Based on popular demand, AirKayaks has packaged the popular inflatable AdvancedFrame Convertible kayak with upgraded accessories from Advanced Elements - in a limited edition blue - to create the ultimate AdvancedFrame Convertible DS Series™.
The unique AdvancedFrame2 Convertible Inflatable Kayak from Advanced Elements features truly cutting-edge design, with its built-in rigid bow and stern and high-end components.The front and back ribs 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! While most inflatables ride ON the water, the AdvancedFrame rides IN the water.This DS Series Advanced Elements convertible 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. Gear can be stored behind the rear seat. It sets up in easily, and is compact enough to take along for an adventure anywhere. The kayak's durable double-coated fabric, heavy-duty PVC and electronically welded seams can take bumps, scrapes and rough water.The Advanced Elements convertible kayak features optimal roominess for those that don't like to be hemmed in. But in a matter of seconds, with the optional single or double decks you can create a "closed deck" kayak with the ability to use a spray skirt. Three seating arrangements allow for maximum versatility! If you love the water, but like to travel light, this sleek compact inflatable 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 it 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! Duffle bag included!

While the kayak performs well if you take on any water it is very difficult to dry and you essentially need to take all tubes out as well as the interior bow and stern hard plastic backing pieces. These are held in by a rubber sleeve that water accumulates in and one most dry by hand with towel and hair dryer and are hard to get to. The design is perplexing? These plastic supports should be built in and even better would be to armor the bow and stern on the exterior so if one encounters obstacles and rocks the soft bottom does not tear so easily. Finally, I’ve been wanting to purchase the double deck and they are never available. Overall a fun craft but not very water worthy! Buy a solid kayak or an inflatable that is not inserted in an outer shell.
Did not come with Thawrt Foot brace. Totally not satisfied. Can’t reach the company I purchased through
We wanted a kayak to take with us when we go on the road in our pickup/slide in camper. A rigid boat was not doable because we had no way to carry one. After a bunch of research we finally bought the Advanced Elements tandem kayak with the drop stitched floor. I gotta say, we are happy with the purchase. The boat sets up easily. Since the pressures are low in the AE the hand pump was not a problem. I mean….it takes some work, but I am 63 and had no problem doing it. We bought the drop stitched floor because we did not want the bend when carrying or on the water. The standard floor takes 2 lbs of pressure and the ds floor takes 4-6. It makes the bottom of the boat rigid. I would put the setup time at a leisurely 10 minutes.
Our first outing was on a lake with a stiff breeze going on. The boat felt stable and tracked well. It cut through the water just fine. Take down time was 5 minutes or so.
This boat is not a pool float. It is a decent flat water cruiser. You can put it in the back of your SUV or in the back of your crew cab truck, I recommend it for space challenged folks who want to paddle.
