Advanced Elements Advanced Frame Inflatable Kayak - The Advanced Frame is a combination of the best of folding frame kayaks and inflatable kayaks. The Advanced Frame kayak's bow slices through water like a knife and tracks just as well as any hard shell kayak. Built-in aluminum ribs help define the bow and stern and improve maneuverability greatly. The stern also acts as a skeg, further increasing the kayak's tracking performance. The Advanced Frame IK uses 3 layers of extremely durable materials to resist the chance of puncture. The heavy-duty 30-gauge PVC main chamber is protected by a high density polyurethane-coated polyester inner cover and a tough PVC Tarpaulin with 1000 Denier Polyester outer layer. A double layer of material on the bow and stern, and welded-on landing plates increase protection when beaching the kayak. There is plenty of on-board storage room for extended trips in this kayak as well. The breathable foam mesh back support of the padded seat sets you up for all day paddling comfort. The best part is that the Advanced Frame sets up in just a few minutes and is compact enough to take along on a weekend adventure. Keep it in the trunk of your car, and paddle whenever you want. Or pack it into a remote wilderness area and paddle where no one has paddled before. Simply inflate with a pump and hit the water in minutes. The included carry duffel bag makes storing and transporting easy. With the looks and paddle-ability of a rigid hard shell kayak with the portability of an inflatable, the Advanced Frame IK has it all!
