About Drop-Stitch 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 2021 Air Glide 385 by Bay Sports, a 100% drop stitch kayak designed here in Manly, Australia. The Air Glide 385 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...

What makes the Air Glide series 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 13.9kgs, the material is much lighter than any polyethylene kayak on the market, whilst the boat shape is narrower and nevertheless provides more space. And with up to 10psi 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. 
Drop-Stitch vs Normal Inflatable Kayaks?

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.

Key Differences Air Glide 385 vs. KXone Slider 375

                Air Glide 385 single inflatable

                I have difficulties getting kayaks on and off my roof because of shoulder, kneck and strength issues. But, I only have to get this onto the back seat or hatch boot which is feasible at 14kg. It is a bit more mucking about, equipment and time to inflate and I need a foam mat for my bad knees but I can achieve it alone and I am sure others won't find this as much an effort as I. This inflatable allows me to be independant and that is what matters. On the plus side it has a raised seat with a good back support and your but doesn't get wet. I need to raise my elbows a lot more to paddle over the sides so maybe the sides are a bit high for short people but I feel safe and keep dry. Additionally ,It is easy to wipe down so I know it is going in its' bag dry. I am short so when I have heaps of passengers and luggage I normally take the sit on top kayak because I have people to help me get it on and off my SUV but it is good to be independent. All inflatables are not as stable but once on the water I adjusted quickly but I am a novice and coped well on the lake; others might not even notice.The rigid bow, stern and reinforced sides allowed me to move faster or with less effort than the sit on top. This is better for me because I have so many physical limitations.There is no way I would buy a canvas inflatable as it takes ages to dry and I don't want to have to unpack and dry it out at home then have to re-pack it. The least amount of effort the better. Out of all inflatables, this kayak won hands down on care, the effort for the outcome, portability and ability to be independent..

                Absolutely love it

                Just want to tell you, I love my kayak. Must faster than my old one. Just takes a bit longer to deflate it. But quicker to inflate. We are at Maraboon Lake near Emerald, not far from Rockhampton. Very pleased with it. Kind regards from Bridgit.
