Based on popular demand, AirKayaks packaged the best-selling, fold-up kayak for sale again, now with upgraded accessories from Advanced Elements - in a limited edition blue - to create the ultimate AdvancedFrame DS Series™.
Now, AirKayaks introduces the limited edition Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame DS-XLC Series™* inflatable kayak. With an identical footprint to the AdvancedFrame DS XL, the XLC has an added 5 inches in length over the standard AdvancedFrame, creating a kayak comfortable enough for both smaller and taller paddlers. The longer, streamlined body - in conjunction with the high pressure floor - provides better tracking and increased glide with minimal increase in weight, while an adjustable foot peg system allows paddlers to find the support perfect for their size and paddling style.This AdvancedFrame foldable kayak also features a removable, zip-on deck, allowing paddlers the flexibility of an open design for easy entry, or a closed, deck design for inclement weather and for attaching an optional spray skirt. A zippering pocket, bungee deck lacing and multiple d-rings on the deck allow paddlers to easily access gear. Additional d-rings along the kayak perimeter provide more attachment points for gear or for utilizing an optional Rapidup sail.Removable rigid ribs in the bow and stern are made of high grade aluminum, allowing the bow to slice through water like a knife. The stern acts as a skeg, which increases the tracking performance. When the chambers inflate, these ribs are pressed against the outer cover and form a high performance bow and stern which rival the tracking of a hard-shell day touring kayak yet still folds up compactly!The AdvancedFrame kayak is manufactured from extremely durable materials and high-end components. There is plenty of on-board storage space without cramping your leg room, making extended trips much more enjoyable. It sets up in just a few minutes, and is compact enough to take along for an adventure anywhere. The foldable kayak's durable double-coated fabric, heavy-duty PVC and electronically welded seams can take bumps, scrapes and rough water.If you love the water, but like to travel light, this sleek compact foldable kayak will add a new dimension to your outdoor adventures. From lakes, and mild rivers, to bays and estuaries, it is a delight to get on the water quickly; keep the foldable kayak deflated in the trunk of your car and the next time you're driving along a river, lake or bay, you can be fishing or paddling in just minutes! This is the perfect watercraft for campers, Rvers, travelers or those that just don’t want the hassle of roof racks! Backpack-style duffle bag included!

It was a little bit of learning experience but am comfortable with my decision and think this is excellent product.
I am so thrilled to have made the decision to go with AirKayaks.com, and to have chosen the Advanced Elements inflatable kayak that I got. Initially, I had some challenges reaching AirKayaks, and that made me a bit nervous to proceed, but then they got back to me, and I decided to trust the opportunity and made the purchase online. They sent it out to me IMMEDIATELY, and everything arrived in perfect order. I ADORE...did I say ADORE!! my new boat... She is an amazing Beast, and my new best friend! We are heading out to go lake-hopping across New York State and Quebec, and I feel totally confident and psyched to be embarking on this outing in this craft. It is tough to reach the staff at AirKayaks, but they came through 100% and I highly recommend supporting their business. Many thanks!
Haven't been able to yet... the pictures suggested it came with a paddle but after I was finally able to get out to a pond to try it out, I found out that was not the case.
The boat is great. The method for inflation is fabulous. It’s been fun times using them, but the foot rests are not ideal. They drop to the floor and are useless at that point. I’ve found a way to keep mine off the floor, but my boyfriend really struggles with his. I would love to see adjustable pedals or a better bar design. Overall, however, I am extremely happy with our kayaks!
I have not had a chance to try her out yet!
