The BackBone AFC is a bow-to-stern frame for the Advanced Elements Advanced Frame Convertible inflatable kayak. The backbone enhances both rigidity and performance.
Great enhancement to the AE AFC. Quick installation (after a little practice to make sure it's centered) and very effective in improving tracking, efficiency and glide. First time we used it, our speed was 2 to 4 mph faster on the same route, under the same conditions, than the previous day without the backbone. Strava doesn't lie.
Great product. Enhances the tracking and stiffness of the kayak. Just takes a few attempts to get it right in the center of the kayak. Some practice can make installing easier.
