With an extremely stiff design, the Pakboat XT-15 Solo folding kayak performs with the feel of your favorite hardshell kayak, but it packs down to a fraction of the size.
The XT model features I-beams on either side, dramatically improving stiffness and boat responsiveness
Simple assembly takes approximately 30 min.; Pakboat XT stores in a 34 x 15 x 14 in. bag, included
Rugged, abrasion-resistant PVC-coated synthetic fabric skin fits tightly over frame, creating clean lines and smooth paddling
Anodized aluminum frame is strong, lightweight and corrosion resistant; longer sections of frame are shockcorded like tent poles to ease assembly
3 longitudinal components—2 I-beams and a hinged keel—attach to cross members inside skin to create a taut, easy-to-assemble craft that anyone can put together
Inflatable tubes with 6 separate compartments between frame and skin increase tautness, ensure flotation and eliminate pressure points
Sling seat suspends your weight above the floor of the boat, and an integrated backband offers excellent lower-back support
Optional self-inflating hip pads and inflatable thigh supports dial in fit; includes attachment points for thigh straps (thigh straps sold separately, hip pads not included)
Removable deck effectively seals out water; simply hook over the ends of the hull and attach with a rip-and-stick seal
Includes pump, repair kit and storage bag
