Pedal drive kayaks are becoming more and more popular, especially with anglers as they give hands free propulsion allowing the fisherman to cast and play a fish whilst moving. The Riot Mako 10 comes with the new Impulse drive – this propeller system allows the kayaker to pedal both forwards and backwards controlling the direction of the kayak with a hand operated rudder. The Impulse Drive unit is very light and can easily be removed and securely clipped to the bow of the kayaks when in shallow water.

The Mako is very well thought out with a comfortable seat that can be moved back and forth on rails to accommodate for different height pedalers.  At 23kg with the seat and drive removed, the Mako 10 is one of the lightest pedal drive kayaks around and can easily be car topped by one person.

Despite its light weight, the Mako has a full complement of fishing accessories already fitted including several gear tracks, flush mounted rod holders and even a fully fitted anchor trolley on each side.

If you are looking for light and easily manoeuvrable fishing kayaks with excellent stability that can be powered by just using your feet then look no further!
