The new Air Pro Max seat from Wilderness Systems is a pretty sweet kayak seat. We recently received our first shipment of Wilderness Systems Ride 115X Max kayaks and the Air Pro Max seat comes standard. But that isn't the only awesome improvement to this battle tested kayak fishing machine. We'll get to the others shortly. First, a picture.
Here's what Wildy has to say about their seat.
"Fully functional in existing Ride models with great ease of installation, the patent-pending seat has a full forward/aft trim range and three phase high, low and recline positioning without any clipping or loosening of straps. Standing room remains ample and the seat back can be folded and sat upon for even more height on the water. The aluminum tube frame construction is highly durable with an all-weather, breathable textile that affords both comfort and functionality with opportunities for side pocket and tackle box storage."
The seat even has a"laid back" setting for those moments when you need to deploy a little gangsta lean.
So, what else is awesome about the new Wilderness Systems Ride 115X max? Well, the whole Wildy line-up is getting a make-over. The seat is pretty baller, but what caught my eye was the new foot braces. I like the added surface area and the padded grooves. I think people will be quite impressed with this simple improvement.
The other sweet modification is the new hatches. Wilderness Systems has updated the Orbix hatches and they appear to be awesome upgrades in the watertight realm. The hatches, with their enhanced groove track, now pack a much tighter seal.
So there is my first, quick look at the new Wilderness Systems Ride 115X Max. I've been a fan of the Ride 115 for a while now. It has a surprising amount of speed and maneuverability built into that super stable tri-hull design. Now you add the improved foot braces, hatches and Phase 3 Air Pro Max seat to last year's removable console and you have a pretty cool kayak fishing rig. The Air Pro Max seat is definitely worth the hype. It's comfortable, well built and extremely well thought out. We currently have the Ride 115X Max and the Ride 115 Max Angler in stock and we'll be getting more Rides in shortly.

And yes, the new 2015 Tarpons we got in all have the new hatches and foot braces as well. The classic kayak just got better.
