The Progression is above all a Play Boat Premium.
It is designed for medium sized paddlers who are going to navigate in extreme conditions... Or just play.
Its name fits perfectly. It will allow high-level kayakers to push their limits, go further and simply progress in their practice.

For us, he is the "Holy Grail" of Play Boats. Many key design are inspired by white-water kayaks. It also has the rigidity and responsiveness of competition kayaks, plus strength.

On the day when sea is not rought, the Progression will allow you to play and have unique sensations. Surf forward or backward, make nice curves and change direction effortlessly, glide, progress in your Roll, here is a small glimpse of the possibilities of this kayak.

Its design, its good initial stability, will allow the beginner to be immediately confident.

The Progression has a very important rocker which allows it to surf and change direction on command. That's what's amazing and what makes the unanimity with this kayak. It is not the one that will impose constraints, limits... This kayak will follow you throughout your progression!

Still, he's anything but a barge. Its unique hull allows it to be fast. Not as fast as a pure touring kayak, but much faster than other real Play Boats.

The Progression turns at the slightest request, effortlessly. This is one of the characteristics of Sterling kayaks. So to go straight, stay on course, whether it's windy or not, Sterling has positioned the skeg not far from the center of the kayak. In fact, it is placed in the day hatch. Simply lower it completely and the Progression will become a kayak that goes straight.

It is manufactured with Sterling's "Strong-Lite" Lay-Ups. Using premium quality materials, the result is a kayak that weighs between 17 and 22.5 kg, depending on the Lay-Up chosen.
