With a rigid bow and stern plus a multi-chamber inflatable hull, the AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak offers performance and portability for one or two paddlers.


Advanced Elements Advanced Frame Convertible Inflatable Kayak - The Advanced Frame Convertible kayak is uniquely designed to be paddled solo or tandem. It combines the best features of a folding frame kayak with those of an inflatable kayak. Built-in aluminum ribs help define the bow and stern, greatly improving maneuverability. The bow slices through water like a knife and tracks just as well as any hard shell kayak. The stern also acts as a skeg, further increasing the Convertible's tracking performance. The low center of gravity provides great stability and effortless paddling. Nine air chambers provide additional buoyancy and the three layers of rugged material increase the puncture resistance of the kayak.
