The perfect backpacking inflatable kayak.
Best choice for go light exploration! With a packed size of only 21” x 14” x 7” and weighing only 20 lbs., Twist 1 easily fits into a backpack or duffel, into an overhead baggage compartment, or onto a closet shelf. Made in Europe to high quality standards and tested before packing. Goes from the bag to water in less than 7 minutes. Perfect for sheltered ponds, rivers, and backcountry access. Inflatable seat and foot brace are fully adjustable for extra comfort. Specially contoured hull is stable, shaped for speed, and tracks well with removable skeg. Fore and aft floor tubing minimizes flex for additional performance. Factory-made Nitrilon material is eco-friendly and highly resistant to abrasion or puncture. Included are bow and stern grab loops, bungee gear storage area, removable tracking fin, built-in pressure relief valve, repair kit, sponge, and nylon storage bag. Twist 1 measures 8’8” length, 2’7” beam, capacity 220 lbs.
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. Light Nitrilon is PVC-free, making it more environmentally friendly than standard inflatables using PVC bladders - there is no out-gassing. It also stores compactly when deflated and folded.
New features also include improved seating with a removable, inflatable seat and beefed up foot brace. The new seating arrangement makes it easier to reposition the paddling position, optimizing paddling performance and comfort.
High-quality military-style valves are used in the main chambers, while gear bungees allow you to stash accessories on-board.
It's a great choice for recreational paddling on calm to slow-moving waters, and perfect for backpacking, RVs and travel.
