Here's what other sites are saying:
The Advanced Elements AirFusion(TM) Elite kayak performs comparably to a skin-on-frame kayak while offering a simplified set up. With a slightly wider footprint and speedier setup than the previous models, the AirFusion Elite increases stability in the water and offers a roomy, comfortable feel. Combination of aluminum alloy frame materials and high-pressure air tubes results in a rigid, high-performance inflatable kayak. PVC tarpaulin skin offers superb puncture resistance; welded seams ensure long life. Zippered access on bow and stern aids in setup and offers access to items stored below the deck, and rear roll-top hatch offers additional storage. Molded, low-profile rubber handles ease transport to the water; inflatable cockpit coaming offers easy attachment of optional sprayskirt (not included). Bungee deck lacing allows easy access to gear, and beverage pockets behind the seat offer thirst-quenching storage. D-ring gear tie-downs offer attachment points. Easy-to-use Boston valves and Twistlok(TM) valves are compatible with most pumps and speed setup time. Comes with a repair kit, instruction manual and a heavy-duty duffel storage bag. Do not under inflate your boat! Advanced Elements recommends inflate with a 12V electric pump, and then top off with a quality hand pump to get up to the recommended pressure.
