Welcome to the brand new 2022 Air Glide 410 by Bay Sports, a 100% drop stitch kayak designed here in Manly, Australia. The Air Glide 410 is a brilliant lightweight kayak with excellent tracking and build quality. But what makes this inflatable kayak so much more better than the rest? Read on...

Drop-Stitch vs. Regular inflatable kayaks?

Are inflatable kayaks any good?
Are they as good as normal kayaks?
Being inflatable, do they bend like pool toys?

These are questions we have been asked from beginners and expert kayakers alike, as they inquisitively ask about this advancement in kayaking. And for good reason.

How for so many years did most of us deal with lugging around heavy, polyethylene kayaks, straining our backs and having to worry about: 

  • Where am I going to store my kayak?
  • How light a kayak can I get?
  • What is the easiest way to transport my kayak?

Welcome to the brand new 2022 Air Glide 473 by Bay Sports, a 100% drop stitch kayak designed here in Manly, Australia. The Air Glide 473 is a brilliant lightweight kayak with excellent tracking and build quality. But what makes this inflatable kayak so much more better than the rest? Read on...

You're not alone if you hear inflatable kayak and think the inside is just filled with air. Whilst your average camping air mattress is just that, Drop-Stitch inflatables like our Air Glide range (and also our inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boards), contain millions of tough polyester threads that connect the top-to-bottom, and side walls of the kayak. This allows them to be inflated to high-pressures whilst giving them rock-hard rigidity and form.

The result? Hard shell kayak feel and performance, with easy transportation and storage of an inflatable.

PLEASE NOTE: The latest model has a spring loaded rudder (different to the one shown in the video below). 

What makes this inflatable kayak superior?
  • Advancements in inflatable water sport technologies, in particular drop-stitch manufacturing techniques, have developed in recent times, we are experiencing a fast transition into more practical, lightweight, yet sturdy watercraft.
  • This inflatable Drop Stitch kayak is faster, stiffer and stronger than any conventional air kayak. It can be easily transported in a compact bag. At just 19.9kgs, the material is much lighter than any polyethylene double kayak on the market, whilst the boat shape is narrower and nevertheless provides more space. And with up to 10 psi air pressure, so it is as stable and solid as a hard shell kayak. 
  • The side chambers and bottom floor are made of high-denier (drop stitch) fabric for superior strength, high-pressure inflation, durability, and abrasion resistance in this patent-pending kayak construction. 
  • Moulded V-shaped shape underneath bow and stern made of rigid, durable material for better tracking, easier paddling, and greater speed. 
  • Up to 50% lighter than their traditional counterparts plastic kayak, making for easy transportation to and from the water.
  • Folds up into a compact bag, making great for those living in apartments, or those with little room to store a plastic kayak - you can leave it in the boot of your car or store it away in your cupboard.
  • Remarkably tough and durable, being made from an abrasion resistant material, inflatable kayaks won't ding or scratch like a traditional plastic kayak.
  • Great performance and tracking capability, with huge advancements in the rigid V-hull, including a clever slide-in skeg, makes for a fast kayak that holds a straight line.

    The Air Glide is the ultimate inflatable kayak for use on rivers, light whitewater, on lakes and for kayaking for those demanding more than just a traditional inflatable.

    • 2 side carrying handles, allows kayak to be used and transported by one person.

    • Detachable large skeg keeps kayak on a straight track while paddling
    • Tough, durable, compact, and lightweight, with great maneuverability and excellent stability.

      Bay Sports Inflatable Kayak Comparison Chart
      Air Glide 473 vs. KXone Slider 485
      1. Whilst both are the same high build and construction quality, the Air Glide is a better value 100% Drop-Stitch inflatable kayak.
      2. Bay Sports have further developed on the KXone design, adding 5cm extra width, 4cm higher side walls, and 12cm shorter length to provide greater stability and better prevent water splashing into the boat.
      3. Option to add foot controlled rudder system for vastly improved maneuverability.
      4. We have also added 2 x side carry handles, for effortless carrying by one person. This is a huge benefit other inflatable kayaks lack.
      5. Removable wind deflector and water shield - diverts water to channel off the kayak and back into the water, not in your kayak. 
      6. 3 Year Warranty on Bay Sports Air Glide series, opposed to a 2 Year Warranty on the KXone Slider series. We stand by the excellent build quality.
      Air Glide 410 vs Air Glide 473
      • The 410 is 66cm shorter than its big brother the 473, this makes the 410 more manoeuvrability however tracks slightly at slower pace (it is however, still pretty quick in the water!) 
      • The 410 is the top pick for those who like to use both as a tandem or also as a single because of its shorter length, making it more manoeuvrable on the water
      • The 410 is 4kg lighter making this easier to carry by one person. 
      • Both models can be configured to have seating positioned in the middle of the kayak to be used as a single seater kayak
      • The 410 is suitable for two paddlers up to 6'4" in height each plus storage room in the bow and stern for a dry bag.
      • For families or for taking out kids/four legged friends we recommend you stick with the 473 model for the extra storage space and leg room.
