Wilderness Radar 135 Kayak

Description

The Wilderness Systems Radar 135 is the first tri-powered kayak with paddle power and pedal capabilities. It is equipped with S. M. A. R. T. Outerwear Hull technology, which offers stability, maneuverability, acceleration, responsiveness, and tracking for excellent performance in any environment. This model has received high praise in the Kayak Angler Magazine (2018), where it was described as "fishing like a dream."

In addition to providing a flat platform for standing and freedom of movement, the Radar 135 comes with state-of-the-art outfitting. It includes expansive SlideTrax rails, a paddle park, numerous storage opportunities, and scupper options to easily deploy the Helix md motor drive. Furthermore, the kayak offers multiple electronics options, such as down-imaging, side-scanning, or both. The adjustable bungee in the rear tank well accommodates crates, livewells, and tackle boxes.

The Radar 135 is compatible with both the Helix PD pedal drive and the Helix MD Motor Drive (both sold separately). When using the Helix PD pedal drive, the built-in steering control system allows for easy navigation and hands-free fishing. Please note that the Helix PD pedal drive and Helix MD motor drive are sold separately.

This tri-powered kayak is highly versatile and promises a comfortable experience on the water. The Ultra-comfortable and adjustable AirPro Max Seat offers three adjustable positions and allows the seat to travel the majority of the length of the boat. Additionally, the Flex Pod OS is a fully removable pod that can accommodate your fish finder, battery, cables, and transducer, or it can be used to house the pedal drive or motor drive.

The Wilderness Systems Radar 135 also features essential angling features such as SlideTrax rails for accessories, a front paddle park, multiple hatches, a generous tank well storage, and large padded footrests that can be adjusted to fit paddlers of different sizes. It offers everything an angler needs to hit the water.

Now, let's address some frequently asked questions about the Wilderness Systems Radar 135:

Q: Would you dare class 2 rapids in it? I like to fish on the James River but this means hitting some whitewater on the way...

A: Yes. Class 2 rapids are generally within the capability of this boat.

Q: So this price is for a kayak and what else?

A: Order from Kayak City, and we will throw in a free paddle.

Q: Does the pedaling system collapse if you hit an underwater obstruction?

A: Mine didn’t, but hitting an obstruction may cause the hold-down bracket to fail, rendering the pedal system useless.

Q: Radar 135. Does this come with a Werner paddle? Is Texas sales tax added?

A: Mine did not come with a paddle, and sales tax may be added depending on your location within Texas.
