We’ve seen a few little bits and bobs on the new Jackson Kayak over the last week or so. Well here it is.
The Antix 2.0 is the name given to this new kayak.
Here is what the team at Jackson Kayak have to say.
ANTIX 2.0 #UNLOCKtheRIVER
“If you were heading to a new river, with no beta on what to expect and you were given the choice of only one boat to take; you would take the Antix 2.0. After three years paddling the original Antix we were all reminded of how much FUN whitewater is!
With the masterful reshaping of a full planing hull, we have made the Antix substantially faster, made it surf like no other, stay on the surface, and made it squirt with less effort than ever. It runs rivers well, it runs creeks well and it’s the best for play in its class, bar none! It’s the one boat that rules them all for all day fun on the water.
The Antix brings play, river running and creaking together into a one-boat-fits-all package. We’ve taken the best selling kayak in its class and added more speed, comfort, ease and play to give you the Antix 2.0″
“The new Antix takes what I loved with the first edition, but improved on all the bases I could have asked for. From easier squirting to higher speed, better surfing and more confidence downriver, it’s the boat that’s gonna allow me to unlock the full potential of every run.” ~ Dane Jackson
The Antix 2.0 is available in three different sizes.
All three sizes have an increase in volume, width and length compared to the Antix 1.0. It looks like the outfitting has received an update of some sort. Grab handles have also moved position which makes sense given its #unlocktheriver status.
This is not a tweaked version of the original, more a new kayak with a similar name.
