A PLAYBOAT FOR THE WHOLE RIVER
We love the kayak industry’s renewed focus on floating down rivers, but that doesn’t mean play-boating is out. The Fuse brings a river runner’s sensibility to freestyle: “Its edges were aggressive enough that moves didn’t feel mushy but soft enough that boiling eddies were not an issue,” said one tester. The Fuse is easy to cartwheel and loop, but it’s still stable and fast enough to pick apart rapids. This is the boat for paddlers who love to play all the way from put-in to take-out. And thanks to its plush outfitting, you’ll be comfortable all day long. 6’4″; 35, 48, 56, and 64 gal; wavesport.com
