New Wilderness Systems Ride for 2012

 Joining the ranks of other fineries that get better with age, the all new
Wilderness Systems Ride 115 and redesigned Ride 135 for 2012 turns up the amplitude on all the qualities that made the original a classic, and delivers better capabilities to continue fueling the passion for kayak fishing. The Ride series has long been associated with rock-solid stability for paddlers of all sizes. The 2012 models hold true to that heritage, while offering massive capacity, straightforward storage, versatile performance, easy rigging and true stand-up capability. Particularly with the brand new  Ride 115 in the line-up, the Ride now offers a compact, easy-to-manage choice that doesn’t skimp on storage.

The performance is in the hull. The new Ride plows through surf, moves in and out of  inland waterways, coastal areas, rivers and cruises on flatwater. The overhauled design is quiet on-water and boasts a drier ride than ever before.

The fun is on the deck. The new floor layout, including widened, flat footwells, makes it one of the easiest boats to stand up in. The Ride 115 is actually the first kayak on the market under 12-feet to give true stand-up confidence.

The newly added sliding, removable Freedom Elite Seating System is designed so paddlers can trim their load on the fly (for launching through surf), or adjust maneuverability (for river performance or tracking). With a series of new deck features the Ride offers wider, flatter surfaces and intuitive compartments for rods, reels, depth finders and more, right at your fingertips. The popular SlideTrax tool-less accessory rails have been added near the cockpit to keep even the most rabid gear hound organized.

What makes the all-new Ride 115 stand above all others is itsThe 2012 Ride Series is here! All-new design for the Ride 135 and a new option - the Ride 115 comes in under 12 feet with exceptional capacity portability.  Gear junkies can still load it down and bring home the big one, but now in a boat that’s easy to carry, store, and offers even more maneuverability. When it comes to versatility, the Ride series is unmatched.”
“Wilderness Systems kayaks are built to the highest performance and quality standards possible, and the new Ride series is no exception. It is also the most comfortable ride on the water, featuring Phase 3 padding. To top it off, the series has been tested and fine-tuned by the Wilderness Systems Pro Fishing staff to meet their own standards. No”
