AIRE Force Inflatable Kayak - The Force inflatable kayak from AIRE is designed to mimic the maneuverability of hard shell kayaks, while providing the security and safety of an inflatable kayak. No other inflatable comes close to matching the Force's quickness and river play performance. The Force surfs waves, edges in and out of eddies, punches through holes and maneuvers quickly. Included thigh straps enhance your control while surfing, rolling and completing tricks, and built-in bow/stern float bags help you roll the AIRE Force like a pro. All are adjustable so the kayak can be dialed in to fit a wide range of sizes. PVC-coated tubes and floor provide superior durability, and internal bladders provide an extra measure of strength and safety. Play in holes, surf waves and at the end of the day, roll it up to fit into your trunk - if you're looking for the performance of a hard-shell with the convenience of an inflatable, then the AIRE Force inflatable kayak is for you.
If you're looking for the performance of a hard-shell with the convenience of an inflatable, then the AIRE Force Kayak is for you. Sleek design and rugged construction make this the ultimate in inflatable kayaks. An innovative inflatable with an air floor and almost no rocker, performs almost like a hard-shell kayak. The Force includes thigh straps to enhance control while surfing, rolling and completing tricks. Built-in float bags on stern and bow help you roll the AIRE Force like a pro. New, double-mesh drain holes drain quickly and don't plug with debris. Play in holes, surf waves and at the end of the day, roll it up to fit into your trunk. This play boat is recommended for intermediate to advanced boaters under 185 pounds. Repair kit included.
AIRE has a long history of manufacturing top-shelf river rafts and water products, and in response to a need for an easily transportable river kayak solution, it created the Force Inflatable Kayak. Compared to the rest of Aire's line of inflatable kayaks, no other boat comes close to the Force in matching the quickness and speed offered by a hardshell. Continuous hull rocker allows the Force to easily surf waves, the PVC shell handles the occasional brush with the bottom, Leafield valves insure precise inflation, and buoyancy-enchancing AIREcells allow you to adjust your cockpit and hull feel precisely to your liking. After a long day on the river, this boat quickly deflates, rolls up, and stashes in the back of your wagon or the bed of your truck, no roof rack required. For experienced kayakers on the hunt for a fun, quick inflatable for running day trips and morning-to-night river sections, this is the ideal choice.
