Think Fit looks like a K1 kayak -the ones used in the Olympics. According the manufacturer, the basic design was indeed based on 1960's K1 with modifications. I believe the width was increased amongst other features. So the stability is very good....like a 20" wide kayak. Secondary stability is slightly less.
First I noticed is the nice orange & gray color scheme. The weight is light at about 30# or so. There is no problem with portage. But the best feature of Think Fit is not the weight but the cockpit design. The comfort factor is one of the best, slightly better than my Epic V-10 Sports. The whole cockpit is like a bathtub. It is one piece and sealed from the hull. I believe it is the same one used on Think Evo surfski.
This is an exercise machine....fast and comfortable to paddle and lite weight. The only done side is after a capsize, the hull sits high on the water. But with proper re-mount technique, it's not an issue.
