The S16 is a light tourer - fast but not too long
Kayak for everyday and travel
The S16 G2 is one of the most popular touring kayaks from Stellar: For the length of 495 cm, it is already a very fast touring kayak that is still compact and can be paddled lively. The shape of the hull supports the directional stability enormously.
With its dimensions, it is the ideal kayak for medium-sized paddlers with a paddler weight of 60 to 100 kg. It has sufficient storage volume for multi-day tours.
The S16 is equipped with a stern, front and day hatch as well as a stern rudder. If ordered individually, a keel strip is also possible, which gives the kayak additional robustness.

Features of this touring kayak at a glance
This is how the light tourer S16 is the most fun
Are you looking for a fast but not too long or bulky tourer? With the S16 you will have a lot of fun on quick after-work rides up to multi-day tours with luggage. It offers you many exciting features for this. Tip: Check out the adventures of Malin & Alin in our blog, who chose the Stellar S16 to paddle down the Danube at record speed.

Fast and sporty gliding - this is particularly interesting if you want to cover a lot of ground! See the Danube adventure in S16
The S16 can be paddled very quickly, but is also balanced and safe. It is also suitable for beginners who want to improve their skills.
Weighing only 17 kilos in the carbon-kevlar layup (multisport), the S16 is also comfortable to carry. We recommend using the handles only when the kayak is empty.
Day hatch and nets with direct access, trough behind the cockpit to assist with paddle floats, adjustable backrest...
The specially designed seat pad reliably removes moisture from the paddler and ensures ventilation - included in all Stellar kayaks!
Typical for Stellar: The long waterline favored by the hull construction! Almost the entire length is on the water.

"My wife and I have been white-water paddlers for over 20 years. Now we wanted light touring kayaks so we could do longer tours on the nearby Rhine or on holiday. We decided on the Stellar S16 and the Stellar S15LV. The fact that we can now easily transfer the light kayaks opens up a combined Altrhein-Rhine round trip of over 15 kilometres for us, and that without using a vehicle. Loading and lashing them on the roof of our motorhome has also become much easier. Both kayaks bring the speed we wanted, but are still manoeuvrable enough. There is no alternative to these boats for us!"

We wanted two light and fast touring kayaks for our project "Danube from the source to the Black Sea" and decided on the S16. Since we both weigh under 70 kg and didn't want to carry too much luggage, this kayak seemed to be the best choice. Although we had never paddled the kayaks before, we were not disappointed as the features were exactly as described. We made very swift progress, even transferring at the numerous weirs was much easier than with the PE kayaks with which we had previously made this trip in 2012. It took us 30 days to cover the 2,600 km and now we hoped to do it in 26 days. In the end, we did the whole trip in 24 days, paddling an average of over 100 km a day! Very good kayaks that were just right for our purposes!

After many great, informative technical discussions with you and the test trip on the side arm of the Rhine, I took my new dream boat, the S 16 G 2 from Stellar in the colours of our Kanu-Club-Speyer e.V. in black and yellow with lots of useful new accessories with me and it had only been in the garage until now due to the weather, it was finally time yesterday in the most beautiful spring weather: maiden voyage! With plenty of sunshine, blue skies and 15 degrees, we went upstream on the Rhine from Speyer (at low water SP 2.40 m, many groynes and sandbanks), through the Berghäuser AR, a dream portage thanks to the new 17 kg (my old PC sea kayak was almost twice as heavy!!!) and back downstream on the Rhine. Of course in record time (both upstream and downstream), sitting perfectly in the super safe, fast, dry-running, easy + fine to steer kayak, with a big grin on my face and the perfectly complementary new equipment (the ingenious Ergo paddle, which I didn't even notice in terms of weight ... ).
These points make the S16 special
Click on the + crosses for more information:
The S16 G2 comes standard with Smart Track rudder.
Large cockpit hatch and comfortable seat
The cockpit hatch measuring 85 x 44 cm offers easy entry and exit.
Oval luggage hatches at the front and rear and sufficient storage space make the S16 G2 the ideal tour, even for multi-day tours.
We configure most touring kayaks in the multisport layup, as this is more robust than the slightly cheaper Advantage layup. However, the S16 G2 can also be ordered in the Advantage layup.
The deck of the S16 G2 is tapered in front of the cockpit. This allows for tight paddle guidance.
If you want, you can order your kayak from us with your own boat name. We then apply it according to customer requirements.
