Now with a tougher, nitrilon hull! An environmentally-friendly, 3PSI, lightweight single kayak - only 25 lbs!
The 10 foot 4 inch Innova Swing 1 N inflatable kayak offers reliable performance on flatwater and slow-moving rivers.
The Innova Swing 1 N uses an efficient "tubeless" system which is inherently lighter and inflates to higher pressures of 3 PSI. The higher pressure means that the Swing 1 N is stiffer in rough water and has better paddling performance, while a removable tracking fin keeps the kayak "on course". It's perfect for recreational touring, great for exploring slow-moving rivers, paddling along ocean shorelines, or mild whitewater/surf.
The newly updated Innova Swing 1 N is now constructed from two materials for the hull and upper deck. The upper deck comprises a PES fabric with a PUR coating, while the hull is Nitrilon. Nitrilon is a high-strength PES fabric that is single coated with an outside synthetic rubber coating and an inner natural rubber-blend coating to increase air retention. Nitrilon is the same material used in the traditional Innova Sunny, Helios and Safari models. A specialized manufacturing process vulcanizes the natural rubber compound on the interior of the fabric, resulting in a durable construction that tolerates high interior pressure, improving longevity as well as making the kayaks more rigid, water and abrasion resistant, without substantially increasing the kayak weight. The main chambers can be inflated to 3 PSI, translating into a stiff inflatable boat that handles responsively. Nitrilon has minimal PVC content, making it more environmentally friendly than standard inflatables using PVC bladders - there is no out-gassing. It also stores compactly when deflated and folded.
The air-holding seams are vulcanized and permanently bonded (similar to the way in which tires are vulcanized); each chamber is individually tested at the factory for air retention. It's PVC-free, making it environmentally friendly - no outgassing!
The Innova Swing 1 N kayak deck sheds water quickly. The deck support system uses aluminum arches fore and aft of the cockpit opening. These arches are set crosswise and provide deck shape and structure. The arches contribute to the stiffness of the Swing for paddling in rough water. These arches can be removed easily for a compact folded package, or left in the kayak for a slightly larger folded size.
There's plenty of room for storage or camping gear - bow and stern spray decks offer spray protection and provide space for gear stored underneath. The decks have fore-and-aft zippers for ease of gear access and cleaning the boat. Planning a camping trip? Bungee deck rigging is perfect for storing extra gear within easy reach.
The Innova Swing 1 N features three separate air chambers for safety. The valves are high-quality “bayonet” style units set flush with the fabric surface.
