Take on moderate whitewater, explore ocean shorelines or paddle the backcountry. The Innova Helios II EX tandem inflatable kayak goes the distance.

  • Suited to both flatwater and Class II whitewater, Helios II EX is easy to load on a plane and simple to pack into the backcountry
  • It's great for those who don't have the storage space for a traditional, rigid kayak; packed dimensions are 8 x 14 x 20 in.
  • Nitrylon, a rugged polyester/rubber laminate, on outer hull helps ensure lasting service with superb abrasion and puncture resistance
  • Nitrylon is constructed without PVC
  • Rigid I-beam floor construction provides good tracking; 3 main air chambers help ensure you'll stay afloat
  • Bow, center and stern spray decks offer refuge from chop and provide space for gear stored underneath
  • Elastic net rigging on bow and center decks and bungee rigging on stern deck stow extra gear
  • Backrests offer full support on both seats via the center and stern decks, making long excursions comfortable
  • Adjustable footrests fit any size paddler and enhance bracing in rough water; perimeter lines ease reentry
  • Asymmetrically located carry handles assist in portaging kayak to and from the water
  • Folds compactly into drybag-style, 70L backpack (included)
  • Tough, laminated Cordura® nylon backpack features adjustable, padded shoulder straps, roll-down drybag-style closure and external paddle pocket
  • Approximate inflation time with standard foot pump is 6 min.
