Fastest kayak

What is the fastest kayak in production currently? The epic x?

Sprint kayaks

Based on pure speed I would say the Olympic style sprint kayaks would be the fastest. I've seen them take down 8 men crew boats in head to heads. In surf an Epic would do. In whitewater it would be a downriver Wildwater boat. For gates it would be a slalom kayak. Depends which environment you are paddling in to determine the fasted craft.

Grand Canyon speed records

I was thinking about the kayaks that have been chosen for Grand Canyon speed decents. Perhaps a better question is is there a better boat for a speed desent than the epic x?
When I read the report it looked like the boat was fast but I wonder if faster models exist ?
