When you look you will notice the Sidekick is greatly different from the others. It is sort of like a kid's version of a Karma. It is not designed as a rodeo/play boat. It is the real deal for superior river running performance that helps the small people stay confident, happy, and interested in continuing a love for the sport. Keeping them enjoying river travels is essential to their growing passion instead of getting scared or hurt and giving up the sport. Play boats (Fun/Fuse) are most appropriate in the safety of easy "park and play" water parks, but the Sidekick will get them advancing their skills with river running through class I-IV as they grow. When they get above 100 lbs it's time to look at a Karma S, and then the M or L as they gain in size. Hopefully your son will grow to enjoy class III-V, experience multi-day river trips, and delight in this wonderful creation we get to enjoy.
Keep it fun, and God bless your adventures.
