Our kayaks are designed to provide a unique mix of stability, functionality and comfort for paddlers of all skill levels. ASCEND designers work to craft the highest-quality gear at the best possible value. Your new kayak is manufactured from superior materials and state-of-the-art processes to ensure maximum durability. With proper care and maintenance, you can expect years of enjoyment from your new ASCEND kayak.

State-of-the-art manufacturing equipment

ASCEND kayaks are designed and manufactured using computer-aided tools and modern rotomolding equipment to deliver the consistent quality and functionality sought by kayak users.

Quality materials and parts

ASCEND kayaks are made from a patented high-density polyethylene called AQUATUF that is specifically designed for kayaks. AQUATUF has excellent long-term UV protection and superior durability in comparison to other materials.

Quality construction

ASCEND kayaks are consistently strong throughout due to our practice of increasing nominal wall thickness. This maximizes durability for extreme environments and protects against wear-thru and puncture for maximum safety.

World-class manufacturing process

Our Lean Sigma manufacturing methods create a culture of continuous improvement. Associates throughout the organization are trained to draw upon their knowledge and creativity to discover ways to improve efficiency, reduce costs and cut waste. The resulting savings are passed along to the customer in the form of lower prices.

Superior Safety

ASCEND is one of only two kayak brands (Hobie is the other) certified by the National Marine Manufacturers Association® (NMMA). That means our kayaks meet, and often exceed, strict quality and safety standards established by the U.S. Coast Guard and American Boat & Yacht Council. As a result, U.S. Coast Guard statistics show NMMA-certified boats to be the safest on the water.
