We recently previewed Advanced Elements’ new Attack Inflatable Kayak, a whitewater-specific self-bailer. The new model is scheduled to arrive in early 2012.
Rated through Class III, the AE1050 Attack weighs in at 34lbs. Measurements are 9’6″ in length, a width of 35 inches and a max payload of 200lbs. Folded size is 34x19x9 inches. The Attack features a tough 840 denier PVC tarpaulin smooth skin with a tube diameter of 9.5 inches and a rocker of 12 inches (bow/stern rise) for quick turns. PVC bladders are independent of the cover, giving it a durable, double layer thickness.
The Attack Inflatable Kayak will come with carrying case, thigh straps, repair kit, folding seat and instruction manual. MSRP $639.99.
Advanced Elements will also be offering the Attack 215cm 2-pc breakdown paddle, an ultra-light and extremely rigid full-carbon fiber paddle with asymmetrical blade. MSRP $249.99
For more details, stay tuned and we’ll let you know when they arrive in January 2012. Further details will also be available on the website at http://www.airkayaks.com/products/Advanced-Elements-Attack-Whitewater-Inflatable-Kayak-%252d-AE1050.html
