An innovation, and a patent pending!
A high-performance 2-seater inflatable kayak that you can take everywhere with your trolley bag, in short:Freedom!Based on the X500 1-seater kayak, we decided to develop a 2-seater kayak.5 prototypes were required.The main challenge:to add rigidity, performance to an inflatable 2-seater kayak.And so we have patented the unique cutting and assembly of the materials used.
Why a rigid inflatable kayak?
"We listened to the kayakers:""I would like to share kayaking with someone else" "I want a 2-seater inflatable kayak that has the same performance as a rigid kayak"",
Why the name "Kayak X500 DropStitch"?
""Dropstitch"" is a material.Two layers of PVC are connected by thousands of nylon threads.When inflated to high pressure, these threads tighten and create a rigid volume, which prevents the kayak from loosing its shape. This is what makes our inflatable kayak extremely rigid but easy to store in a backpack once deflated."
How to inflate and mount the kayak?
1. Inflate the main chamber (floor), then the intermediate chambers (walls), followed by the small chambers (arches).All the volumes are inflated to 15 PSI max (1.03 bar). 2. You can insert the foot-rests on the flexible guides, push them inside the kayak, and adjust to your leg length with the buckle. 3. Position the seats by fitting them onto the shims provided. 4. Position the backrests under the coaming. We recommend the HP Itiwit twin-action hand pump (8387655), not supplied.
How to disassemble and deflate the kayak?
"You'll see it's quite simple! 1.Make sure the folding surface is clean. 2.Remove the seats. 3.Remove the foot rests 4.Deflate the kayak by removing the cap and pressing the valve.(Leave the valve in the open position for air to escape) 5.Tuck in the hatch and start folding lengthways."
How to fold it up to put it in the bag?
"1.We recommend placing the canvas of the bridge inside the fold. 2.Fold the keel over its entire length.This fold ensures that the width of the kayak is the same as that of the bag. 3.To fold your kayak, start with the front tip then fold at the first dashes.Repeat the operation 4 times such that the kayak folds like a snail 4.Strap up the kayak - strapping it well will make it easier to fit in the bag.
What if the kayak is pierced?
"It would take something sharp to make that happen.If so, the kayak is composed of 6 independent "air chambers".1 or 2 of punctures?The kayak floats enough to make it back to the shore safely. To preserve the life expectancy of your kayak, we advise you to avoid contact with oyster shells and sharp reefs."
The team offers their tips for your comfort ...
"Olivier takes care of the stock at Itiwit.Like the whole team, he is passionate about kayaking.His advice:""To make the most of it, really take the time to sit in the middle to balance yourself, to adjust your foot rests.Once you are comfortable, off you go."" Nico is a product engineer, his thing is to always leave with dry clothes in a small waterproof bag.You can place it in the front of the kayak for easy access."
What does the Kayak bag contain?
"The kit comprises: - the trolley bag - the kayak - two seats - four foot rests - a repair kit It does not contain spray decks.The kayak is compatible with the Itiwit spray deck code:8543915."
Directions for use.
We recommend that you practice with a buoyancy vest.

    Très bon kayak biplace,…

    Très bon kayak biplace, c'est notre 3ème kayak (Mercury P65, Calypso Polyform. On cherchait un kayak facilement transportable pour emmener en vacances, le gonflage est rapide.
    Il a bonne glisse, grâce à sa bonne rigidité et sa largeur raisonnable.(on n' a pas l’impression d'être dans un kayak gonflable).
    la stabilité est suffisante pour se sentir en sécurité, et la coque en V
    permet de garder le kayak vivant : il ne colle pas à l'eau comme les modèles à fond plat.
    Les assises sont confortables, avec une bonne ergonomie du dossier.
    De plus le pont rigide en haute pression permet d'embarquer notre petit chien entre nous deux.
    Même s'il se dirige bien, une option gouvernail serait parfaite.

    Très bon produit, bonne finition!

    Bonjour à tous,

    (Pour info, nous sommes des amateurs et ne pratiquons pas régulièrement la kayak, mais faisons pas mal de sport. Un ami plus expérimenté a fait le premier test avec nous, et est d'accord avec tous les éléments ci-dessous)

    Le produit est de très bonne qualité. Lors de sa réception, le produit n'était pas endommagé dû à un pliage de longue durée comme je l'avais vu écrit dans des commentaires pour la version 1 place. Le temps de montage est conforme au indications données dans la fiche technique (6-8 min). Lorsque le bateau est monté, il est assez rigide. Il n'est toutefois pas aussi rigide qu'un bateau non gonflable, mais cela ne semblait pas gênant (à confirmer par la suite). Les compartiments pour les pieds sont assez long. Aucun problème de ce côté (je mesure 1m81). La hauteur des compartiments ne permet pas d'avoir les pieds à la verticale (sans chaussure). Pour autant, cela ne m'a pas du tout gêné (nous sommes resté 1h30 dans le bateau). Le réglage des cales est vraiment super et permet un réglage précis.

    La jupe s'assemble bien avec le bateau bien que que le support de jupe soit un flexible. Cela ne nous a pas posé de problème. L'assise est de très bonne qualité.

    Pour les questions de stabilité, aucun reproche malgré les commentaires que j'ai pu lire pour le modèle 1 place. Néanmoins, il est vrai qu'il n'y pas de compartiments gonflages pour éviter de se retourner comme on peut les retrouver sur d'autres modèles.

    Le démontage est assez simple. Il faut laisser les valves en position ouverte, et plier le bateau (aucune difficulté). Attention à ne pas oublier une serviette ou autre pour sécher le bateau avant pliage si vous devez mettre le sac dans votre voiture après utilisation.

    Pour ce qui est du sac, celui ci-est assez imposant. Je pense qu'il manque quelques poignées pour pouvoir prendre le sac sur les cotés lors des manipulations. Les roues sont de bonne qualité. Le sac reste très flexible se qui permet de l'enrouler et de le prendre avec soi sur le bateau.

    Très bon produit, je recommande!
    Rémi.
