ACK Review: Try these backbones in your advanced elements inflatable kayak for improved tracking and sturdiness. The ridge feel this will lend to all your adventures will be worth it every time. Could you function without your backbone?

If you are a big guy and you are close (or a little above...) your AdvancedFrame kayak weight limit, this backbone does the trick to distribute your weight and prevent the kayak to be bent on the center, with the bow and stern raised. I also notice some improvement on tracking and speed, but not much.

Does what it claims to. Easy to install or remove. Do not install if you will be going over rocks, it does increase hull vulnerability to abrasion. I just wish they shipped the boat with a storage bag big enough to hold the backbone.

A backbone is absolutely essential, to make your inflatable act more like a hardshell. Helps slice through the water.

Honestly, there's no noticeable difference with the Backbone on flat lake or slow river water. It may be that the biggest benefit is in ripple or white water, which I haven't tried since buying the Backbone. If you are using your inflatable just on flat water, you can probably save your money.

Essential for the Advanced Frame. End of story.
