Perception Expression 14 & 15


 Made in the UK Manufactured in the UK


The Perception Expression 14 & 15 touring kayaks are perfect for a days paddle around the Cornish coastline or even overnight camping trips. Like all Perception Kayaks, the Expression's are top quality with comfortable outfitting that works very well. Large cockpits make restricted access and exiting a problem of the past and offer ample room for a wide range of paddler sizes.


The Expression 14 is ideal if you're looking for a slightly livelier and more nimble ride. The lower volume ergonomics allow for close control and also give a great fit for smaller paddlers. The Expression 15 has a touch more length and volume than the Expression 14. This gives more space and forgiveness for average- to large-size paddlers, and carries heavier loads without compromising handling abilities.


With the choice of Zone DLX or Zone EXP outfitting and availability of two size options for the Perception Expression, you can be assured of a comfortable fit. It has a slight V-shaped hull which is very reassuring yet responsive. This touring and sea kayak is not unduly tippy and responds to edging as a kayak of these proportions should, while the spring-loaded TruTrack skeg is quickly available to assist you when the wind or currents pick up.


The Perception Expression is Perception's replacement for the Carolina 15.


The Expression 14 & 15 are available with two backrest options: the DLX Outfitting Backrest or the EXP Outfitting Backrest.

We offer a delivery service for the Perception Expression 14 & 15 throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.


Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.


Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales
