What makes this a Super Hero? For Medium to Large boaters to paddle rivers upright and in control, drop through their favorite creeks, surf those hard to catch waves, or handle big water on the surface

What do you get with the Super Hero? Speed, strength, lasting power, comfort, stability, ease of rolling, and great looks are just the start.



Run anything, pack some gear, and enjoy the confidence this river running/creek boat offers. While the Fun is your best combination of river running/play this boat is your best combination of river running/creeking. Designed to handle the largest diversity of water possible it will not let you down anywhere you decide to go. Low draft, long lines means it handles shallow water without bottoming out and stays fast. Volume is designed to keep you on the surface and upright in big water or at the bottom of drops. This boat has no match in speed at 8’ in length either, so whether you are doing a big ferry, a long flat-water paddle out of your favorite river or trying to beat your paddling buddy to the takeout, you’ll have an ace in the hole!

Love the Super Hero

I grew up on the river rafting and inflatable kayaking, this is my second year in a hardshell.

I spent two weeks paddling different demos from top manufacturers. Dagger's Mamba, Wavesport's Diesel, Pyranha's Burn and I found Jackson's Super Hero to be the best.

Rolling, stability, speed, comfort and pure enjoyment of the sport with the Super Hero.

Easy to adjust system allowed me and my smaller paddling buddy to both demo the boat without the hassle and time moving everything around. I purchased one about a month ago and it still puts a huge smile on my face when I see it. The plastic used is of a different breed. My first Jackson boat and I'm convinced Jackson kayaks are the future of the sport. I don't think I'll buy anything else.

Jackson SuperHero

40 y/o Class 3 Paddler looking to improve to Class 4

Elkhorn Creek and Pool Session

Very Fast, Responsive, Comfortable, Outfitting simple but effective, Durable, Easy to roll.

Had a H3 255 prior to this boat. H3 was stable but I found it difficult to roll by comparison. The Super Hero is also incredibly faster. With its unique shape it punches through waves and holes without slowing down or losing its line. The plastic has a great finish and durable qualities yet the boat is 6 to 7 pounds lighter than my previous riverrunner. Try it out, you'll like it!
