PLEASE NOTE: This is the 2019 model shown. The new 2022 model is out, with the key improvements:

  • NEW! Foot controlled rudder system for effortless manoeuvrability (optional)
  • Improved high quality 1680D All-Terrain bag (with rugged 3-wheels)
  • Improved comfort footrests
  • Improved paddle quality with stronger blades and shaft.
  • Improved bow drainage system
  • Removed dual-drain valves from in the floor and moved to single drain plug at nose.


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 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.
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.

Drop Stitch Construction Core

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?

    Key Features 
  1. Up to 4x higher operating pressure (up to 10PSI) than regular inflatable kayaks.
  2. 2 side carrying handles, allows kayak to be used and transported easily by one person. 
  3. Adjustable 4-point high-back seat provides excellent back support and comfort.
  4. Smart drainage system allows water to be drained via rear drain plug.
  5. Detachable large skeg keeps kayak on a straight track while paddling
  6. Tough, durable, compact, and lightweight, with great manoeuvrability and excellent stability.
  7. Surpass the speed of a hard-shell kayak yet enjoy easy portability.
  8. Multiple D-rings allow seat adjustments.
  9. Replaceable high-pressure valves are reliable and airtight.
  10. Unique ultralight, universal design for all ages
  11. This Kayak can be transported on roof racks whilst inflated, saving you the time of  inflating and deflating especially if you will be using this regularly.
