As mentioned in prior posts, Advanced Elements of Benicia, California, unveiled two 2015 limited edition inflatable kayak models at last summer’s Outdoor Retailer Show.
The new 10.5 ft limited edition AE1012-LTD AdvancedFrame LTD touring kayak is in transit and scheduled to be available May 15th.
The AdvancedFrame LTD features a major color redesign, as well as some updated design changes. Now in a Hi-Vis lime green with yellow graphics, the AdvancedFrame LTD sports a sleek silhouette with improved seating. A high-backed, rigid seat for added comfort and support is standard in the limited edition model.
Velcro paddle holders are now included as well as new d-rings, making it easier to attach gear.
An integrated “pressure relief valve” ensures the floor is not over-inflated. Set at 1 PSI, the relief valve releases enough air to maintain 1 PSI when pumping it up, or if left in the hot sun.
Street price is $499. For more details or to purchase, visit the AdvancedFrame LTD product page at AirKayaks.com
The larger Expedition LTD – a 13 foot touring model selling for $679 – is currently available. For more info see the Expedition LTD product page at AirKayaks.com. You can also see our Detailed Writeup with Photos on the Expedition LTD from Advanced Elements.
