Phase 3 Air Pro
The Wilderness Systems patented Phase 3 seating system has become the industry leader when it comes to an amazingly comfortable seat. And now it's even better.Introducing the new Phase 3 AirPro designed with innovative features that add comfort and easy adjustability.
Ergonomic elements have been added to all aspects of the AirPro. The contoured seat and seat backs have been designed with increased comfort in mind. Multiple-sized holes in the special foam padding produce varying densities to provide extra cushioning along the spine and under the legs while comfortably supporting the sit bones. The flexible back rest features a cutaway for spinal support and a more rounded design to conform to your back; the seat's leg lifter area has a softer edge and is more contoured to your thighs. The Air Pro also features carefully selected material over the perforated foam, greatly improving ventilation so you and your seat breathe and dry out quickly.
Attention to ergonomic details are also evident in the easily accessible controls that have been carefully positioned to prevent strain as you reach to adjust the system. Simple, highly visible icons easily identify the adjustment points and their functions. A re-designed leg lifter has now become the central control for adjusting both the seatback and leg lifter height. The leg lifter uses a pulley style system to make it easier to adjust. The easy-to-use pull strap allows you to lower the seat, and causes less friction on the bungee cord--preventing wear and tear on both you and the cord. Located in front of the central controls is a mesh bag that can be used for storing the leg lifter handle, a water bottle or other items that you would like to quickly reach.
Other new improvements include a new pad system that stays where you put it. No more string to tie on the back seat, the system is now built with nylon cord that won't stretch—it stays where you put it! And no more plastic pine trees on the seat pad to cause pressure points during long paddles.
Now, all of our boats* will come standard with the NEW Phase 3 Air Pro seating system.
Each of our boats is outfitted with a Phase 3 Air Pro system designed specifically with the boat and its paddler in mind, offering a unique, comfortable ride. So whether you want a boat for touring, recreation, or even fishing, your Wilderness Systems kayak will be outfitted for you.
