Great for beginners and experts alike, the Zen is fast, responsive and stable. The new 2nd generation Zen borrows its hull and edges mostly from the original Zen, while the volume, displacement and flared sidewalls come from the extremely popular Karma. The result is a boat that is comfortable in big water as it is in the steep and shallow.
- Beginners will love the stability and forgiveness of the Zen, with ample leg room and comfortable, easy-to-adjust outfitting.
- Intermediates will love the Zen when progressing into bigger and more difficult whitewater, with a boat that is forgiving but not lacking in performance and speed.
- Experts will love the speed and maneuverability of the Zen in big water paddling, river running, and creeking, with enough room for overnight gear for those multi-day self-support missions.
