Best boat ever! From Oh-be-joyful to 13 day self support Grand Trip. Guided duckie trips on the Taylor river last year with the Hero. I love the cut out hand holds, easy to grab went they are swimming. I weigh 140 lbs. 5'7" Planning hull is fun surfing, yet super forgiving. Git you one.
The Jackson Kayak Hero and Super Hero provide river running paddlers a quick and agile boat for running creeks and low volume rivers. This boat is ideal for beginners, with its ability to roll easily and its stable platform, and experts will love it because of its boofing ability and the uni-shock bulkhead. The result is a boat that you can learn in and and hold on to for the day you get after some class 4-5.
Jackson Hero and Super Hero Features:
The Hero and Super Hero were created to make river running and creeking easier and more fun than ever before.
The Hero is a uber-stable, sporty, quick, easy to drive, simple to roll, and instantly boofable kayak
A very short package that is surprisingly fast, nimble, and just plain easy to paddle is the result of a very well thought out hull package for starters.
It is as wide and flat as possible, while still allowing the paddler full edge control both on the water and on rocks.
The refined drop chines allow for snappy eddy turns and incredibly easy to control ferries and surfing.
The rocker profile improves all the 'pro's of the last generation Hero AND provides an effortless boof designed for shallow landings or crossing sticky holes.
Specific improvements over the last version are: Faster, better boofing, easier to control, better surfing, greatly improved creeking ability, lighter weight
Outfitted with the “Uni-Shock Bulkhead” system and “Boat Armor Outfitting”
Built-in GoPro mount
