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?

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.

I got the backbone after reading other reviews saying it improved the handling of the kayak. It certainly does. You have to be sure to get it centered though (they suggest using an ink-marker pen to mark the centre-line on the kayak floor). The first time I installed it I didn't get it quite right and felt the boat veering, but when I used it after that I got it centered and the tracking was great. Makes the kayak feel really solid, too, and there's no sense that you're sitting on it. The only thing to note in using it is that it adds weight to the overall kayak during transit.

Unfortunately I have yet to enjoy my new AE kayak along with the backbone. However, I did very much appreciate the courtesy and service I received from ACK.

Tried both with and without the backbone and I would say there is a noticeable difference. I would highly recommend this backbone.

Get the best tracking with a backbone. Increase paddling efficiency. Increase glide. You won't regret the purchase.
