Fifteen feet of sleek, streamlined plastic at your beck and call, and your boss actually expects you to hone in on line 138458 of the world's most boring spreadsheet--ever. You could stay and struggle through line after line of sheer torture, or you could slip out during lunch, pop the Wilderness Systems Focus 150 Ruddered Kayak on top of your car, and drive to the nearest body of water. The Focus' plastic hull sensuously molds into a shallow V keel and then seamlessly slips into rounded chines--that's the kind of shape that provides magical maeuvering and gets your heart a-thumping whether you're hitting a quick 30-minute arm-burner or paddling into the wind to reach a previously undiscovered island on the lake. Curves turn the Focus 150 into a screaming speed machine when you put power in your paddling. If straight lines make you hot to trot, drop the BTS rudder and find a fan--and fast. The cockpit bears the same dimensions as the Focus 145, but an extra six inches of boating heaven gives your lithe limbs a little extra stretching space. Adjustable hip pads and padded thigh braces redefine pleasure paddling. Bow and stern hatches serve several purposes: their volume buoys the boat, they safely store dry bags full of adventure-bound gear, and they minimize the amount of water that enters your boat. The deck rigging design puts your rain shell at your fingertips when the forecast for sun seems to be mistaken and lets you store an extra (2-piece) paddle and pump behind you.
A 15 ft. touring kayak for paddlers ready to take their skills to the next level, the Wilderness Systems Focus(TM) 150 Kayak with Rudder blends stability with efficiency. 15 ft. length strikes a balance between the shorter and longer versions of the Focus; weight capacity with paddler and gear is 325 lbs. Performance-inspired stern and bow result in a longer water line for excellent speed and glide, and shallow-V hull with rounded chine is easy to paddle in varying water types. Adjustable, padded thigh braces and hip pads, and a Phase 3(R) AirPro XP seating system and backband, make the Focus comfortable for long paddling excursions. Hull is crafted in high-density polyethylene for amazing durability and easy care. Foot-pedal-controlled rudder system with cockpit deployment controls helps you steer and track effectively. Easily accessible front hatch and a smaller stern hatch offers ample storage space for dry bags and extra gear. Stern hatch, bow hatch and small midship day hatch all have bulkheads to keep gear dry and secure. Domed hatch covers offer a rugged watertight seal and tabs for easy removal. 50 lb. weight.
