The perfect backpacking inflatable kayak - only 16 lbs and sets up in 5 minutes!
The Innova Twist is one of the lightest and most portable inflatable kayaks on the market. At only 16 pounds, the Twist arrives in a small nylon bag no larger than a child's schoolbag -- easily backpackable.
The Innova Twist is constructed from LitePack, a polyester ripstop fabric that is single coated with rubber to increase air retension. A specialized manufacturing process vulcanizes the natural rubber compound on the interior of the fabric, resulting in durable construction that tolerates high interior pressure. The main chambers can be inflated to 3 PSI, translating into a stiff inflatable boat that handles responsively.
LitePack is PVC-free, making it more environmentally friendly than standard inflatables using PVC bladders - there is no out-gassing. The hull material is treated with a Teflon water repellant to aid in drying and prevent staining. It is also lightweight and stores compactly when deflated and folded.
High-quality military-style valves are used in the main chambers. An inflatable backrest and inflatable foot brace add to the paddler's comfort, while a rear storage chamber and gear bungees allow you to bring extra gear.
It's a great choice for recreational paddling on calm to slow-moving waters, and perfect for backpacking, RVs and travel.
