Innova Twist Inflatable Kayak - The Twist Inflatable Kayak by Innova is the boat you have been dreaming of for day touring, backpacking into hidden lakes, or fishing your favorite mountain river. The lightest, greenest, general recreation kayak on the market at only 16.3 pounds, the Twist comes in a nylon bag no larger than a sleeping bag stuff sack and is easily backpackable. Made of Nitrylon Lite fabric, a rip-stop polyester fabric with a coating of natural rubbers on the interior for great air retention. The Twist is green because it does not use PVC in its fabric like the majority of competing inflatables, and the world is slightly better for it. High-quality bayonet-style valves are used in three separate main chambers making it so the kayak can be paddled to shore in the unlikely event that any one of its chambers loses air. A substantial, removable tracking fin is included, and gear bungees are installed behind the seat. When you are ready to hike to your favorite hidden watering hole, don't forget to pack your Innova Twist Inflatable Kayak.
This packable one-person inflatable kayak is exceptionally lightweight and easy to use. It packs down supersmall, so you can carry it with you on your travels, wherever they may take you. Made from Nitrylon, a laminate of synthetic and natural rubber over 1200-denier polyester. Designed for use on ponds, small lakes, and slow-moving rivers. High-quality bayonet valves allow quick and reliable inflation in three separate main chambers. Soft and comfortable inflatable seatback is removable. Gear bungee in stern. Repair kit and pump hose valve adapter included. We recommend the NRS Bravo Wonder Pump 6 or L.L.Bean Stowaway River Pump for rapid inflation. A removable tracking fin is included. Imported.
If you're planning a trip on a river with a long approach, there's no need to hire a local burro to carry your rigid boat, the Innova Twist I Inflatable Kayak is the lightest and most portable inflatable kayak you'll find. Packable in a sleeping bag-sized sack, the Twist I Kayak is made of PVC-free natural rubbers and tough ripstop polyester cloth, and is treated with a Teflon water repellency to aid in rapid drying and resist staining. This one person Innova kayak tracks straight with its removable tracking fin, and it offers superior stability and seating comfort. At just 16 pounds, your kayaking horizons just got a whole lot broader.
