Advanced Elements Strait Edge 2 Tandem Inflatable Kayak - While most self-bailing kayaks are designed for paddling whitewater, the Strait Edge 2 is the first two-person inflatable to incorporate an aluminum bow and stern frame to improve tracking in open water conditions. When the chambers are inflated these frame ribs press against the outer cover and form a high performance bow and stern. The hull design is similar to a hardshell sit-on-top kayak. The self-bailing design allows the Strait Edge 2 to shed water while paddling in bigger waves. You can also close the ports in calm or cold water for a drier ride. Three seating positions allow for the kayak to be set up in solo or tandem mode. The breathable foam mesh back supports and padded seats are perfect for all day paddling comfort. Two included rod holder give you increase versatility for fishing. The Strait Edge 2 is heavy-duty PVC Tarpaulin material. It is made by combining two sheets of PVC with a fabric mesh in the middle for extreme puncture resistance. Best of all, it can be packed away into its included duffel bag and carried into remote locations. Whether you are storing it in your closet or the trunk of your car, you can be sure that you are always just a few pumps away from your next adventure. Now get out there and(more...)
