Reviews & Questions

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my kayak Bought this Kayak end of season. Have been out four times now. Love this particular kayak for its lighter weight and slightly shorter length. I can easily maneuver it inside my RAV 4. It tracks well and is very stable. I don't find that it's tippy at all. The only thing I wish were on it is a small waterproof compartment for car keys etc. I did buy a small waterproof bag to attach to the bungee and it fits in the net under the hull. Can't wait till next spring to start using it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super kayak in lakes and rivers I have been out 35 times so far this season in rivers, ponds, small and large lakes, choppy water as well! And it handles beautifully. Light enough for on top and short enough to nicely fit in my Honda CR-V.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to carry, comfortable kayak This boat is designed really well to be manageable and maneuverable in the water for one person. I had been looking for a kayak the I could load and carry without assistance and this fits the bill perfectly. The seat is very comfortable and adjustable foot braces are great for getting a little extra help from the legs. I am very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Athena 100X excellent kayak Great kayak for women. Is light weight and very easy to carry. I choose the purple and orange kayak. I have used this kayak one time, which was my first and found it very easy to maneuver. It seemed the stability was a little tippy, but I have only used it once.

I sometimes go out on choppy waters (no white caps). I am concerned about swells splashing water into the cockpit. Is there a way to drain the cockpit water if needed while still in it? If it does fill with water, will it sink? How Do I manage that?

Asked by: Barb
This is a recreational kayak and made for calm waters, this kayak should not be in waters where the cockpit has the possibility to fill up with water. However, since we have no control over the weather and it can happen that you get stuck out in stormy weather you can use a bilge pump.

The blue Athena in the video looks more Turquoise than the picture which is more Royal Blue. Is the blue model color like the video or the image?

Asked by: Lola
The video (Turquoise) was a slightly older model. And the blue model ( KLP10P109) is no longer available for the next season to come in 2020. Keep an eye out for the new color to come soon !

What makes this a women's kayak?

Asked by: PurelyNicole
It has been designed to be lighter to transport (less than 40 lb) and also the width has been reduced. A narrower kayak allows for stronger strikes in paddling which provides better tracking! We've also listened to a survey we conducted which told us that women liked better the other types of storage than the hatches. So we added the 2 storage hammocks!

I have an Elie Strait 120. I get that the Athena is shorter so tracking and handling would be effected by that but how would you compare or how would I find/notice the difference between the two. Looking for and alternative or addition with the Athena.

Asked by: FJ
Both models are very different from one another. The Elie Strait 120 has a keel extension which would help alot with the tracking. The Elie has more accessories than the Athena however it is difficult to compare both models as the Athena is more of a basic beginner style kayak and the Elie Strait 120 is a more advanced version. The Deep V Shine Hull on the Elie provides more speed. I have copied a link to compare both hull types The Athena has a twin arched multi-chine hull and the Strait 120 has a deep v-chine hull
