The Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame is a hybrid of a folding frame kayak and an inflatable kayak. Its bow slices through water like a knife and rivals the trackability of hard-shell kayaks. The stern acts as a skeg, increasing the tracking performance. It uses extremely durable materials and high-end components. There is plenty of on-board storage room for extended trips. It sets up in just a few minutes, and is compact enough to take along on a weekend adventure.

I love this kayak. It's easily portable, very comfortable, tracks well, and inflates in less than 10 minutes. I now own two Advanced Elements, and wouldn't go back to the hard kayaks.
This is a great kayak. We bought two different types of inflatables to test, as we planned to have three (one for me, and one for each of my kids). This one was by far superior in every way but weight to the other one we tried, and it is light enough to manage (i'm a small, not particularly strong woman, and my son is 12, and we can both haul this around without issues). We love it. we've taken it out multiple times and enjoyed it every time.
