In 2016 at ICAST in Orlando Wilderness Systems presented their new kayak model named Radar. With technology advancement and kayak fishing industry boom it’s simply amazing how fast these fishing kayaks evolve. From simple sit on top kayaks we have serious fishing platforms today, real battleships to say at least. It’s amazing just to track this development, not to mention how great would be to try them all.
Radar from Wilderness Systems is just that, the latest technology product, incorporating first three-powered kayak with pedal, paddle and motor propulsion.
