Weight Capacity
« on: October 21, 2017, 02:52:58 PM »
I'm sure this question has been asked before, but what is the weight capacity?  I'm looking to get a 2012 or newer model and am not sure how it will work for me.  I'm 250lbs.  What kind of speed can I get at that weight on flat water and what is the max capacity?  Thanks

I want to say the capacity is 350 lbs but I can't say for sure. A stock 2012 in good condition will get around 6-8 mph on flat water with a 250 occupant.

Thanks Tom,  Would a new model get me more speed with the same 250lbs?

Glad to help. You might see 9-10 in the ES-kape in optimal conditions.

I just read your post.
I'm 6'5" and 300lbs, and I have zero problems with stability. It won't go quite as fast, but like Tom just told me, they are not made for speed.
