 Product Description and Specs

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.

• New advanced inflation valves
• Inflatable coaming for attaching an optional spray skirt
• Durable double coated honey comb rip stop fabric, welded seams
• Molded rubber handles, adjustable back support, D-ring tie down
• Skeg tracking fin and reinforced bow

ACK Review: With multiple chambers and 3 layers of protection the Convertible leaves no worries. Tracks well thanks to reinforced bow and stern guides as well as a small skeg aft. Folds up into a bag that will fit in even the smallest trunks.

AE AF solos are the best! Bought one last year on whim. Now, in my Indian Rocks Beach / Intracoastal condo complex, we have a fleet of seven boats (with others becoming jealous) exactly like mine. They are quick to set up, easy to store and transport, with handy built-ins and easy to accessorize. Get the hand pump for sure; easy, quick, portable and it "pressurizes" the bladders like a 12v can't. After 45 trips, the other day a guy thought mine was new. The double-nylon layer protects the overlapping bladders superbly. Comfortable seating and back like no hard shell. (Use a beach towel on top of the floor for even more comfort.) Small as the skeg is, it works great to keep the boat on track. Love being able to take two of these, with all gear, in the trunk of my small coupe and never have to worry about highway wind or theft. These are seven (so far) happy yakkers who love this boat.

Have used this for exploring small lakes and for inland marine (Puget Sound). Design and construction are excellent. The coaming is not continuous so there is a leak at front center, even if you use a spray skirt, which is probably why it is not recommended for big water. With the Backbone installed, cruises easily at 2.8 mph and without much of a push to 3.3 mph. The fastest I could get was 4.5 mph and that's putting out quite a bow wake. Storage space is sufficient for overnight travel if you're into ultralight backpacking; I would not hesitate to take this boat on an overnight. Easy to assemble/inflate and deflate, about 10 mins to fully assembled and about the same to put it back into the bag. Nice boat.

Make sure your top criteria is portability. Make sure you get a backbone. Given these 2 things, you won't feel odd or left behind amongst the sleek sea kayaks or SOTs out there.

Bought 2 to keep in the RV. Set up and take down was easy. Boats handled well on the windy day we tested them, crosswind, downwind, no problem. The little skeg worked well. They are not, however as efficient as hard shell boats, so expect to paddle shorter distances. Also, there is a high likelihood of getting wet as you exit, as there is nowhere else to push yourself up, except the sides, and I've pushed a side or two under the waterline without realizing it... Until the seat filled with water.

these are the best!!! we are new to kayaking and these make it so easy. I have them in the trunk of my subaru legacy at all times and we can kayak any time we want. They are very durable, our first trip was over some pretty shallow rocks and they were awesome. I highly recommend them.

Great little Kayak for youth especially. Had a little problem with one of the valves for the rim. Had to glue it back to the tube. Bought two of these. Service is great.

We have two of these kayaks. They are proving to be excellent for the paddling we are doing along the Caribbean coastline of the Dominican Republic. They have performed well in windy conditions, and are a real joy in calm weather. They are very easy to inflate and deflate, are relatively lightweight. They can be stored easily, and transported even easier. No kayak is perfect, but we feel like these are great for what we do.

Review:
Just took the advanced frame to Alaska for a 150mi. paddle down the Kobuk river. The boat preformed well in fast moving water, and the skeg kept in strait in the slow water. The set-up is easy, and deflation and packing it into the bag is a breeze. The hull material is tough stuff, and after hauling it over rocks, and portaging over a mountian, I could not find a scratch. I am 6' tall, so the entry/exit was a bit tough. The tie-down points in the back were great,and the bungee in the front worked well. Overall, a well-made boat.

Very well made inflatable that is easy to set up and take down. It tracks well and gives a sense of stability. The only disappointments are the snugness, especially for the feet and the agility required for smooth entry and exit.
