The Advanced Elements AE1007-R AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak was manufactured by Advanced Elements for heavy duty use, and relies on innovative designs to make it more versatile than any other 15 ft kayak out there yet still be a joy to use. The question though is whether any of this is true or not.
The Advanced Elements AE1007-R Inflatable Kayak has many features built in to improve tracking.
This kayak is named Convertible and it’s an apt one since you can paddle with a friend or on your own with ease. The Convertible has optional double or single decks, and it’s this feature that you can use to turn the Convertible into a solo or tandem kayak in seconds, whereas in other kayaks it takes forever, if you can do it at all. Emotion has also taken tracking into consideration, and the stern and aluminum ribs go a long way towards enhancing that. Also, the Convertible does put emphasis on puncture resistance as it comes with three layers, while other kayaks only come with one.
The Advanced Elements AE1007-R Kayak was designed with versatility in mind.
If there’s a drawback to the Convertible though, is that it doesn’t come with any frame deck, pump, paddles or other accessories. While that may inconvenience some, it’s a blessing for others, because if you’re not going to use those accessories there’s no reason to pay for them. Another advantage of the Convertible is that it is pre-assembled, so all you need to do is unfold the unit and then inflate the seats. Once you’re done attaching them to the kayak, it is set. The seats by the way, are adjustable and comfortable so you can kayak for hours on end. Because this is built for heavy duty use, you can use it on rivers and lakes confidently. The paddles can be faster but there’re all right and the tracks are straight on.
Summary: Should you buy the Advanced Elements AE1007-R AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak?
It’s true the Convertible is more expensive than other kayaks, and it doesn’t come with the accessories that others have. Still, this is a good buy for several reasons, the first being it’s built to last, and tracking is excellent. With this you don’t have to worry about being turned over and throw in the water. This is a well built kayak, and one that you will be able to use for a long time.
