Advanced Elements StraitEdge Inflatable Kayak Review

Looking for an inflatable sit-on-top kayak that is versatile, easy to set-up, comfortable, and durable?  The Advanced Elements StraitEdge Inflatable Kayak offers all of this and receives top ratings from its owners.

Advanced Hull Design

The StraitEdge Inflatable Kayak feature a bow and stern design that include removable aluminum ribs which decrease rocker and allow for superior tracking in open water. These aluminum ribs push against the outer cover when the boat is inflated producing a hull similar to that of a hard-shell sit-on-top kayak.

Extremely Versatile

Perfect for use in the surf or on the lake, you can easily set the kayak up for self-bailing to handle big waves or close ports for calm water.

Simple Set-Up

The StraitEdge kayak comes ready to paddle. Simply unpack the kayak, unfold it, inflate with air, and attach the seat.

Comfortable Fun

Advanced Elements Strait Edge Sit-on-top Inflatable Kayak includes a high support, adjustable padded seat for hours upon hours of fun paddling or fishing.


The StraitEdge is constructed out of a heavy-duty PVC Tarpaulin material offering superior durability and puncture-proof performance.

Other great features of this kayak include fishing rod holders, advanced inflation valves, rubber handles, adjustable seat back, bungee deck lacing, mesh pocket, self-baling ports, and welded seams.

Positive Customer Reviews

I've been using this on both lakes and whitewater and it rides great. Feels secure at all times and is very comfortable. I've hit plenty of rocks with no issues.
-- C.T.

Love this kayak. Takes class III rapids like a champ. Inflates in only minutes. Great for beginners like me.
-- P.S.

Purchased of these after seeing a guy on our nearby lake with one. I live around a mile from the lake and I love being able to just carry this down, blow it up, and paddle away. I use it for fishing and I love it.
-- J.R.

Negative Customer Comments

Kayak is a little wider than most so you'll want to buy a longer paddle.  Also, backrest could be improved.
-- S.M.

As with any inflatable, make sure its fully dry before you pack it away or expect mildew and mold.
