The Original Ride Just Got Better

I've had the Ride 135 Max for almost 4 months now and have to say this kayak kicks butt! It's super comfortable, I fish in mine for over 10 hours without issue. No more numb legs and butt!

My buddy had a Ride 135 with the Air Pro Phase 3 seat, it was comfortable but didn't have the option to go into different height positions. The Max seat does and is extremely easy to move up and down (once you get used to it). I never understood why Wilderness came out with the Air Pro Phase 3 seat a year or so before launching the Max seat. The Max seat is far superior.

The kayak has a smart layout with tracks where you need them. The hatches seal very well.

My only gripes are the kayak is heavy. It feels like they made the kayak walls an inch thick but I guess that means the durability will be off the chain! It also isn't the fastest paddling kayak. Sometimes I feel like I'm paddling a barge.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Stable, Comfortable, Fishing Machine
Cons:
Heavy, Not a lot of glide when paddling
