Now with a high-pressure floor! Comfortable, roomy and great performance - now with an integrated storage hatch!

AirKayaks Season Special - FREE AE3501 Advanced Elements Quickdraw Deck Bag($59.99 value) with purchase of an Advanced Elements Expedition Elite kayak. Automatically added at checkout.

The 13 ft. Advanced Elements Expedition Elite kayak takes all the great features of the original AE1009Y Expedition and then hits a home run! Introduced as a Limited Edition in 2015, the new version Expedition Elite AE1009XE sports a 4-6 PSI high-pressure floor, a color redesign, as well as some innovative design changes. A "deck lift" - consisting of an aluminum bar - works in conjunction with the current integrated inflatable deck lifts, to create a sculpted look with more knee/legroom as well as shedding accumulated water.

This high pressure kayak's features include a rear integrated storage hatch with rolltop closure and updated d-rings, making it easier to attach and access gear, velcro paddle holders and an Ocean Blue diamond ripstop material with orange graphics.

The new high-pressure floor provides super-rigidity for optimal paddling performance and tracking.

Compact enough for a weekend adventure, this high pressure kayak sets up in a few minutes, and has plenty of on-board storage for extended trips! And with the adjustable, high-backed, rigid lumbar seat, you're guaranteed comfortable rides during long excursions!

If you love the water, but like to travel light, the inflatable Advanced Elements Expedition Elite 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! The Advanced Elements Expedition Elite is the perfect watercraft for campers, Rvers, travelers or those that just don't want the hassle of roof racks! Duffle bag included! For extra savings, consider our demo model Expedition Elite Kayak.

    by Phil H – 30th Jul 2018

    I have numerous kayaks. My sons lives in an apartment with nowhere to store a hard shell. I was so impressed that I bought one for myself. Im very impressed as to how well it tracks and how stable even in class I and II. Bottom material seems to be resistant enough for most conditions. Set up and take down are easy and requires little time. A very fun kayak and well worth the money.
