Beginning well over a decade ago with the introduction of the world’s first truly Hybrid Inflatable Kayak, the AdvancedFrame®; we have developed and patented multiple designs that have evolved the way that inflatable kayaks and SUP’s perform on the water. We see inflatable kayak and SUP design as a craft and we pride ourselves in our consistent innovation, refinement, and evolution of our well thought-out designs. Our line of kayaks and paddleboards feature many innovations that deliver the best in durability, portability, and performance.
Our AdvancedFrame® and StraitEdge™ line of kayaks incorporate our patented Aluminum Rib Frame Technology in the bow and stern. This provides increased paddling and tracking performance unlike any other inflatable kayak. The bow slices through the water, while the stern acts like a skeg, providing trackability that rivals hard-shell kayaks.
Advanced Elements kayaks are built using multi-layer construction, to deliver unsurpassed durability, and multiple air chambers for optimum safety and rigidity. Our unique designs, combined with the best materials, offer high performance in a portable package.
Our PVC Tarpaulin Hull Material features a Polyester fabric sandwiched by layers of vinyl which creates a durable and strong outer cover.
Unlike many inflatable kayaks, in which the side wall of the main chamber is in-fact the inflation chamber itself, our kayaks are developed with multiple layers of material for maximum durability. The main inflation chambers are encased in their own outer tube cover and, in many of our models, the encased inflation chambers are then protected by the outer shell of the kayak body offering the best in protection against the elements.
Our unique air chamber design provides optimum safety while out on the water. We divide the main inflation chamber into two separate air chambers that encompass the entire kayak so that, if one chamber were to become compromised, the kayak has a second chamber fully encompassing the boat.
All of our kayaks come from our factory pre-assembled and use our proprietary Spring Valve™ and Twistlok™ Valve for fast and easy inflation. Simply unfold, inflate, and hit the water!
THE EVOLUTION OF INFLATABLE SUPs™
Spearheading the evolution of inflatable SUP’s, Advanced Elements has developed a unique line of Inflatable Stand-Up Paddleboards to meet a variety of stand-up paddler’s needs. Creating such innovative designs as the Fishbone™ SUP, which has a patented displacement hull design; each SUP in the line has many distinctive features and uses.Whether you are practicing yoga on the Lotus YSUP™, traveling the world with your family on the Hula™ 11 and 8 SUP’s, or racing to the finish line on the Fishbone™, you will appreciate the portability and durability of our SUP’s.
Utilizing Drop-stitch technology and multi-layer material construction, for the best in rigidity and durability, we have also created such innovative designs as the Fishbone™ SUP which has a patented displacement hulldesign that provides optimal speed and tracking performance.
Patented Displacement Hull Design
Our patented Displacement Hull Design utilizes an injection molded nose cap to push water aside and cut through the water with very little effort. This allows the
Fishbone™ EX to track more smoothly and effortlessly through the water.
