Perception Collaborates with Clemson for a Limited-Edition Clemson Tigers Kayak Commemorating the National Championship

Greenville, SC (July 10, 2019) – Perception Kayaks, a global leader in kayak innovation and design, is proud to announce the first collaboration with higher learning institution Clemson University. The Greenville based company has received the exclusive rights to manufacture and sell the first and only Clemson University National Championship Tribe.

The University will be sending representatives from Clemson, the Clemson Tiger Mascot and the National Championship trophy to the Confluence Headquarters to kickoff production of the first Clemson University National Championship Tribe. Sporting the university’s iconic orange colors, Tiger paw logo and purple accents, this kayak is one for the true fans. Honoring the team’s historic two title victories in the past three years, with the Clemson National Championship logo highlighted squarely on the seat back.

The Perception Tribe 9.5’ was chosen for the Clemson National Championship collaboration because the series of sit-on-top kayaks is defined by their ultra-stable, yet quick and playful performance. The entire family will appreciate how easy it is to get on and off this stable sit-on-top. Featuring an extra-padded and National Championship branded adjustable seat, the Clemson Tribe is ready for full days exploring flat-water rivers, lakes, ponds, and coastal waters with light waves.
