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.

    Einzigartiges 2er Luft-Tourenkajak

    Wir haben das einer und zweier Strenfit X500. Das zweier ist deutlich stabiler (auch wenn wir mit den 1er im Gegensatz zu andern Bewertern sehr gut klar kommen und seine Agilität mögen) und ein versehentliches Kenntern ist praktisch ausgeschlossen.

    - sieht einfach toll aus
    - sehr schnell und einfach aufzubauen
    - Gute Geschwindigkeit (7+ km/h Schnitt zu zweit)
    - Sehr gute Transporttasche mit integrierten Rädern, aber nicht tauglich für die Mitführung im Kajak
    - Wenn man sparsam ist kann man auch mehrtägige Touren machen
    - Gut zu fahren auf Seen und mittleren/grossen Flüssen
    - Süllrand ist etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig (fummelig), funktioniert aber gut und ist besser als die Systeme mit einem Schlauch
    - Ist für Umtragungen gut auf einem Wagen (z.B. Ekla Beach-Rolly) zu transportieren (auch im ÖV, ohne Tasche)
    - Gurte für die Gepäckbefestigung
    - Fussrasten funktonieren gut
    - Decklayout mit Gummizügen

    - Die Tasche ist toll designed, aber nicht geeignet für OneWay, da man sie nicht genügend zusammenlegen und transportieren kann
    - Gewicht (Webseite 24 kg, auf Tasche stehe 26 kg, gewogen habe ich 30 kg)

    Steuer kann man keines installieren, aber das haben wir bisher trotz der Länge des Boots nicht vermisst
