Wilderness Systems Overview - The Radar

Kayak Make & Model

Brand:
Wilderness Systems
Model:
Radar
MSRP ($):
1,499.00
Length (ft):
13.5

The 135 is part of the Radar series by Wilderness Systems, which is kayaks with paddle, power and pedal capabilities. The Radar 135 is basically an upgrade of the popular Ride 135 and for the hull uses the same Stability, Maneuverability, Acceleration, Responsiveness and Tracking Technology or S.M.A.R.T. as the Attack series. It is a kayak that is designed to give you great performance in different types of water environments and it is also very versatile in terms of what you can equip it with.

The Radar 135 is actually one of the first kayaks on the market with support for paddling, pedaling as well as a motor drive. It features the new plastic grip style handle at the front with a paddle grip bungee behind it as well as an Orbix bow hatch. The low profile of this kayak means it can easily cut through the wind, but if you prefer a motor instead of paddling or pedaling you can remove the flex pod and install a Helix motor drive. Just behind it is the Flex Pod PD that can be used for your electronics, such as a fishfinder or transducer. This one is also removable and can be replaced with a Helix pedal drive.

The middle of this kayak features a nice rectangular hatch with ample storage capacity. The lid is very sturdy due to the fact that the kayak can also be used as a standing platform while fishing. The AirPro MAX seat is also featured in this kayak, offering multiple seating positions and cam levers that make speed mounting and dismounting easier. The Radar 135 has a large tankwell, with adjustable bungee, in the rear and it has plenty of space for tackle boxes, livewells, crates or whatever else you want to haul with you. In the rear you will also find another rigid carry handle as well as the stern mounting plate location. Overall the Radar 135 is a great kayak if you don’t want to be stuck with just a pedal or paddle drive, but prefer to have the option to switch to whatever you like, including a motor drive.
