Size, Weight, Capacity

The Jackson Antix 2.0 is available in small, medium or large sizes.

The small version is 7’7” (231 cm) long and 25” (63.5 cm) wide. It weighs 34 lbs (15 kg) and has an optimum paddler weight of 95 – 160 lbs (43 – 72 kg).

The medium is 8’ (244 cm) long and 26.25” (67 cm) wide. It weighs 38 lbs (17 kg) and has an optimum paddler weight of 130 – 190 lbs (59 – 86 kg).

The large is 8’5” (256.5 cm) long, 28” (71cm) wide and weighs 42lbs (19kg). The optimum paddler weight for this size is 165 – 230lbs (75 – 104kg). 

Features

The Antix 2.0 is a whitewater kayak designed to be at the cutting edge of the sport. A progression on the original Antix, the 2.0 has an even more aggressive bow rocker to charge through waves and skip over holes on steep creeks. The stern rocker, meanwhile, has been reduced and the entire length of the hull has been made planing rather than the mixed planing/displacement of the first model. These changes give the new model increased speed to pull big aerial moves either upstream or downstream as well as giving it the momentum to get away from holes!

Jackson are renowned for making some of the best outfitting on the market, essential in a kayak which you want to throw around and make tight, technical moves in. The fully adjustable, extremely comfortable seat, hip pads and thigh braces give you optimal control in any conditions. The backband is secured by Jackson’s sure-lock system using cleats on the inside of the cockpit. This system differs from traditional ratchets and limits the possibility of over-tightening which can lead to cramp and poor power transfer.

A bulkhead style foot brace allows you to drive the kayak around the river and keeps you upright in the boat.

Safety grab handles are fitted around the top deck of the Antix 2.0 and a bung is at the very rear to drain out any water you may take on.

There are also GoPro mounts, because if it’s not on film, did it really happen?

Performance

The Antix 2.0 came about after three years of Jackson paddlers playing in the original model and giving their feedback.

It’s quicker and more playful than the old design, it surfs glassy waves effortlessly and is light enough to get aerial and pull some big wave wheels in. The Antix 2.0 does seem quite wide for the length and edge transfer may take some getting used to for people, but the extra width at the rear makes it really stable when you tail squirt, something this boat is particularly good at!

If you want to be reminded why you love paddling, the Antix 2.0 will get you kayaking with a smile.
