Malibu Kayaks X Seat

The designers at Malibu Kayaks have spent over 2 years developing an ergonomic seating design featuring lumbar support, high back frame, and a high/low seating postion to allow for maximum comfort and maneuverability while paddling. Kayak Fishing Supplies has been at the factory throughout the whole process providing input and feedback on the design to ensure that the finished product is a hit. With that said, Malibu Kayaks has just announced the all new, innovative seating system, the X-Seat! With upwards of 4 positions and full adjustability, this stadium style high/low seat combines all the top-quality features kayak anglers expect. The Malibu Kayaks X Seat is very comfortable and affords lots of versatility for a wide range of fishing situations especially becuase of the stability in the Stealth 14.

The X-Seat transitions easily into over 4 different positions, providing up to an additional 24 inches in height.  Both the bottom and back rest provide a full range of motion, and can be folded up completely, allowing standing room and access to the included casting post. The casting post will act as a leaning post in the fully expanded postion to help with balance while standing and fishing or paddling.

The interlocking design allows the user safety and stability when on the water, while still being able to remove the seat in seconds; for transporting and use as a beach or camp chair.  The frame is made of high-grade aluminum, making the seat not only durable, but lightweight. An anodized finish increases the oxide layer on the metal, further maximizing the frame’s resistance to any corrosion or wear. The X Seat comes with a new push and click back rest adjustment mechanism which eliminates the need for side straps making for more room for side stradle style fishing and an easier entry and exit from the kayak. Coupled with a UV resistant, moisture wicking, and breathable 3-D mesh fabric, the X-Seat has already been heralded by experts as one of the finest on the market.

Kayak Fishing Supplies will be one of the first dealers to have the New X Seat available for sale in the modified/upgraded Stealth 14 hull later on this year.  Due to required mold modifications, the X-Seat will only be available on the new 2017 models.
