Tell me the Truth ... are Inflatable Kayaks any Good?
Inflatable kayaks cop a lot of flak and quite frankly, I’m sick of it.
Because, like everything in life, you get what you pay for.
The Advanced Elements range of inflatable kayaks are NOT the cheapest on the market, but they ARE the best.
Here’s why they are worth every penny:
Durable & Reliable
Imagine you’re on a multi-day kayak expedition in the middle of nowhere. You really can’t afford for something to go wrong. To some people, it might seem crazy to take an inflatable kayak on a big trip like that. And yet, I have had several customers take on some amazing adventures in their inflatable kayaks…
Stable & Easy to Paddle
This is the second biggest concern people have, after durability – are inflatable kayaks any good when it comes to actually paddling them?
Most people that call me have not had a huge amount of kayaking experience. So it is not okay to sell them a kayak that goes in circles and tips them out…
Relaxation Without the Hassle
Kayaking is absolutely delightful. It connects you with nature and allows you to relax.
But installing roof racks is expensive and a hassle.
You’re wondering if inflatable kayaks are any good – when it comes to reducing hassle, they are awesome…
Advanced Elements - The Best Inflatables on the Market!
“What other brands do you stock?”
This is a very common question I get and people are always curious about my decision to stick with just one brand. I only stock Advanced Elements.
Why do I only stock Advanced Elements inflatables?
Basically, I don’t want to deal with returns.
That’s the truth.
With the Advanced Elements range of inflatable kayaks and inflatable SUPs, I might sell less than the cheap brands, but I can sleep well at night.
I know, in my heart of hearts, that I am selling the best inflatables on the market.
So What Makes Advanced Elements the Best?
They love paddling. Seriously, Advanced Elements is made up of a bunch of guys in the USA who love paddling and designing watercraft.
Sounds obvious that they would love paddling, but the cheap inflatable kayaks and SUPs are designed in factories by people who have no interest or understanding of paddling.
This means that Advanced Elements TEST and REFINE their prototypes.
Advanced Elements isn’t some giant corporation interested in cashing in on a fad. They’ve been around for a long time and take pride in creating quality inflatables.
They stand behind their 12 month manufacturer’s warranty with integrity and compassion.
They know that there are multiple elements to creating a great inflatable watercraft:
- Performance on the water
- Speed of set up and pack away
- Weight and portability
And they strive for excellence in ALL those areas.
The Advanced Elements team out for a paddle – Ryan, Ritchie, Jeremy and Clay.
