Based on popular demand, AirKayaks has packaged the popular Sport inflatable kayak with upgraded accessories - in a limited edition blue. The Sport is a lightweight and compact version of the popular AdvancedFrame kayak. It "sports" a large cockpit opening for easy entry and exit. The proven aluminum ribs in the bow and stern provide increased paddling performance in this sporty new design!

The included high-pressure drop stitch floor adds rigidity, provides better tracking and increased glide without an increase in weight.

The built-in ribs are made of high grade aluminum, allowing the bow to slice through water like a knife. The stern acts as a skeg, which increases the tracking performance. When the chambers inflate, these ribs are pressed against the outer cover and form a high performance bow and stern which rival the tracking of a hard-shell day touring kayak yet still folds up compactly!

The Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Sport DS kayak is manufactured from extremely durable materials and high-end components. There is plenty of on-board storage space behind the seat and on the decks. It sets up in just a few minutes, and is compact enough to take along for an adventure anywhere. The foldable kayak's durable double-coated fabric, heavy-duty PVC and electronically welded seams can take bumps, scrapes and rough water.  

If you love the water, but like to travel light, this sleek compact foldable kayak will add a new dimension to your outdoor adventures. From lakes, and mild rivers, to bays and estuaries, it is a delight to get on the water quickly; keep it deflated in the trunk of your car and the next time you're driving along a river, lake or bay, you can be fishing or paddling in just minutes! This foldable kayak is the perfect watercraft for campers, Rvers, travelers or those that just don’t want the hassle of roof racks! Duffle bag included!

  • Rigid-formed Bow and Stern w/Aluminum rib
  • Includes hefty duffle carrying bag.

  • Easy to set up/take down; great kayak

    by Guest – 4th Sep 2019

    Got my kayak 3 weeks ago. Have used 4 times already. Less than 10 mins to set up - really! I worried about carrying it; it's awkward, but I can handle it by myself. It tracks well in the water. One caution - I'm 5"8, with 33" inseam - my legs just fit if I put the seat all the way back. Someone with much longer legs wouldn't fit well.

  • I love this kayak

    by Deirdre – 1st Sep 2019

    Easy to set up and take down. Tracks great.

    I just got this and have taken it out 3 times.

    Air kayaks has a fantastic package.

    This is the best kayak, loads of fun. I get questions and stares.
