- The best tracking

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite is Easy to Paddle Straight
Glide straight with the patented AdvancedFrame design – no waggling when you paddle.
The Built in fin is another feature to help you paddle straight.
Drop-Stitch Performance Enhancement
Paddle the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Solo or Tandem:
Unlike most tandem kayaks, the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak has plenty of leg room for BOTH paddlers, which means less arguments!
Most kayaks over 4m are classed as 3-seaters, but Advanced Elements have kept this one as a spacious tandem kayak.
The solo seating position means you are perfectly balanced in the kayak – no drag and no wag.
Changing between tandem and solo is simply a matter of where you clip the seats in – super easy!
At 4.6m, the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite is one of the longest, and therefore fastest inflatable kayaks on the market.
It also has a capacity of 249kg, so you can really load it up with gear.
With the inflatable lumbar cushion in the seat supporting your back, you can paddle for hours.
The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite has a low centre of gravity and a flat hull for effortless stability. This saves your strength and allows you to relax and enjoy the ride.
Versatile – Quickly Converts for Open Ocean

What conditions is the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak suitable for?
The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak is designed to be a day touring type boat, for flat or open water. The bow and stern have a rigid semi-frame that gives it a hard edge. This greatly improves the tracking over traditional inflatables. The AdvancedFrame is fine for class 1 and 2 rivers, and durable enough for class 3, however it is really designed to paddle in a straight line, and therefore not recommended for rivers above class 3. When choosing a kayak for class 3 whitewater or greater, you really want a boat with a very rounded hull that will not grip on to the current, especially in eddys, like our Attack Whitewater Kayak. Unfortunately kayaks with very rounded hulls will not paddle very straight on flat water.
