AirFusion Elite Inflatable Kayak


Only 2 left in stock

So you’re looking for a kayak that packs up into a bag, but you want the performance of a sleek hard shell?

Yes, you CAN have it all. The AirFusion Elite Inflatable Kayak is for the more serious kayakers who really want to move, but don’t want the weight and inconvenience of a long and heavy hard-shell kayak.

The AirFusion Elite kayak is narrow and has a rounded hull, which means you can use proper paddling technique to get a good workout and really zoom through the water.

AirFusion Elite Inflatable Kayak

I had a couple of problems with my kayak initially, but thanks to Emily these have been resolved and I can go out and enjoy my Airfusion Elite Kayak - it is wonderful! It is taking me less time to inflate the kayak and get it on the water every time I go for a paddle. Most of my preparation time is taken up answering questions from inquisitive passersby, it is an eye catcher! On the water it tracks well even in windy fairly rough conditions. I feel totally confident in the construction of the kayak, as well as the service provided by Emily.

AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak Bag AE1007
  • Extremely lightweight for a high performance kayak at only 14.5kg – this is significantly lighter than an equivalent hard shell kayak, allowing you to carry the kayak easily
  • Compared to other skin-on-frame kayaks, the design uses high pressure air chambers to provide rigidity, reducing the number frame parts for dramatically faster set-up time

AirFusion Elite Inflatable Kayak AE1041 Yellow Advanced Elements AE1041-Y

The AirFusion Elite is not as stable as our other inflatable kayaks, but recreational paddlers with a little bit of experience will get the hang of it pretty quickly (I am a recreational kayaker and I love paddling the AirFusion Elite).

The AirFusion Elite Inflatable Kayak is fine for class 1 and 2 rivers, however it is designed to paddle in a straight line, and therefore not recommended for rivers above class 2. It is designed for day touring and expeditions, for flat or open (coastal) water.


  • Unique Hybrid Aluminum Frame and High Pressure Air Chamber Design from Advanced Elements
  • Inflatable coaming for attaching a spray skirt
  • Roll-top rear storage access hatch
  • Bungee deck lacing
  • Moulded rubber handles
  • Optional fixed skeg
  • D-ring tie down

Included Accessories:

  • Carrying Duffel Bag
  • Folding Seat
  • Repair Kit
  • Owner’s Manual
