Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak Review

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayak from Advanced Elements is a 15 foot long kayak that provides the either 1 or 2 person paddling. Utilizing the optionally available solo or double decks, it is possible to transform your AdvancedFrame Convertible kayak from a 1-person to a 2-person boat in just a few seconds. Integrated lightweight aluminum ribs give structure to the bow and stern and enhance tracking while paddling.

Extremely durable, the AE Advanced Frame Convertible Inflatable Kayak is constructed of 3 levels of fabric for maximum puncture prevention.

Comfort is never a problem with the AdvancedFrame Kayak. The included seats are padded, adjustable, and provide high back support for hours of padding and kayaking fun.

The Convertible Kayak is fast and straightforward to launch.  Simply unfold the kayak, inflate each chamber, and you're ready to rock.  It's also comes with an optional zip-on deck and stiffening bar for even improved tracking.

Positive Customer Reviews

Paddles fast, tracks like an arrow. Great for fishing or river running. I've used it well over 20 times and it performs like new.
-- S.N.

I can't say a single bad thing about this great kayak. It's absolutely perfect for use on a lake. We use ours every weekend. Very convenience compared to hard shells.
-- M.A.

This is a great kayak for a beginner. Tracks way better than I would have thought for an inflatable. Comfortable and easy to inflate.
-- A.L.

Negative Customer Comments

My only problem with these inflatables is that you must let them dry out completely before packing away. This can be time consuming.  I usually end up throwing in the trunk wet then laying it out at home to dry before finally packing it away in the bag
-- T.C.

It's lighter than a hard shell boat but still heavier than I thought. If you need to carry it a long distance keep this in mind.
