  • A hybrid of a folding frame kayak and an inflatable, the design combines an aluminum rib frame, rigid panels and inflation chambers for advanced performance
  • Made with a durable, double-coated ripstop fabric and welded seams
  • Multilayer construction features a kayak outer cover and main air chamber encased in its own tube cover
  • Unlike many inflatable kayaks, Advanced Elements kayaks are developed with multiple layers of material for maximum durability
  • Main inflation chamber is divided into 2 separate air chambers that encompass the entire kayak; this provides optimum safety when out on the water
  • Drop-stitch floor construction with a high-density drop-stitch core provides rigidity and creates a hull with chine
  • PVC tarpaulin hull material features a polyester fabric sandwiched by layers of vinyl, which creates a durable and strong outer cover
  • Aluminum rib frame technology in the bow and stern for a reinforced hard edge
  • Large storage compartment and bungee deck lacing provide plenty of space to store your gear
  • Adjustable seat with inflatable lumbar support
  • Inflatable coaming for spray skirt attachment (spray skirt not included)
  • Advanced Elements spring valve
  • Rubber molded handles
  • Neoprene paddle guard
  • D-ring tie-down
  • Tracking fin
  • Rudder mount for adding the AdvancedTrak™ Kayak Rudder Kit AE4005 (not included)
  • Includes a duffel bag with shoulder straps, repair kit, folding seat and hand pump with pressure gauge
