Riot Air (55) What do you think of this boat? I haven't seen one on gearswap for a long time(cant remember when). I know that alot of skirts wont fit right, but how does the boat preform in the shallow rivers and small waves we have right now. I'm 6'1'' and 185 lbs, would I go with the air 55 or 60? Who carries riot in Colorado??? Thanks for the comments....

Air 55 at your weight. I have the 55 and I'm 5'10", 195.. works great. Awesome boat, too bad more people don't get to demo them. Try Summit Kayak Supply or Colorado Kayak Supply.

The Air 55 would be ideal, I am 5,11 and about 165 and paddled the 55 and found it just a touch too big, although I found it easy to roll. The turbo 52 is an even better boat if you can aford one boat only and still plays well. I have seen PANABOATER tear it up relentlessly in a turbo even in levels around 400 cfs here in Steamboat.

THe air 55 is a great boat! Paddled one all last season but was a bit heavy. Wish I weighed what you did.

What do you want the boat to do? What are you into? the air 55 and the turbo 52 are both great just depends what you're looking for.

If you'd like to paddle the Turbo 52 I have one for sale (make you a good deal) and live near golden.
