The Reflection II is a Play Boat Premium for medium to large sizes.
With this kayak, the priority is control and stability in all circumstances.
Whether you're a beginner or an expert, it will make you want to push your limits. The Reflection II gives you the confidence to dare, where other kayaks will make you feel unstable and therefore brake you to ensure.

The Reflection II has a very large rocker which allows it to surf and change direction on command. That's what's so amazing and what everyone agrees on with this kayak. It's not the one that will impose constraints and limits on you...

It 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 daggerboard not far from the centre of the kayak. In fact, it is placed in the day chamber. Simply lower it completely and the Reflection II will become a steering kayak.

It is manufactured with Sterling's "Strong-Lite" Lay-Ups. Using Premium quality materials, the result is a kayak that weighs between 18 and 23.5 kg, depending on the Lay-Up chosen.

With the ballistic version, the kayak is virtually indestructible and will withstand even the highest temperatures. It is a guarantee of longevity, it is a kayak for life in this construction.

The Progression and Reflection II will fit average sizes in terms of kayak size, volume and navigational schedule. So how do you choose between one or the other?
- Progression: Faster, will seek to go down the wave, attack. For the kayaker who wants to send even if it means losing control. It will go faster on a tour as well but has a lower load capacity. This kayak is less adapted to very strong sizes.
- Reflection II: Slower but more stable than the Progression. Like some downhill kayaks, when the rapids become big and technical, it is finally the more stable and slower kayak that will pass the best, because you can concentrate on speed and not on balance. This kayak remains extremely playful. It is therefore aimed at those who want safety above all else to be able to engage with confidence. When hiking, it will allow you to take a lot of equipment. This kayak will be better suited than the Progression with its very large size.
