Tarpon series of kayaks have always been among the favorites amongst kayak anglers, a trusted classic. Wilderness Systems has reinvented the trusted Tarpon, and recently introduced the new Tarpon 130X.


Wilderness Systems’ Tarpon 130X is a Modern Spin on a Trusted Classic

 GREENVILLE, S.C. (July 14, 2015) — Wilderness Systems, the makers of high-performance kayaks for passionate anglers, recreational boaters and expedition paddlers, announced today the addition of the Tarpon 130X to its performance driven, sit-on-top (SOT) Tarpon family.


The new Tarpon 130X couples the original Tarpon’s sleek, speedy, and exceptionally stable performance attributes with modern shaping and a bevy of new customizable features. Wilderness Systems narrowed the hull and added sidewall flare to create a remarkably fast, nimble, yet stable ride. The result: a high-performance fishing kayak for experienced and recreational anglers alike.

“The Tarpon is one of the most popular and trusted boats in the lineup. We wanted to give this classic fishing kayak a modern overhaul,” said David Maughan, product designer for Wilderness Systems. “We used subtle design changes to make the aerodynamic hull even more stable as a fishing platform, while adding customizable features for electronics, accessory mounts, seat adjustments, and more.”


The Tarpon 130X includes the versatile Flex Pod OS, a drop-in, self-contained console that adds more storage, electronic, and propulsion opportunities. The ultra-comfortable AirPro MAX Lite seat, though not height adjustable, features a new slide-on-track system for increased fore/aft trimming while maintaining all of the comfort features found and loved in the AirPro MAX high/low seat.

The Tarpon 130X will be available for retail purchase spring 2016 in six color options: Desert Camo, Dusk, Flint, Mango, Midnight and Sonar.
