The EKone is the latest evolution of the popular and highly successful Epic Legacy K1 & K2 range. 

Distinguished by its sweeping seam line and powerful stern, the advanced hull designs provide maximum speed while offering more stability that you might expect from a kayak of this class. It is suitable for both advanced and intermediate paddlers. Available in four unique K1 volumes and three K2 volumes.

Designed by Epic. Crafted by Kirton. 

Conceived and developed by the legendary talents of multiple olympic medalist Greg Barton and naval architect Ted Van Dusen, the EKone family brings a unique and competitive offering to the world of sprint and marathon racing. To complete this world-class offering, we’ve partnered with the English manufacturer, Kirton Kayaks. With over 50 years of experience, and a reputation for extreme build-quality, Kirton brings their latest constructions and fittings to the table.

Contact

Give us a call or send an email if you have any questions. After all, that's what we're here for! We won't sell you anything you don't need. We just want you to be in the right boat.

Deposit

We'll need a minimum 10% deposit to secure your build slot. Do this as soon as possible to prevent delays to your order. The deposit may be paid by bank transfer or card.

Choices

We can only start your build once we have your final specification, so don’t delay too long. The choices can be overwhelming so please ask if you are unsure about anything.

Payment

We will give you a call or send an email when your boat is ready for collection. Full payment should be made before the boat leaves the factory, but you can look the boat over first.

Collect

Shipping kayaks is pricey so you'll probably want to collect the boat from our Devon factory. We can often deliver to the canoeing events we attending too.
