Wilderness Systems Zephyr 160 Touring Sea Kayak with TruTrak Skeg - The Wilderness Systems Zephyr 160 sea kayak was designed to be a playful, friendly kayak that excels in rough sea conditions, rock gardens, or surf and wind. This award-winning design is extremely playful and balanced, giving you a fun combination of maneuverability and sea worthy tracking. The Zephyr 160 offers a slightly wider hull with more rocker and a pronounced bow, making it a sporty touring kayak. The beam and flare of the moderately soft-chined hull gives the Zephyr outstanding stability on edge and carves very aggressive turns. When it’s time to cover some distance, the TruTrak skeg keeps the Zephyr 160 moving straight and tracking true. The hydrofoil shape cuts efficiently through water, and retracts into a water-tight housing when not in use.With the Phase 3XP's ultra comfortable, multi-adjustable seating with a leg lifter, touring backband, and seat pads that contour to your body shape, you're assured a comfortable ride. The sporty Wilderness Systems Zephyr 160 sea kayak offers balanced performance, making it the ultimate day or weekend exploring kayak.

Note: Each multicolor boat is unique, and color patterns vary boat to boat.

Don't forget a spray skirt and cockpit cover! A skirt is important for keeping water out of the boat and the cockpit cover helps keep out rain, dust, and things that crawl! A size 1.7 Deck Seals skirt and cockpit cover fits the Wilderness Systems Zephyr 160 sea kayak.

    Shopping Info

    Great performance in a Brit style hull. Fast and sleet, plays in the surf great, yet room for lots of gear. The internal skeg box does inhibit the storage of longer items in the rear hatch but still plenty of room. And did I mention how playful this kayak is?!?! Love it! I'd give it more stars if you'd let me!

    Finding boats that fit me is a bit of job, given that I am 6'3" and 250 lbs. Cockpits are often too tight or leg room is too short. That's what first drew me to the Zephyr 160 - I actually fit in it fairly comfortably. I could use another half inch in the foot pegs but it's close enough. The seat and the thigh braces are fine and there seems to be plenty of room for my size 11 feet. I like the outfitting...the elastic bungies are carried up the front deck quite a distance, which works for me as I use a Greenland style paddle with a very low stroke and I like to have the front deck completely clear in my paddling box. That means anything on the front deck needs to be way up front. The whole boat seems to work very well with my low angle stroke...the front deck is not too high and there is nothing to catch my fingers on as I paddle. The skeg control is recessed out of the way. Paddling the boat is a blast! It has amazing stability but turns very easily with only a bit of edging. I have had it out in some pretty brisk conditions now and have never needed the skeg. It's nice to have it for when I'm working the camera though. It seems to track a bit better than my Sirocco yet is easier to turn too. A bit of a paradox...I don't know how they did it. Rolling the boat is very easy, with the low back deck and the secure thigh braces. I haven't done a lot of rolling with it, due to a back problem I'm dealing with right now, but the few times I have I have been very favorably impressed.



    After what seemed like endless test paddles I finally purchased a Zephyr 160 in the spring of 09... And I could not be more pleased with the boat!!! As a retired WW paddler of 20 years (shoulder injury/surgery) I like rougher conditions... And the Zephyr fits the bill perfectly. I paddle an average of 3 days a week on the Chesapeake Bay; at times in 4 foot swells and breaking waves and it handles great. This boat loves rough water. At 16 ft and lots of rocker it is very nimble with only slight edging. It also responds almost instinctively to light corrective sweeps/strokes. I also agree with the previous poster who stated despite being so nimble it is also quite stable, yet also tracks very well.... Even in rough water I have yet to drop the skeg. The Zephyr rolls very easily as well and is moderately fast. I've paddled faster boats but have no trouble keeping up with composite boats in the groups I paddle with.



    I've had my Zephyr for a couple months now. Paddles great, very comfortable cockpit. There's not a lot of 16' kayaks out there that will fit larger paddlers. This was the best of the choices in my opinion.
