Reviews & Questions

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my kayak Bought this Kayak end of season. Have been out four times now. Love this particular kayak for its lighter weight and slightly shorter length. I can easily maneuver it inside my RAV 4. It tracks well and is very stable. I don't find that it's tippy at all. The only thing I wish were on it is a small waterproof compartment for car keys etc. I did buy a small waterproof bag to attach to the bungee and it fits in the net under the hull. Can't wait till next spring to start using it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to carry, comfortable kayak This boat is designed really well to be manageable and maneuverable in the water for one person. I had been looking for a kayak the I could load and carry without assistance and this fits the bill perfectly. The seat is very comfortable and adjustable foot braces are great for getting a little extra help from the legs. I am very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super kayak in lakes and rivers I have been out 35 times so far this season in rivers, ponds, small and large lakes, choppy water as well! And it handles beautifully. Light enough for on top and short enough to nicely fit in my Honda CR-V.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Athena 100X excellent kayak Great kayak for women. Is light weight and very easy to carry. I choose the purple and orange kayak. I have used this kayak one time, which was my first and found it very easy to maneuver. It seemed the stability was a little tippy, but I have only used it once.

Hi. I would really like to buy an Athena kayak this year. I live in Minneapolis and can’t find any retailers that have them in stock. Will this model be available in my area in 2021? If so, do you have any idea when I can expect to find one? Thanks!

Asked by: LizC
We do not have visibility on our dealers inventory, however we are still making this model. Dealers are receiving their 2021 orders already

The parts list says it's a 1/2 inch plug. The product number is PS1275. You can find the Parts List and Owner's Manual for your kayak by going under Documentation on the product's webpage.

The Athena and the Trailblazer seem nearly identical. Are there features on the Athena (besides the awesome Purple Haze color) that accounts for the price difference?

Asked by: Wowsporthorse
I have neither of these kayaks but I did an excessive amount of research before picking my Mustang 100x. The Athena has more features and less downsides than the Trailblazer. The biggest downside of the Trailblazer is that the tank well isn't bordered off from the cockpit, so if it fills with water, it will immediately run down your back and into your cockpit. It's probably nothing to worry about unless you plan on taking it to choppy waters or beaching it at an angle, though.

I am in Osoyoos, BC there a retailer that carries the Athena 100XP near by? (or by mail order) I am 5' 3" female and reviews of this kayak sound perfect for me

Asked by: KC
Pelican is currently still producing kayaks, but you would need to be in contact with your local dealers to know when product will be back on shelves. We do not have visibility over stores inventory.
