Who is the AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayak For?
The most common scenario is a couple with a caravan, but I also sell the AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayak to:
- People wanting to take their dog(s) kayaking
- Apartment dwellers (or anyone who doesn’t want to bother with the hassle, expense and heavy lifting of roofracks)
- Adventurous expeditioners
Paddle the AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayak Solo or Tandem:
Unlike most tandem kayaks, the AdvancedFrame Convertible 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 4.54m, the AdvancedFrame Convertible 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.
This is our best-selling Advanced Elements Kayak!
With the high back seat supporting your back and the soft inflatable floor under your bum, you can paddle for hours.
The AdvancedFrame Convertible kayak 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
Durable - Quality Design and Materials
Advanced Elements have designed the AdvancedFrame Convertible kayak to be durable and safe.
With multiple air chambers, multiple layers covering the main chambers and the extra-tough PVC tarpaulin on the hull, you don’t really have to worry about punctures.
Quick and Easy to Set-up and Pack Away

Packed bag dimensions: 91cm x 53cm x 28cm
What type of conditions is the AdvancedFrame kayak suitable for?
The AdvancedFrame 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.
