So of course I caught wind of this the day it came out to press but I wanted to let anyone interested in buying a new Stealth 14 to hold off til fall... I wanted to let you know about the new X-Seat...

It looks pretty awesome and seems to be a great upgrade to an already amazing platform.. Can't wait until I can get the new 2017 Stealth 14!!!

A little info from Malibu:

Malibu Kayaks X-Seat

Announcing 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, with the versatility Malibu Kayaks is known for.

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 interlocking design allows the user safety and stability when on the water, while still being able to remove the seat in seconds, for use as a beach or camp chair.

Our designers spent over 2 years developing an ergonomic design featuring lumbar support and a high back frame, and the open sliding allows for maximum comfort and maneuverability while paddling.  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.  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.

Due to required mold modifications, the X-Seat will only be available on the new 2017 models.
