A revolutionary new kayak is expected to hit the markets this spring, bringing with it a whole new range of capabilities and features for those in the kayak fishing arena. The TriKayak XS-1, with its unique outrigger design, offers the stability, performance, and storage that many kayak anglers are looking for.

The very capable TriKayak XS-1 was designed to meet the needs of recreational kayakers and kayak anglers alike. Its adjustable outrigger deployment system provides a stable platform, allowing anglers to comfortably stand while casting. The outriggers also take the hassle out of launching, whether it'd be from a shoreline or a dock – getting in and out of the cockpit is a breeze.

Its v-shaped hull is 12.3 feet long – made of high quality plastics with additives that increase the boat's hardness and fade resistance. The outrigger's lightweight aluminum arms are attached to high-strength stainless steel brackets that are built to last and will never rust.

The company's founder, Jim Reynolds, teamed up with a group of industrial designers at Laut Design to build a kayak that is both fast and stable. Started in June 2012, over a year-and-a-half of design and testing has led to the creation of the TriKayak XS-1.

The TriKayak XS-1 will be available for pre-order Kickstarter for 35 days from February 3-March 10. Pre-orders placed on Kickstarter will ship in spring 2014. Visit http://kck.st/1gGdZWX .
