Can’t make up your mind whether you want a kayak that is paddle, petal or motor driven? Well, with the Radar 115 from Wilderness Systems you can have all three. Along with the slightly bigger Radar 135, it is one of the first kayaks on the market that is tri-powered, which means you can switch between these three means of propulsion without having to buy a new kayak. It supports the HELIX PD pedal drive as well as the Helix motor drive, both of which can be fitted to the Radar 115 without having to make any further modification. The Radar 115 also uses the Wilderness Systems S.M.A.R.T hull, which stands for Stability, Maneuverability, Acceleration, Responsiveness and Tracking. What this means is that it is going to give you great performance no matter what type of water conditions you encounter.
Despite being shorter than the Radar 135 this kayak packs the same great features, which means an Orbix Bow hatch, flat mounting surface so you can mount more custom accessories, the large, padded Keepers XL footbraces that are easy to adjust and the Front SlideTrax accessory system for your accessories. The Flex POD OS Console System allows for easy installation of your fish finder electronics if you are not using a motor drive, or you can use the Flex Pod PD for a pedal drive system or electronics. For storage you have a rectangular center hatch that is not only watertight, but also flesh with the deck so you can easily stand on it while you are casting and fishing.
The Radar 115 also has an AirPro MAX seat, which is one of the most comfortable in the industry and offers multiple seating positions. Behind the seat you’ll also find ample space for your tackle boxes, crates or livewells thanks to the tankwell. Rigid carry handles on the front and rear of this kayak makes it easy to transport and it also features a stern mounting plate location for those who want to add aftermarket accessories.
The Radar 115 is a great choice if you want the versatility of choosing what type of propulsion you want depending on when or where you are using the kayak. It also packs a range of great features that are all designed to make your kayak angling experience more enjoyable.
