Ocean Kayak recently unveiled an entirely revamped Trident Series, which began shipping November 1, 2016. We’re excited to give our customers an in-depth look at the improvements that will no doubt make the kayak fishing experience even better.
"Our goal with the Ocean Kayak Trident revamp was to make the best even better," said David Hadden, Brand Director - Watercraft, Johnson Outdoors. "The hull is still the same legendary Trident hull, but we've added numerous deck features that provide a better on-water experience from bow to stern."
The all-new Active Comfort System 2.0 (ACS2) seating is the perfect blend of aesthetics, comfort and performance. Featuring easy and intuitive adjustments, under-leg support, premium padding and flow-through ventilation, the ACS2 is the most advanced seating system on the market.
- Ergonomically-designed backrest adjusts vertically for custom support
- Adjustable seat surface has a revolutionary thumb lever that lets you raise and lower it to the desired positon
- Quick-dry mesh fabric and contoured padding for all-day comfort
New Mod Pod Design
The new Mod Pod II design is slightly narrower for increased thigh room and to allow easier stand-up fishing. The folding Mod Pod hatch comes standard with two trays that accommodate the footprint of Plano 3600 tackle boxes and also slides fore and aft for access to the inside boat hull. Also includes a cup holder and locking dry storage to protect smartphone, wallet, charger, tools, etc. - and is magnetized to hold clippers, pliers, knives, fishing lures, and other metal fishing utility tools.
A total of seven flush aluminum track mounts allow quick rigging of accessories like rod holders, electronics, and POV camera mounts. There is one track mount toward the bow, two mid-ship, two toward the stern, and two built-in the Mod Pod. Mounting plates on both the Mod Pod and boat allow easy rigging of fish-finders and tidy transducer/power cable routing.
Maximum Storage & Cool Stuff
The bow hatch still provides access to a massive storage area and the included 12-volt battery bag for fish-finder and accessory power. The bow also features a redesigned paddle-keeper for quick paddle-stashing when fighting a fish; also includes rod tip protectors. New Trident models also feature the addition of a rear hatch for increased gear storage.
All new Trident models also feature adjustable foot braces and are rudder-ready with purchase of a separate rudder kit. New Trident models also feature hard, rubber-molded carry handles that resist snagging.
