supportive and with an adjustable backrest, you can expect a good level of connectivity in this boat. The moulded footwells allow you to move quickly between a relaxed or engaged paddling position too.

A small storage hatch in front of the paddler is perfect for items you may want to access on the water, while at the rear of the boat there is another hatch with more interior space. On the top deck is a recess which is large enough for some dry bags or boxes for those on longer trips. These are secured with bungee.

The wheel at the rear of the boat allows you to move the kayak around easily on your own by using the ergonomic front grab handle. There is also a moulded rear grab handle in case you need to move the boat as a pair, for example through more difficult terrain.

Performance

The Coupe XP is about as versatile a sit-on-top kayak as possible, which still manages to perform well in every environment. The hull itself works whether you’re covering long distances on gentle moving water, negotiating low grade rapids or paddling ocean breaks and the flat rear section means it surfs well too.

As usual, Liquidlogic have got the outfitting spot on and it’s a really comfortable boat which offers huge amounts of connection for a sit-on-top. Thigh braces are available, although sold separately, and these make an enormous difference to the technical capabilities of this boat.
