A unique fusion of aluminum alloy frame poles and high-pressure, dropstitch air tubes, results in a high-performance, rigid frame system which rivals the handling and speed of skin-on-frame kayaks.
Drop-stitch (DS) material is the same used in the inflatable paddle board market, where thousands of threads string the top and bottom panels together, allowing it to be pumped up to higher pressures, thus making it more rigid.
The outer shell is now constructed from a polyurethane tarpaulin, which – in conjunction with the DS side chambers – gives a smoother finish, increased rigidity and a more hydrodynamic outline.
By utilizing dropstitch material on the side chambers, the Advanced Elements AirFusion EVO sports a narrower, 24-inch profile without decreasing stability or interior width. The AirFusion EVO still features three aluminum ribs on the floor and under the hull, providing a sculpted look as well as a v-shaped keel, which aids in slicing through the water.
The new AirFusion EVO high-pressure inflatable kayak features a streamlined set up procedure with fewer chambers, allowing one to get out on the water quickly. The EVO is constructed with six inflation chambers (two side chambers, booster seat, two thwarts and the coaming tube) versus four side chambers in the previous model. The DS tubes are removable, allowing one to replace just a part – rather than the entire kayak shell – if ever needed.
