"I'm looking at both of the rides too. The Coosa also looks pretty cool. I'm thinking I'll probably go with the 135 because it's a litter big bigger :)  Aaron"

The 2012 Ride 115 Teaser Video

"chad- I have really been trying to study the pros and cons between the 2012 Ride 115 and the Ride 135.  Is there an obvious reason that I would want a 135 over a 115?  Is it a lot faster?  As for stability, it seems the 115 is a bit…"

In-Depth Review (with pics) of the 2012 Wilderness Systems Ride 135

Great early review of the all-new 2012 Wilderness Systems Ride 135 by Palmetto Kayak Fishing.

 

Excerpt:

The seating system coupled with the floor layout is genius.  In other kayaks I have owned, I run into a common problem - there never seems to be enough leg room for me from the seat to the foot pegs.  I have historically had to modify the design of the foot pegs to make my legs more comfortable, but the Ride’s configuration worked perfectly right out of the…

Hahaha Thats funny. Thanks for the giggle. My other half was JUST eyeing up tandoms on your site last night and I said it looks fun but lets wait until we are both older and used to our solo paddling. He was wondering what the main differences between the Tsunami and the Tsunami Pros were and I said the material they are made of. Any other big differences? And I didnt see the 140 listed. Do you still make them? Happy paddling!
