Jackson Kayak Zen 2016

What happens when you morph the best of the Karma creek boat with the Best of the original Zen river runner? You get an amazing river running and creeking kayak in the 2016 Zen. This boat runs dry with ample bow rocker, rolls like a dream with flared sidewalls and the other special JK ingredients that make up a great rolling boat. It has a super fast hull that seems to float over the water and be impervious to boils, and other currents that try to take you off line, while sits nice and stable on the water making it a teacher’s dream boat for students learning to paddle.

2016 Zen

The 2016 Zen bridges the gap between river runner and creek boat and offers a new tier in speed and performance. The sidewalls are higher than the previous model giving it much improved stability. The added volume and bow rocker keep you higher on the surface. The Zen has held onto its fast, light maneuverability but now allows you to fly up and over rocks, holes and waves better than ever. Whether you are looking for a forgiving, easy to roll all around kayak while just getting started or wanting a sporty river runner that surfs as well as it creeks, the 2016 Zen is for you. This  hull design will make the Zen a forgiving kayak for those rolling, bracing and running whitewater for the first time. Making it not only an awesome instructional kayak but a top creek racer as well. The end result will be a Zen that is fast, stable and more versatile than ever on rivers and creeks.
