Integral 5-Tube I-beam Floor
Several years ago we changed our floor construction from a 7 tube I-beam floor to 5 tubes. This greatly enhanced the paddling performance of our Sport Kayaks because the paddler sits higher and most of the weight is born by the floor, rather than the side chambers.
Because larger I-beam tubes have more rigidity than smaller tubes it also created a more rigid inflatable floor with natural chines which improve the speed and tracking of our Sport Kayaks, making it easier to paddle long distances whenever you wish.
Two Rear Skegs For Tracking And Speed
Tracking is very important in a kayak. Inflatable kayaks need skegs to track smoothly across the water – otherwise your paddling effort is wasted. Cheaper competitive boats without rear skegs just weave and wander across the water, wasting your paddling effort.
The Sport Kayaks feature two molded skegs – just like a surf board – so you go faster and further with less paddling effort! These skegs are made of an almost indestructible molded plastic that will not be harmed by hitting rocks or running up on the beach.
Deluxe One-way Valves On All Air Compartments
These Deluxe One-way Valves are simple and easy to use. A great improvement over traditional pipe valves which are hard to close, loose air easily and crack over time. Our Deluxe Valves come with an inner diaphragm which allows air to be pumped in without air escaping afterwards. The larger opening of the Deluxe Valves allows for rapid inflation and deflation. Comes with molded O-rings that can’t be lost and a tether that will keep them attached to the hull at all times. Final seal is achieved by the outside cap for true air tightness.
