GREENVILLE, S.C. (August 1, 2016) – Wilderness Systems, the industry leader in kayak fishing innovation, today announced the highly anticipated release of its A.T.A.K. 120—an advanced tactical angling kayak that maintains the original 14-foot kayak’s award-winning features with a new, more compact 12-foot design.
“The A.T.A.K. 120 meets the demands of any angler who wants a smaller version of the original A.T.A.K. that took the kayak fishing world by storm,” said Evan Lyendecker, marketing director for Wilderness Systems. “Its innovative design offers maximum comfort and increased maneuverability with the same stability, wind shedding and walkable platform as its predecessor.”
The A.T.A.K. 120 features Wilderness Systems’ proprietary S.M.A.R.T. Hull Technology throughout the design that combines stability, maneuverability, acceleration, responsiveness and tracking for optimal performance in a range of environments. Design elements include an increased rocker profile to better negotiate moving water, a defined keel line for excellent tracking, and the unmistakable wind shedding low-profile of the A.T.A.K. 140.
The acclaimed, patented AirPro MAX seat returns with improved adjustability and the addition of quick-adjust cam levers, allowing users to adjust to their preferred trim for maximum comfort and performance. Mounting locations for the essential, patent-pending AirPro 3D seat are also included in the design. The exclusive Flex Pod OS system, combined with two additional hatches, provides the 120 ample storage space as well as the option for electronics or Helix MD™ Motor Drive integration. A secondary transducer scupper also has been added to allow more flexibility for electronics, including side-scanning.
SlideTrax™ and plenty of open mounting space provide the ability for unprecedented customization. The A.T.A.K. 120 offers three Power-Pole® locations—a Power-Pole can now be deployed from a tankwell scupper or from the recess located left and right side of the stern.
The A.T.A.K. 120 costs $1,649 USD and will be available in six colors—Desert Camo, Dusk, Mango, Midnight, Solar, and Sonar—in November 2016.
