AdvancedFrame Inflatable Kayak
Up for review at Kayak Reviews is the AdvancedFrame Inflatable Kayak, which is made by the guys at Advanced Elements. This is an inflatable kayak, which can be broken down to fit in a bag and tossed in the trunk until your next outing. This one seat Kayak has been designed to compete with the expensive hard shell kayaks.
The soft shell kayak has its limitations but for someone looking for a good quality inexpensive kayak to get into the sport.
- Easy transportation and storage
- Fast and easy set up
- Built in Aluminum ribs
Easy transportation and storage
The AdvancedFrame Inflatable Kayak is easy to transport, fitting into a small bag when deflated. The Kayak itself weighs about 30 pounds and is approximately 10.5 feet long when fully inflated.
Fast and Easy set-up
Most reviews suggest that setting up this kayak can take as little as 10 minutes but on average 18 minutes the first time Since the Kayak itself comes preassembled the kayaker will only need to inflate the Kayak before launching into their water world.
Built in Aluminum ribs
The Kayak has built in aluminum ribs, which increase its durability as well as its tracking ability. A kayaker will have more ability to increase their speed and still stay in control of their kayak.
The AdvancedFrame Inflatable kayaks have a large amount of storage. There are mesh and bungee cording in the front of the kayak to tie down gear as well as an extra two feet of storage behind the removable chair where you can tuck away your day bag and gear.
Pros and Cons
Nearly every AdvancedFrame Inflatable Kayak review praised the product. For an entry-level kayaker to an experienced kayaking community member this Kayak has a lot to offer that its expensive hard-shell cousins cannot. This Kayak is very affordable, versatile and durable.
The company Advanced Elements, which makes this Kayak, is a great company with lots of support.
This Kayak cannot match its hard-shell cousins in the rougher waters and is really only suitable for the calm lakes and oceanfronts. It would be incredibly dangerous to use this Kayak on anything rougher than a class two river.
The tracking of this Kayak as well cannot match that of hard shell kayaks. Weight wise its limit is 300 pounds, which limits who can use it.
The reviews for the Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Kayak are nothing but good with an average of 4.5 stars on Amazon.com there are many additions a kayaker can make to the Kayak and Advanced Elements itself has a great record in the Kayaking industry with stellar reviews.
I would rank this a strong buy for a variety of paddlers out there looking to get wet in the water sports world. This is an extremely versatile kayak, which will support children and young kayakers as well as older kayakers.
The AdvancedFrame Kayak is definitely a high quality kayak as this review recommends its purchase.
