Sleek and fast, the Eskimo 16
CRX 3G is a favorite with small to medium-sized paddlers
who find the 300-pound capacity of this kayak ideal for
With its 23-inch beam, the Eskimo 16 slips effortlessly
through the water and tracks beautifully in all seas and
wind conditions -- even with the rudder retracted.
Furthermore, this model comes with all the outfitting and
deluxe features of every single kayak in the Eskimo CRX
series: moldings for Easy Rider's exclusive outrigger and
catamaran options, a highly refined re-entry system, deck
compass, rudder, anti-theft security eye-strap, elastic
deck tie-downs, and paddle-park cleats.
Add a few options -- like an Outrigger and a high-performance
Airfoil Sail -- and this boat will have you sailing into
the wind and racing sailboats rather than kayaks.
A kayak with a choice.

"Most outdoor gear is not made
for my 5'3", 110-pound frame. In search of a kayak
I tried a roto-molded plastic boat. This weighed almost
70 pounds -- empty! As I nestled into the seat of an Eskimo
16, I thought, This is my boat!' In terms of stability,
maneuverability, construction, comfort, and safety, the
reviews of the Easy Rider Expedition kayaks consistently
confirmed what my own experience was telling me. The Eskimo
16 is light enough for me to lift, carry, and get on and
off my car. The adjustable seat is the most comfortable
of any boat I had tried. The forward and aft hatches eliminate
torturous, body-twisting packing and unpacking routines.
The Eskimo's lines are simple and attractive to my eye.
I said to myself: Yes, I deserve
a fine sea-touring kayak!"
