Drop-Stitch Performance Enhancement

Main DS Floor Illustration e1515978710368

The Drop-Stitch floor comes as standard with the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite.

It makes the kayak go faster and straighter, and is also extremely durable – great for dogs or fishing.

Fast

advancedframe convertible expedition kayaking small

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.

Paddle the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Solo or Tandem:

advancedframe convertible inflatable kayaks leg room

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!

Versatile – Quickly Converts for Open Ocean

The optional Advanced Elements Double Deck Conversion and Single Deck Conversion allow you to stay dry with the inflatable coaming and optional skirt.

The spray skirt is great news for those adventurous souls who want to paddle the open ocean.

It is also a great accessory for paddling in winter.

“Hi Emily! Just to say that we got out in the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak now and enjoying it a lot. I had a trip back to the UK that delayed things. Really quick and easy to get ready and fast on the water. I haven’t fitted the rudder yet but will try soon. We have entered the bridge to beach paddle in Feb so a challenge lies ahead. Photos of the canoe were taken on the beach at the Q station, our first expedition. Thanks again for your help and efficiency!“

Comfortable

cruising in comfort in the advancedframe convertible inflatable kayak 1

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.

Quality Design & Manufacturing

Advanced Elements have designed the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite to be wonderfully 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.

1 year manufacturer’s warranty from Advanced Elements.

MultiLayer Construction 1

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

PVC Tarpaulin Illustration 1

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

MultiChamber Construction 2

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

Performance

Wowser fast!

AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak - from Lake Powell to Alaska

The high-pressure drop-stitch floor (included) gives you excellent rigidity and a very smooth hull bottom, so you glide through the water gracefully.

RibFrame Design e1515979189793

The built-in fin and the awesome AdvancedFrame hull design give you a wonderful paddling experience.

With 2 people paddling in tandem, it really zooms!

Yes!

The tracking is excellent.

The high-pressure drop-stitch floor plays a big part in this. The enhanced rigidity helps the kayak glide through the water smoothly.

ds drop stitch floor advancedframe inflatable kayak advanced elements 590 1024x590 1

The aluminium ribs in the bow and stern stop the kayak from waggling and the fin helps it glide straight.

Not much.

All kayaks are wind affected to some degree.

You can generally predict how wind affected it’s going to be based on the ratio of kayak above the waterline to kayak below the waterline.

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite is a sit-in kayak, so it sits quite low in the water, especially compare to other inflatables, so it performs quite well in wind.

advancedframe convertible elite kayak david testimonial

Comfort

The seat (included) has a stiff, high back, which gives you excellent support, IF you get the angle right.

High Back Kayak Seat in the Advanced Elements Kayaks

The seat includes an inflatable cushion for extra lumbar support – you can blow it up as you are paddling via a tube with a mouth piece.

AdvancedFrame lumbar seat high back support AE2013 1

You can purchase the optional inflatable foot brace for the front paddler, which adds to your comfort by supporting your lower back as you paddle.

Inflatable Foot Brace bb There is a foot brace for the rear paddler included. Note that this works by having the brace push up against the seat back of the front paddler. You will need to adjust the seat straps to get yourselves in the right position for this to work.

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak comes with a foot brace for the rear paddler, and you can buy the inflatable foot brace for the front paddler. A lot of paddlers swear by foot braces for encouraging good paddling technique and for supporting the lower back.

If you want to paddle it solo and you want foot support, you will need to purchase the Adjustable Foot Pegs.

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak has very good back support – the seat back is high and stiff with adjustable straps to get the angle right. It also includes inflatable lumbar support.

What is the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak good for?

Yes!

kayaking with dog tandem kayak advancedframe convertible

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak is ideal for taking dogs.

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak is very spacious and has an open cockpit, which means customers often fit two people and two dogs in.

The drop-stitch floor inside the kayak is super tough, you do not need any reinforcement.

The wide flat hull means the kayak is very stable so you won’t all go over board if your dog gets excited and makes a sudden move (not that they ever do that …).

advancedframe convertible elite kayak rob testimonial

Yes.

The wide flat hull means the kayak is very stable so you can focus on fishing and relaxing.

This video is from Life Below Zero who use the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak to make this fishing video:

The rip-stop polyester material is extremely durable, give you the confidence that neither fish nor fishing gear will cause a puncture.

