DESIGN STATEMENT:
The Q700X is designed to be the ultimate fast-touring sea kayak and the flagship of the QCC Kayaks brand. This kayak is intended to run dry, be readily maneuverable, paddle efficiently and cruise fast. Drawing from the successful Q600X hull design, length was added and the shape was adjusted slightly to give the longer boat the same feel, even when more heavily loaded. The resulting hull design is clean, efficient and fast on calm water while at the same time very controllable in short, steep chop with the ability to surf. The Q700X is designed for larger paddlers and those who pack “the kitchen sink” as well as the fitness and go-fast paddlers who seek and appreciate the efficiency, tracking and race-capable speed.
    -John Winters, Designer
