Now in stock - winner of the 2019 European Paddlesport Product of the Year Awards! A PVC-free, high-pressure convertible touring kayak for 2+ paddlers, that can quickly go from single to double paddling with room for a child or gear.

Innova's new high-pressure Thaya uses a combination of a rugged, PVC-free material with drop-stitch technology to create an inflatable kayak with excellent stability, rigidity and maneuverability.

The Innova Thaya is constructed from a 1200 denier rubber-coated laminate material called Nitrilon  – this consists of a synthetic rubber coating over polyester on the inside and outside of the tube. Nitrilon is stronger, more abrasion and puncture-resistant than PVC as well as being greener – there is minimal out-gassing.

The Thaya is different from Innova’s other inflatable touring kayaks, as the Nitrilon material is used for the floor’s drop stitch construction. Drop-stitch technology consists of two layers of fabric held together by thousands of threads, allowing the chambers to be inflated to much higher pressures.

Perfect for recreational touring, the Innova Thaya sports a long 13'5" length and 35" beam, making it speedy, comfortable and stable. It glides through calm waters and tackles swells with ease - great for lakes, slow-moving rivers, coastal waters and inlets - while the removable tracking fin keeps the Innova Thaya straight on course.

Easily paddled as a double, the open cockpit provides enough extra space for kayaking gear, yet quickly turns into a solo kayak by moving the seat. Add an optional third seat and take a child along for the ride. The Thaya has a carrying capacity of 501 lbs.

The Innova Thaya packs compactly in its own drybag/backpack, easily stored in the trunk of a car or closet. It can be set up in a matter of minutes.

GUMOTEX / Kayak THAYA: Patented drop stitch technology (01:36)

The revolutionary THAYA inflatable kayak, using a combination of our special Nitrilon® material and the Dropstitch* technology, is defined by excellent stability, stiffness and maneuverability. The unique combination of the inflatable side tubes and modern Dropstich* technology creates an universal combination which maximizes the user’s comfort and improves the handling properties of the boat. Other typical properties of the THAYA kayak are a low weight and excellent rollability. It is suitable for the recreation on lakes and rivers up to WW2. An additional foredeck (optional accessory) protects it from water flowing over the bow, and so increases the user’s comfort during paddling (eg. on sea). It can be adjusted for 1, 2 adults or 2 adults + 1 child. *The Dropstitch technology is based on the connection of the upper and lower layers of the fabric with thousands of polyester fibers. This fabric, equipped with an airtight coating, is protected from both sides by a resistant Nitrilon® material. Thanks to the thousands fibers holding the both layers together, these products can be inflated up to very high pressure. It enables the material to obtain robustness approaching the robustness of solid materials, and that is with the preservation of the same rollability as our existing boats.
