Wilderness Systems Ride 115X Sets a New Standard in Kayak Angling
New Customizable Angler Packages Make Kayak Angling Even EasierWilderness Systems unveils the Ride 115X, an unparalleled angling kayak package for 2014. The Ride 115X features the same stability, manoeuvrability 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.
