Joyride 12.0
MSRP ($):
Length (ft):

The Joyride 12.0 by Perception is a lifestyle-inspired recreational kayak, that is designed for lakes and ponds, slow-moving rivers and streams or calm coastal waters. It is a single person sit-inside kayak that is 12'2" long, 27.25" wide and weighs of 54 lbs. The Joyride 12.0 can handle a maximum weight capacity of 350 lbs.

The Joyride 12.0 features a stable hull that has been designed for safety as well as to provide users with paddling. It also has molded-in carry handles on the bow and stern of the kayak for easy transporting or to help with securing the kayak. In addition, this kayak has a serviceable drag plate to allow for worry-free paddling.

In terms of comfort, the Joyride 12.0 has Zone Deluxe thigh-pads that also help with support. It also comes with a Zone Deluxe padded and adjustable seating system that allows for a custom fit for better comfort. Although the Joyride 12.0 does not have any built-in rod holders, it does feature two solo mount recesses, that can be used for mounting accessories. This requires the Perception Solo Mount Base, which is sold separately, but it is compatible with RAM accessories, such as fishing rod holders and fish-finders.

Perception hasn't skimped on storage options either with the Joyride 12.0. It comes with an easy to open hinged hatch-cover that is designed to keep any accessories that you have stowed away safe and protected. The stern bulkhead wall doesn't just provide rear storage, but also excellent buoyancy and flotation. Finally, it has two smaller Easy Lash Bungee Dashboard compartments that allow for quick access to secured gear. Anglers who enjoy photographing or capturing video of their catches will also appreciate the Selfie Slot of this kayak that is designed for safely securing and viewing small, portable electronics.

Overall, the Joyride 12.0 is a fairly decent kayak for recreational use and it can easily be used for angling by adding a couple of accessories. The only drawback is that avid anglers may find that this kayak doesn't have enough space for all their gear as it lacks a rear tank-well.
