The deluxe removable seating system provides all-day comfort plus the option to use it on land. The large, open cockpit offers greater flexibility in cargo management as well as easier short entry and exit, with minimal restriction of movement while on the water. Adjustable foot braces let you personalize your fitting for maximum flexibility and comfort regardless of water types or conditions. The cooler hold-down system in the stern cockpit allows quick access and proper storage of a cooler up to 36 qt. The quick-rest paddle holders let you set your paddle down momentarily without having to secure it away in the paddle keeper. The bow bungee lets you lock down gear on the bow for safer transport and easy access. A deep-molded cup holder and 2 large catch-all trays provide storage right in the cockpit. At the end of the day, the threaded, sealed drain plug ensures quick drainage of any excess water, while the molded-over rubber grip handles at the front and rear make carrying the D10 Ascend kayak a breeze.
