Features

Inflation recommendations & precautions
Inflate the floor first, then one of the side tubes, then the second one to 50%. Check the overall chamber positioning. Then inflate to 100% without exceeding 0.1 bar (1.5 psi). DO NOT OVERINFLATE! Fully close all of the valves. Install the 3 keels, unless using on a river containing little water. In the event of EXTREME HEAT, slightly deflate the kayak out of the water to avoid overinflation, which could damage the kayak. Do not leave inflated in direct sunlight: risk of overinflation.
Maintenance advice
In the event of damage to one of the side chambers, open the side tube lengthways using the zip and remove the chamber. The floor can be uncovered by opening the Velcro fastenings. Example 1: the hole is in the side tube; you can use the repair kit to stick on a patch. Example 2: the hole is located along a seam; visit the workshop of a DECATHLON store to repair or exchange the bladder.
Easy to disassemble and fold
New carry bag, backpack style for short distances. Easy clip fins. Deflate the kayak by opening the 3 "Boston" valves. Fold the lateral tubes down onto the floor. Roll, starting from the opposite side to the valves to remove the air. Place the rolled-up kayak into the main compartment of the bag. Close the zip and tighten using the compression strap.
Seat comfort
The seats are high, providing increased comfort for adults in the paddling position. The seats are to be placed according to the number of persons on board, just behind of the markings printed on the floor. On the "2" markings (which therefore remain visible) when there are 2 persons on board. On the "1" marking when there is only one person on board. Ensure that you balance your load to optimise kayak performance.
Glide performance
Patented bow shape: the front and back ends provide good glide. The V-shaped front of the kayak enables smooth entry into the water.

    Fantastic

    I live in a first floor flat and have no-where to store a rigid kayak, so I looked at inflatable alternatives. I found this one after visiting my local Decathlon store and couldn't believe the great quality for the price. I didn't hesitate and bought one straight away. It is great that I don't need a roof rack on my car and I can store it in my bedroom cupboard . It only takes about 10 minutes to inflate with the Itiwit double action pump. I am a big man and had trouble finding a kayak that would take my weight (117kg) but this does the job brilliantly, even after I have loaded it with a couple of dry bags full of spare clothing etc. I definitely recommend this kayak, especially if you are a beginner like me and don't want to spend a fortune. Also for a beginner, it is very stable and track well with the included fins on the bottom. Decathlon also provide a great range of spares for the kayak, I have now got spare fins and Boston valves because these can get lost if you're as clumsy as me :-)

    Great little boat!

    Bought this in the spring and I've taken it out about a dozen times. Mostly short river trips, a few times off a beach and a few times for day trips. Great boat, no problems at all and I would definitely recommend it!!

    Here's some more details...

    I chose it because the pack-away aspect means I can take it on the bus or in a friend's car, since I don't own a car of my own.

    Carrying the rucksack: it's pretty heavy but once it's on your back it's ok. I and a couple of friends of all genders have carried it 5-10 mins just fine, longest I've carried it is about 20 mins and that was about my limit. We're all prob average fitness.

    Inflation/deflating: super quick and easy. 5-10 mins tops. Took me a few tries to figure out exactly how to fold it up but there's a technique, follow the directions in the book and it's really easy.

    Experience on the water: the boat is significantly more stable than your average hard shell kayak, a bit more like a canoe, which means it's great for taking out inexperienced or nervous friends with you. With the skegs on the bottom it tracks just fine, I'm told that without them the tracking is a bit worse. Since it's inflatable I'm a bit more careful about things like rocks, hidden objects underwater etc than I would be with a hard shell kayak. But it's pretty sturdy to be honest and I've banged into a couple of underwater trees and scraped it along the sides of locks and things with no problems. The material is very tough. You can't seal launch or drag it along the ground but that's fine for me. Very easy to board as it's so stable on the water.

    Comfort: it's a decent size for two people. I'm 5"10' and mostly take out shorter friends, no problems with leg room and you can fit a day trip's worth of gear into the back and under your legs. Have put a friend who is 6" in it with somebody else and she was fine for leg room. You can also turn the boat into a single really easily. The back support is decent and is adjustable and you can easily find a comfortable paddling position. If you are used to a closed hard shell kayak, the only thing is you don't feel quite as "locked in" to the boat as you would in one of those. Control is fine on a normal river or calm ocean but I wouldn't feel in control doing white water or anything. I tried out a deep water re-entry last time I had it on the ocean and it was very doable for somebody with average upper body strength.

    Other gear: I bought Itiwit buoyancy aids and the pump and a 230cm split paddle. The BAs and pump are fine, the paddle's generally good but it's a bit short if you're the person in the back. So for a second paddle I bought a 240cm one online. You need a paddle with longer reach than in a hard shell boat because the inflatable boat is slightly bulkier.

    Overall the paddling experience is very good, I've had some great times with this boat!!

    Great product, Great service

    My first point would be to say how excellent the service was I received at the Chelmsford store. The sales assistant went out of his way to help resolve an issue with a gift voucher I had.
    I have only used the kayak once so far, on a tidal river. It was great fun! Easy to inflate and surprising rigid and stable on the water, especially given the low pressure it is inflated to. It was quick to deflate when I'd finished with it. It feels good quality for the price and I'm looking forward to using it a lot more.
    It did take a while to dry out properly after I'd given it a good wash after use. I think one small improvement could be made to the paddles, and that would be a larger disc on the paddle shaft as you do get some water running down the paddle into the boat. This could be my dodgy technique though :) Overall I'm very happy with my purchase.
