Ocean Kayak Revamps Trident Series

Purveyors of the original sit-on-top fishing kayak bring anglers myriad new features

Old Town, ME (November 16, 2016) – Ocean Kayak, makers of the original sit-on-top fishing kayak, is proud to introduce an entirely revamped Trident Series, already the choice of serious saltwater anglers around the globe.

Shown for the first time in July 2016 at the sportfishing industry’s largest tradeshow, ICAST 2016, and the Outdoor Retailer Show in early August, media and buyer enthusiasm was electric. All new Trident models began shipping November 1, 2016.

“Our goal with the Ocean Kayak Trident revamp was to make the best even better,” said David Hadden, Brand Director – Watercraft, Johnson Outdoors. “Ocean Kayak has been a leader since the beginning and it’s our mission to keep providing anglers and boaters the features they request…and then some. The hull is still the same legendary Trident hull, but we’ve added numerous deck features that provide a better on-water experience from bow to stern.”

ACS2 Seating

Changes to the fast, smooth and efficiently-paddled Trident 11, 13 and 15 include the addition of the Active Comfort System 2.0 (ACS2) for all-day comfort, redesigned “Mod Pod” for gear management, gunnel accessory tracks, generous hatch storage, and a handy, quick-stow paddle holder.

The ACS2 backrest height adjusts up and down for the ultimate in lumbar support and to accommodate various PFD styles—and improved thigh support without changing kayaker center of gravity. Seat height adjustments off the deck surface are made quickly and efficiently via easy-to-use, grooved tracks.

New Mod Pod Design

The new Mod Pod design is slightly narrower for increased thigh room and to allow easier stand-up fishing. The folding Mod Pod hatch comes standard with two trays that accommodate the footprint of Plano 3600 tackle boxes and also slides fore and aft for access to the inside boat hull. Also includes a cup holder and locking dry storage to protect smartphone, wallet, charger, tools, etc. – and is magnetized to hold clippers, pliers, knives, fishing lures, and other metal fishing utility tools.

Endless Rigging Potential

A total of seven flush aluminum track mounts allow quick rigging of accessories like rod holders, electronics, and POV camera mounts. There is one track mount toward the bow, two mid-ship, two toward the stern, and two built-in the Mod Pod. Mounting plates on both the Mod Pod and boat allow easy rigging of fishfinders and tidy transducer/power cable routing.

 

Maximum Storage & “Cool” Stuff

The bow hatch still provides access to a massive storage area and the included 12-volt battery bag for fishfinder and accessory power. The bow also features a redesigned paddle-keeper for quick paddle-stashing when fighting a fish; also includes rod tip protectors. New Trident models also feature the addition of a rear hatch for increased gear storage.

Additionally, the behind-seat tankwell has been redesigned to allow flush mounting of Ocean Kayak’s new Ice Box, a specially-designed cooler that fits both Ocean Kayak Trident and Old Town Predator Series kayaks, allowing convenient behind-seat storage of fish on ice or simple conversion to livewell with the addition of an aerator. The Ice Box retails for $249.99.

All new Trident models also feature adjustable foot braces and are rudder-ready with

purchase of a separate rudder kit. New Trident models also feature hard, rubber-molded carry handles that resist snagging.
