Updated graphics and seating! Lightweight and more open version of the popular AdvancedFrame kayak.

AirKayaks Special - FREE Advanced Elements Packlite RollTop Dry Bags, Set of 3 ($25.99 value) with purchase, while supplies last. Automatically added at checkout.

Please also see our new AE1017DS Advanced Elements Sport DS with high-pressure floor, high-backed lumbar seat with padded base, backpack carrying case and double-action pump with gauge.

This Advanced Elements foldable kayak 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 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 AdvancedFrame Sport 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.

  • Getting back into kayaking after twelve years... perfection!

    by Professional HumanBeing – 5th Aug 2019

    The Sport is a dream (though at 6 feet, I'm about at the height limit for maximum comfort and storage and have my eyes on the next kayak already).. I paddle easy rivers and lakes and this brings me such joy....the look, comfort (dropstitch floor) and the deck bag etc --all AE designs-- are so perfect from a company that knows what it's doing and continually refines itself. Total quality and integrity..I'm a AE fan for life.

  • I was skeptical

    by Andrew B. – 19th May 2017

    I purchased this boat for my GF who only had ever paddled one other time in our inflatable tandem . I was pleased to get her a boat for $500 w/backbone but was skeptical about the quality and performance. Well I am impressed beyond words and she just loves it and can handle it like a pro ! Awesome boat !!

  • Love our Sports!

    by Unknown – 15th Aug 2013

    We arrived in Chicago to find both of our Advanced Elements SPORT Kayaks and the pump waiting for us at our hotel. We've just had our first little kayak 'trip' back here in Toronto. The pump works like a million bucks - quick and easy. The boats are stable, comfy, quick and lots of fun. They are BEAUTIFULLY designed and constructed. Everything works perfectly.

    Our entire purchase "experience" with Airkayaks. com has been an absolute joy. I appreciate (very much) your sound advice on the phone and the fact that you recommended these excellent "value" boats to us when you could have suggested way more costly versions did not go unnoticed. This whole deal went together "last-minute" without a hitch - really slick !!!

    FYI - Your price of $369.00 (no tax, natch) is real bargain in the U.S. but up here, in the Great White North, these kayaks cannot be had for less than $510.00 + 13% tax. To cut to the chase, we saved a fortune, learned a lot about kayaks, expended NO effort and wound up thrilled with our pair of killer boats.

    We would be honoured to recommend AirKayaks.com to anyone on the planet who is even remotely considering buying an inflatable kayak.

  • Looking forward to much enjoyment

    by Alan – 12th Jul 2011

    The canoe and equipment arrived a few days ago saving about £150 over UK prices, even after allowing for shipping and duty. Thank you for your patience in dealing with my questions. I have been out on the river and the kayak is excellent, straightforward to inflate and launch and paddles well. I'm looking forward to getting a lot of enjoyment with the canoe this summer and future years.

  • I want another one!

    by Murray – 23rd May 2011

    I recently took delivery on an AE1017 Sport Kayak and I have to tell you I just love it! It handles great for my purposes and is a breeze to set up and take down.
