The 2013 Tiderace Dealer's Workbook:
The new models (more specifically) are:
Pace Evoke- The Pace 18 in 15'9" form, and with a 4-hatch layout instead of the 18's 3 hatches.
Pace 17 Tour- Basically a 17', 4-hatch version of the Pace 18.
(both of the shorter Paces have slightly wider beams and more rocker than the 18... so perhaps a bit more all-around/'sea-kayak-y' than the 18, though still with the long-waterline design)
Xtra 'LV' - A smaller version of the Xtra playboat... but it now becomes the regular Xtra (no LV in the name, even though that's what it is). The current Xtra is retained, but is re-named the 'Xtra HV'. Yeah, that's not confusing at all.
Vortex - As mentioned previously, a rotomold version of the Xtra.
The only disappointment is that TR's uber-awesome 'graphics' paint-job remains available only on the Xtra and Xtreme... would be great to see it on offered on all their boats. IMO, it's the best-looking paint-job offered on any kayak anywhere.
That quibble aside, seems like TR is fleshing out their lineup quite nicely.
