Aire Outfitter II Inflatable Kayak- The Outfitter II Inflatable Kayak by Aire is an extra stable IK for tandem paddlers. You can also paddle it solo for extra cargo space and stability. This inflatable kayak tracks well and responds quickly, leaving the paddlers feeling comfortable and at ease when boating. The increased diameter tubes and low center of balance is designed to give paddlers confidence and boost their river running skills. Great forfamily trips, it rolls up small enough to easily stow in the trunk of a car and is quickly inflated with a standard river pump. The Outfitter II Inflatable Kayak by Aire will be an instant favorite and one that will last for years and years.
One is fun and two is a riot. In the AIRE Outfitter II Tandem Inflatable Kayak, you and a paddling pal can bounce along some middling rapids without worrying about unintended dips in the drink. The wide hull on this rugged rapid-ripper keeps you riding high above the water when you see more white spray than smooth and cool blue (water, that is). Elevated tips and a flat bottom let you spin and slip through tight squeezes. If you're going it alone on a two-week Alaska expedition, this stable waterbaby handles lots of your gear and photo equipment so you can be ready if you get graced with the Northern Lights. PVC on the outside is rough, tough, and ready to rumble on class II and III fun. The large tube diameter, continually curved from end to end, and low seat position work together to limit your accidental adventures overboard. The internal AIREcell system is what buoys this boat. Between the float and PVC, you get a stiff, responsive boat for fun on the flats or foam. One-way marine Leafield B7 valves come with protective caps so you don't have to worry about springing a leak mid-river. Two Cheetah Chairs are set low in the boat so your center of gravity stays near the water surface for increased stability. The chairs each have a large storage pocket and a bottle holder, and they can be removed to cushion your tush when you're having lunch on a rocky bit of shoreline. Two carry handles make it easy for you and your boating buddy to tote this 46-pound pleasure craft. Sixteen cargo loops let you hit the water fully equipped for just about anything.
Making room for two, the Outfitter II is a good choice for paddlers seeking extra stability while tandem paddling in whitewater. Its increased diameter tubes and low center of balance is designed to give paddlers confidence and boost their river running skills.
