Greenville, S.C. – Wilderness Systems unveils the Ride 115X, an unparalleled angling kayak package, available at retailers starting September 2013. The Ride 115X features the same stability, maneuverability and capacity anglers have come to know and love in the Ride 115, with a “wish list” of design features and accessory upgrades just for fishing.

Working closely with well-known kayak angler, Chad Hoover, and other members of its Pro Staff, Wilderness Systems took all the best qualities of the extremely popular Ride 115 and added highly customizable features to make it the ideal fishing kayak.

New features of the Ride 115X include a removable console that reveals a large pass through the hull, including a battery storage area. Eight inches of SlideTrax along the stern tankwell and under the removable console, and the increased bulkhead width, provide more flexibility for mounting accessories. Security bars on the stern provide excellent options for securing gear with web straps or carabiners, and a stand up assist strap eases the transition from a seated to standing position.

Add the Phase 3® AirPro, the most innovative and comfortable seating system on the market (available in standard, Advance or Advance Angler options), and you have the perfect yak angling machine. The Ride 115X Advance and Advance Angler come with the Phase 3 AirPro Advance seat, an elevated seat with 4” of height for better visibility.
