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.

Advanced Elements Advanced Frame Inflatable Kayak is an awesome alternative for those who dont want to transport a hard kayak. I actually have two of these, one of them is at least 7 years old and I loved it so much, I recently purchased a second one so I could bring someone along. I have had this kayak in less than ideal ocean conditions and never once felt unsafe. I have also inadvertantly but more importantly kayak surfed with this baby on the North Shore of Hawaii, this is an incredible kayak, highly recommended! I also recommend grabbing the backpack AE makes for this kayak as it makes travel that much easier. SAdly enough, this kayak has also been packed away covered in sand and still came out unscathed. Despite sometimes rough seas in both the Atlantic and Pacific and the less than ideal conditions my teenagers have stored it in, this inflatable is a great investment for any paddler! We recently purchased a sail to hook to this kayak and now we are trying out kayak sailing. Bravo AE for this versatile watercraft!
Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Inflatable Kayak Colorado resident, female over 60 Approx 5'5" 125#. Have taken this out 4 times in last 2 weeks. Last time was on Lake Dillon, CO This is the 1st lake with power boats. Felt stable, but would purchase water bailing system if around power boats in any kayak, hard or inflatable. Very happy with purchase. I had borrowed earlier model on lake several times, as I really didn't think I would like inflatable. This model tracks better and has better lumbar support. Still messing with seat adjustments, mostly because foot area OK for me as setup now, but not super roomy.
