The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak is our fastest tandem kayak yet!
It combines the wonderful stability and space of the AdvancedFrame Convertible with the performance-enhancing drop-stitch floor.
And some added comfort with the inflatable lumbar support seats!
We love it, very stable, comfortable and easy to paddle with plenty of room.
Easy to inflate and versatile for me to go it alone with two dogs or go out on the water with someone else. Being a tandem, it’s easier to have someone else to help lug it in and out of the car, but excellent quality and service.
Easy to inflate, deflate and pack up. We can get it on the water in about 15 minutes. Very stable in the water and lots of room for two paddlers. Took it on a recent trip to Katarapko Creek and it was perfect. Emily's support in purchasing this Kayak was excellent. Informative and helpful on all counts.
Excellent, we had our maiden voyage last weekend @ Caloundra & were really impressed with the kayak. It was comfortable, tracked beautifully, & was effortless to paddle. The wind got up quite strongly while we were out on the water but it still cut really well through the water while battling the tide & wind. We are extremely happy with our choice, thanks to Emily's informative advice.
I purchased the Advanced Elements Advanced Frame Elite Convertible as a joint Christmas present for my partner and I. So far we've had it out both at the beach and on the Murray. It's been easy to set up and the pumping isn't too bad given its size. Both my partner (6'1"), and I find it comfortable and spacious in solo or tandem mode. It even fits easily back into its bag with all the accessories AND the addition of a pump to make the kit complete. The only change I'd make would be to add a foot rest for the front/solo paddler similar to what the rear paddler has. Emily was very helpful with a follow up call when she realised I'd made an error in my order. I'd highly recommend both the kayak and Oz Inflatables.
The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak is for those who want the best!
Glide straight with the patented AdvancedFrame design – no waggling when you paddle.
The Built in fin is another feature to help you paddle straight.
Unlike most tandem kayaks, the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak has plenty of leg room for BOTH paddlers, which means less arguments!
Most kayaks over 4m are classed as 3-seaters, but Advanced Elements have kept this one as a spacious tandem kayak.
The solo seating position means you are perfectly balanced in the kayak – no drag and no wag.
Changing between tandem and solo is simply a matter of where you clip the seats in – super easy!
At 4.6m, the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite is one of the longest, and therefore fastest inflatable kayaks on the market.
It also has a capacity of 249kg, so you can really load it up with gear.
With the inflatable lumbar cushion in the seat supporting your back, you can paddle for hours.
The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite has a low centre of gravity and a flat hull for effortless stability. This saves your strength and allows you to relax and enjoy the ride.
Advanced Elements have designed the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite to be wonderfully durable and safe.
With multiple air chambers, multiple layers covering the main chambers and the extra-tough PVC tarpaulin on the hull, you don’t really have to worry about punctures.
Packs up into a bag with detachable backpack straps. Super easy for travel and storage!
Packed bag dimensions: 91cm x 53cm x 33cm
The AdvancedFrame is designed to be a day touring type boat, for flat or open water. The bow and stern have a rigid semi-frame that gives it a hard edge. This greatly improves the tracking over traditional inflatables. The AdvancedFrame is fine for class 1 and 2 rivers, and durable enough for class 3, however it is really designed to paddle in a straight line, and therefore not recommended for rivers above class 3. When choosing a kayak for class 3 whitewater or greater, you really want a boat with a very rounded hull that will not grip on to the current, especially in eddys, like our Attack Whitewater Kayak. Unfortunately kayaks with very rounded hulls will not paddle very straight on flat water.
I had a trip back to the UK that delayed things.
Really quick and easy to get ready and fast on the water.
I haven’t fitted the rudder yet but will try soon.
We have entered the bridge to beach paddle in Feb so a challenge lies ahead.
Photos of the canoe were taken on the beach at the Q station, our first expedition.
Thanks again for your help and efficiency!“
