New Customizable Angler Packages Make Kayak Angling Even Easier

Greenville, S.C. – Wilderness Systems unveils the Ride 115X, an unparalleled angling kayak package for 2014. The Ride 115X features the same stability, maneuverability and capacity anglers have come to know and love in the Ride 115, with a “wish list” of design features and accessory upgrades just for fishing.

Working closely with well-­‐known kayak angler, Chad Hoover, and other members of its Pro Staff, Wilderness Systems took all the best qualities of the extremely popular Ride 115 and added highly customizable features to make it the ideal fishing kayak.

Ride115X

New features of the Ride 115X include a removable console that reveals a large pass through the hull, including a battery storage area. Eight inches of SlideTrax along the stern tankwell and under the removable console, and the increased bulkhead width, provide more flexibility for mounting accessories. Security bars on the stern provide excellent options for securing gear with web straps or carabiners, and a stand up assist strap eases the transition from a seated to standing position.

Add the Phase 3® AirPro, the most innovative and comfortable seating system on the market (available in standard, Advance or Advance Angler options), and you have the perfect yak angling machine. The Ride 115X Advance and Advance Angler come with the Phase 3 AirPro Advance seat, an elevated seat with 4” of height for better visibility. 

Features & Benefits:

  • Rigid aluminum carry handles with foam comfort sleeves
  • Additional scupper tube for increased support in the standing area
  • Replace deck fitting with security bars on the stern for greater flexibility in securing gear with web straps or carabiners
  • Removable console that reveals a large pass through the hull, including a battery storage area and molded-­‐in inserts allowing for quick installation of a transducer battery and head unit
  • 8” SlideTraxTM along the stern tankwell and under the removable console
  • Stand Up Assist strap to ease in transitioning from a seated to standing position
  • Increased bulkhead width to provide more flexibility in mounting accessories
  • Available in nine colors
