Who is the AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Kayak for?

  • Kayak campers / expeditioners who want to load up with gear
  • Tall people (6’2″ or above) who need some leg room
  • Casual paddlers who want speed AND comfort
  • Suitable for beginners
"I have had the kayak out on beautiful Port Stephens waters a couple of times now and it is everything I hoped it would be. Being a novice I find the craft to be very stable allowing me to concentrate on the correct paddling style. The kayak fits my 6 foot 3 inch frame perfectly and its ease of setup and take down makes this a winner for my needs."
Stuart

Love to go Fast?

At nearly 4m long, the Expedition Elite kayak is FAST.

The drop-stitch floor helps you glide smoothly through the water.

The patented AdvancedFrame design means no waggling when you paddle.

The built-in fin helps you paddle straight.

Huge Capacity for Kayak Expeditions

A whopping 204kg capacity means you can load this kayak up with gear for even the most extreme kayak expedition.

There are D-rings and bungee lacing on the large front deck for securing gear.

There is a roll-top hatch behind the seat for quick access to gear stored under the deck.

There are d-rings on the rear deck for even more gear!

Comfortable for Long Paddling Trips (and Long Legs)

  • Your back is supported by the inflatable lumbar so you are comfortable all day
  • Adjustable foot brace for comfort and to assist paddling technique
  • Plenty of leg room for tall people
  • The Advancedframe Expedition Elite kayak has a low centre of gravity and a flat hull. This gives you effortless stability so you can save your strength on those long trips.
  • Stay dry in open ocean with the inflatable coaming and optional spray skirt

Durable and Reliable

Don’t take my word for it!

This review from Geoff Wilson of 5th Element Expeditions shows just how tough the AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite kayak is, even in the most rugged of terrain.

Backed by a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty from Advanced Elements.

 

Multi-layer material design for protection of the inner tubes – there is very little risk of puncture.

Durable triple layer PVC tarpaulin hull also means you don’t have to worry about damage on rocks.

The dual main air chambers are great for safety, because if one chamber of the inner tube fails, the other will still function.

Portable and Convenient

Packs up into a bag (with backpack straps) about the size of a suitcase for easy storage and transport – planes, trains and automobiles, the world is your oyster!

Set-up Instructions for the AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Kayak

  • Comes pre-assembled – no need to set up, just inflate and go
  • The Advanced Elements spring valves allow large amounts of air to flow one way – quick and easy inflation and deflation

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.
