Everything you’ve always loved about the Zen, made even better! Whether you’re just learning to stay upright, running a beautiful river with your friends, or looking for your next creek boat, the Zen 3.0 will give you the confidence to enjoy your adventure.
Due to an increased rocker profile, the Zen 3.0 stays on top of the water like never before. It’s a dry, confidence-inspiring bow with plenty of volume to help keep you in control in crashing waves or steeper rapids. Increased rocker and slightly shorter length also makes it easy to turn and keep online, even when skipping out across backwash or dealing with cross-currents.
This hull is a great combination of zippy, fast, surfing fun with more stability and forgiveness than ever you’ve ever imagined. This boat will keep you upright like no other, but is still easy to carve around and put it on edge when you want to. The Zen 3.0 is also higher floating, with increased leg room.
From the mellowest floats, to the hardest whitewater on earth, the Zen 3.0 is going to be your new favorite river creek boat!
High & Dry Bow // The Zen 3.0 stays on top of the water and the bow lifts over and clears things better than any previous design. It is a dry ride and very confidence inspiring, especially when the river gets steep and keeping your bow up is important.
Upgraded Forged Aluminum Alloy Handles // New for 2020, the Zen’s upgraded forged aluminum alloy handles add a stylish finish, updated look and security.
Upgraded Forged Aluminum Alloy Safety Bar // The Zen’s safety bar has gotten an upgrade for 2020 as well, made from a stronger forged aluminum alloy.
Stable, Confidence-Inspiring Hull // The hull combines an amazingly fun Zen feel, with carving, gliding, and surfing, while adding a new level of stability to the platform. The ease of staying right side up is incredible, while the confidence it provides is welcome on any river.
Upgraded Whitewater Outfitting // New for 2020, the Zen’s outfitting gets an updated look with the Jackson Kayak logo and funky swirls.
Big Volume for Big Water & Steep Creeks // The high volume design doesn’t get grabbed in squirrelly situations, and it wants to stay horizontal. This is an amazing platform for teaching beginners, while the biggest whitewater begs for this type of forgiveness.
