At 13 feet long with plenty of storage space, the Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite inflatable kayak provides performance that rivals a hard-shell kayak thanks to its hybrid design.

  • Features

    • 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 duffle bag with shoulder straps, repair kit, folding seat and hand pump with pressure gauge
