Which still sounds sexist and wrong. Why don't we say the Revo 11 is for old people and the Revo 13 is for young people? That would be wrong too.
There are women in my own family that could out muscle men in my family. There are young people that couldn't hold a candle next to the older members of this forum. Let's leave discriminatory comments aside, and let everyone decide the best boat for themselves based on the features of the boat, not the perceived strengths or weaknesses of a specific demographic.
EDIT: I was thinking about this again. My wife had a Revolution 13 and loved it. Even if the above statements don't come across as sexist, they're still flat out inaccurate. If I was going to buy a new Hobie Kayak today, for myself, it would be the Revolution 11, and I'm a male.
Both boats are great for both genders, and the deciding factor will come down to the end user, and what features matter most to them. Neither one should be labelled a woman's boat, or a man's boat as neither boat has any design features that would eliminate one gender over the other. This is important because there are kayak companies that tailor features like seats, and other pieces to men's and women's unique hip structure etc. Hobie does not do this.
