Ultra-light and ultra-fast, the new AdvancedFrame Ultralite kayak is ultra-awesome!
A high performance inflatable kayak that weighs in at only 8kg – amazing!
As well as paddling straight and fast, the AdvancedFrame Ultralite Kayak is comfortable, quick to set up, compact and durable.
It’s easy to set up. It’s really really stable and tracks well. Great streamlined design and very bright and easily seen by other water craft including powered. I’m very disabled with ME/CFS so fatigue and other physical impairments make doing any activity difficult. This makes it much easier and if you have a fatigue- based disease or ongoing fatigue of any sort I can also recomment getting an electric pump to conserve your energy to enjoy being out on the water...
I know I left it a bit late in life to get into kayaking. Better late than never. For the first half of this year I spent most of my time at Tweed Heads helping out my sister in law, who was diagnosed with cancer. She lived across the road from the Tweed River, so it was ideal for me to go out and buy an inexpensive inflatable kayak with which I had lots of early morning paddles. Until a leak developed in a faulty seam. I took the faulty product back and replaced it with a hard shell kayak and got strap on soft roof racks to get it home to my sister in law�s unit. This served me well for the time I remained, but I had no intention of carrying it back to Sydney on my car roof. Before we left Tweed Heads I was so keen to continue with the kayaking that I researched and went out and bought an AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak. When I easily got this home I had many great paddles on the Nepean River near Camden, but also occasionally near Menangle. This venue involves going down and up a fairly steep bank. For a 78 year old with heart problems the return journey up the bank with 11Kgs on my shoulder was a bit daunting. So I got my AdvancedFrame Ultralite Kayak. Both kayaks are comfortable and a delight to paddle. I can wholeheartedly recommend either of these.
The AdvancedFrame Ultralite Kayak is ideal for paddlers who don’t like lifting heavy stuff.
It is VERY stable, making it suitable for beginners.
It is NOT suitable for:
With the AdvancedFrame Ultralite Kayak, you don’t have to compromise!
You get an ultra-lightweight kayak that is excellent on the water.
Weighs only 8kg – although it’s not the lightest kayak on the market, the AdvancedFrame Ultralite kayak is NOT a packraft and it is NOT a pool toy.
The AdvancedFrame Ultralite Kayak is a REAL kayak, with the patented AdvancedFrame design from Advanced Elements.
There is also a built-in fin on the hull.
This baby tracks straight and is a delight to paddle. And weighs about the same as a baby!
I decided to try this and it’s great!
It’s lightweight so I can carry it myself and it’s simple to assemble/inflate by myself.
Once in the water, it tracks well and feels like a hardbody.
Packs away into a duffel bag the size of a small suitcase (79 x 46 x 15 cm).
Detachable shoulder straps are included so you can carry it like a backpack.
There’s nothing worse than a hard seat giving you a numb bum and an aching lower back from lack of support.
Whether you are jumping in the AdvancedFrame Ultralite kayak for half an hour or the whole day, you want to be comfortable and supported.
Advanced Elements always take care to design extremely durable, puncture-resistant craft.
I have been paddling the AdvancedFrame range of inflatable kayaks for over a decade now, and I have never had to do a repair.
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.
