The deck is highly walkable and stable – a feature that was achieved without needing to add more width to the boat, allowing for sustained speed and glide. The deck is low-profile and intentionally designed to shed wind. Storage opportunities are abundant and are thoughtfully located throughout. Amongst the many new innovations that are overflowing on this boat, the ATAK will also feature the new AirPro MAX seat which becomes even more versatile with the ability to travel the majority of the length of the deck.
Evan Lyendecker, marketing manager with Wilderness Systems had this to say about the development of the ATAK: "We’re currently sitting with a phase 3 prototype, which is shaping up quite nicely, and have tested it in various fisheries from the Susquehanna River in PA and the tidal Potomac in MD/VA, to the marshes and bays around Charleston, SC and Port Aransas, TX, and various lakes in between. We’ll also be headed south this winter to chase some reds and specks in the Apalachicola National Forest and around the Forgotten Coast of FL. If the testing schedule is any indication, this kayak will be highly adaptive to almost any environment and target species."
