Sorry fish, surviving just got a tad tougher. Anglers: Put this on your kayak fishing radar: Wilderness Systems just announced the release of its newest fish-slaying machine, the tri-powered Radar 135 and Radar 115 kayak, leaving a wake by paddle, pedal or electric motor…
“It’s the culmination of anything and everything a kayak angler would want or need in a fishing kayak,” says marketing director Evan Lyendecker. “There is nothing like it on the market today.”
The Radar is a tri-powered kayak that can be paddled, powered by the Helix MD™ Motor Drive ($1,999 USD) or pedaled with the groundbreaking, patent-pending new Helix PD™ Pedal Drive ($1,100 USD) launching Spring 2017. Its S.M.A.R.T. Hull Technology combines stability, maneuverability, acceleration, responsiveness and tracking for optimal performance in multiple water environments and configurations. The Radar’s comprehensive design includes an upswept bow for a dry ride, a defined keel line for excellent tracking, a rockered chine for responsive steering, and supreme stand-up stability in any water environment.
Wilderness Systems’ uber-cush seating continues with the AirPro MAX high-low seat. It can be ergonomically trimmed for paddling or pedaling positions, and can also be stowed in a vertical position to increase standing area. With new quick adjust levers, users can slide the seat fore and aft to set leg length, essential with use of the Helix PD Pedal Drive or adjusting the trim of a fully loaded boat.
Both models also feature tricked-out outfitting including SlideTrax™ rails and mega storage opportunities. To boot, its Flex Pod system lets you deploy side-scanning or down-imaging electronics while using either of the Helix Propulsion Technologies. The boats also come with matte glass bead finish on the deck to reduce glare and are available in six colors: Desert Camo, Dusk, Mango, Midnight, Sonar, and Solar.
