Zen 2015

zen top view The Zen takes River-running to a higher level:

The beginner will gain confidence immediately as the stability of the Zen along with its supreme JK comfort and the ease of rolling will shorten the learning curve. With 3 sizes (small, medium and large) Jackson Kayak provides this kayak to any sized boater, making it the ideal kayak for schools, clubs and families.

Advanced boaters are going to look to the Zen as well for a big water / sporty river-running boat of choice. From classic river-runs like Cherry Creek, Gore Canyon and Gauley to the creeks from California to Carolina, Team JK has been loving the Zen for high-speed, high control performance with a slick planing hull make the most of every feature along the way.

New for 2014 is the ‘all-black’ interior and extra-welded, fiber-reinforced hull stiffening track for a stiffer, longer lasting ride.
