WILDERNESS SYSTEMS Tempest 170 Touring Kayak

Signature expedition kayak performance

Intentionally designed for all paddlers to enhance their sea kayaking skills, the award-winning Tempest series offers unparalleled performance. The industry-leading comfort of the Phase 3® AirPro seating system, combined with an unmatched capacity, enables you to travel farther and achieve more. The TruTrak adjustable skeg system seamlessly transitions from straight tracking to supreme maneuverability.

Phase 3® AirPro XP seat system

The most comfortable kayak seat out there. Fully adjustable and designed with mesh fabric covers and honeycomb-vented, ergonomic 3D foam, this seat provides optimal airflow to keep you cool while supporting your lower back.

Adjustable padded thigh braces

Padded thigh braces provide comfortable support and optimal boat control.

Slidelock XL foot brace system

With the Slidelock foot brace, adjusting the foot positioning is effortless. It is designed to put the positioning at your fingertips via an extension rod, so you do not have to reach down into the hull searching for the hidden trigger. The Slidelock is created to provide a secure position for your foot and resist any "pop out" movements.

Bow, midship & stern push-on hatches

Multiple hatch locations with bulkheads give you access to plenty of storage and help keep your gear safe and dry.

TruTak adjustable skeg

The TruTrak skeg, along with cockpit control deployment, helps you stay on course in strong crosswinds and currents, ensuring maximum efficiency and control.
