Tootega’s Pulse 120 tandem sit on top kayak is an all round siton for those who fancy playing in waves, exploring their local river or touring lakes and other watery expanses – all with a paddling partner. A sit-on made for two, the Pulse 120 is a lightweight, stable but manoeuvrable family fun machine.

As Tootega state, the Pulse 120’s DNA is rooted firmly in the successful (and critically acclaimed) Pulse line and draws on design found with the brand’s smaller 85 and 95 versions. The 120 has been tweaked to deliver a svelte outline but it keeps many of the features that make the Tootega Pulse range ever popular. Roomy cockpit areas, large 6” storage hatches, bottle holders, paddle keepers and solid anchor points for tricking your Pulse out – the 120 tandem siton kayak is another fine example from Tootega’s range.

    Having previously owned an
    Having previously owned an Xplore Duo kayak, I was keen to find something as well designed and nice to paddle, but lighter and easier to transport, as I’m usually going out with my 6 year old son, who is not so useful at helping me get it on the car!

    The Pulse 120 is much lighter and narrower than the Xplore Duo, and hence I can lift it up onto the roof bars without assistance, this is a major plus. This did however leave me concerned that the reduced weight and width would compromise the stability.

    I didn’t need to worry, the Pulse 120 is very stable, providing a lot of confidence in choppy waters whilst still being much more responsive and manoeuvrable than it’s length would suggest. We spent a couple of days exploring the channels and creeks of Chichester harbour and it was easy to paddle both with and against tide.

    The attention to detail, finish and build quality is very good, and surpasses that of any other sit-on-top that I have looked at previously.

    There are 2 waterproof hatches and storage space between the seats and at the rear, providing ample room for gear for a day trip with a picnic.

    It has fitments for attaching seats/backrests, which are readily available from kayak retailers. I moved over the ones I used with my Xplore Duo which fitted perfectly.

    I would have no hesitation recommending this kayak to anyone looking to go exploring with a partner or looking for something safe and stable to introduce younger children to kayaking.