Accessory Frame System for Kayaks e1487043585802

***NOTE – to install the accessory frame on the AdvancedFrame Convertible elite kayak, you have to cut holes in the deck and inner tube covers.

You can even put on a propeller – the ePropulsion Vaquita.

Yes.

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak is great for taking kids!

Kayaking at Golden Beach, Caloundra

It’s super-stable, so the kids can have a nap and muck around without tipping it over.

It’s very big and has a wide-open cockpit, so there’s heaps of space.

Yes, it’s a great choice for at tender.

advancedframe convertible elite kayak rick testimonial

It’s got the high-pressure drop-stitch floor which makes it easy to step into and out of.

The wide-open cockpit also makes it easy to step in and out of.

There is a huge amount of deck space and capacity (250kg) for gear if you are using it to transport your stuff to and from shore.

**Caution – do not leave the kayak inflated on the deck of the boat. The heat will cause the pressure to rise and you could damage the kayak.

It’s fast and comfortable enough for anything from 1 hour to a full-day trip.

It’s even great for multi-day expeditions!

advancedframe convertible inflatable kayak greg testimonial

Yes!

AE1007 E InUse2 2

The AdvancedFrame design helps it cut through chop very well, and you can use the Double Deck Conversion or the Single Deck Conversion to put on a spray skirt to keep out the waves.

single deck double deck spray skirt

No.

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak is fine for class 1 and 2 whitewater, however it is really designed to paddle in a straight line, and therefore not recommended for rivers above class 2.

Who is the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak good for?

Yes, it is definitely suitable for beginners. I should note, however, that generally speaking, solo kayaks are easier to paddle than tandem kayaks, which require some level of cooperation…

The key feature for beginners is stability and the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak is wonderfully stable, so no dramas there.

The design is so good that it’s super-easy to paddle straight.

The wide-open cockpit makes it easy for people to get in and out.

advancedframe convertible elite kayak david testimonial

Good question.

In my experience, seniors are looking for a lightweight kayak, and at 24kg, the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak is one of our heaviest.

If you specifically want to stick with a tandem, but you need something lighter, check out our StraitEdge2 Pro Kayak.

But if you think that with good teamwork you can lift 24kg, then it is a wonderful kayak for seniors.

The other key features for seniors are stability and ease of getting in and out – the AdvancedFrame Sport Convertible Elite is extremely stable and the wide open cockpit makes it easy to get in and out of.

advancedframe convertible elite inflatable kayak sandra templar1

Not on their own, but with an adult it’s a great option. You can even fit a couple of kids in and let them take turns.

advancedframe convertible elite kayak with kids

Yes, generally speaking it’s easy to get in and out of.

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak is VERY stable, which is one of the key features for getting in and out easily.

Although it is a sit-in kayak, the rear paddler’s legs are not covered at all and the front paddlers’s legs are inside a deck that has a nice long zipper on it, so you can open it up to get out.

The only issue might be if you are using the Single Deck Conversion or the Double Deck Conversion, in which case you have to get in and out of cockpits. These cockpits are standard sized for kayaks, so most people can manage it fine. If you have VERY long legs or your mobility is compromised, you might want to leave the decks off.

advancedframe convertible elite kayak mark testimonial

Yes, the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak is LONG inside.

You can adjust the seat straps to bring the seat closer to the front of the kayak, or further back in the cockpit to give you more leg room.

If that’s still not enough room, you can remove the inflatable foot brace for the rear paddler.
advancedframe convertible elite kayak angela testimonial

The maximum capacity is 250kg / 400lbs.

I have found that the drop-stitch floor greatly enhances the rigidity of the kayak, so you really can go up to the maximum capacity.

If, however, one of the paddlers is over 115kg, you might want to consider the AirVolution2 Kayak because it has slightly better rigidity in the higher weight ranges.

About the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak

Advanced Elements have been making inflatable kayaks for well over 20 years – you don’t have to worry about quality.

All kayaks are inflated at the factory and left for 24 hours to ensure there are no slow leaks.

The main hull material used is called PVC tarpaulin and it is super thick and tough.

PVC Tarpaulin Illustration 1

The floor is high quality drop-stitch, also extremely tough:

ds drop stitch floor advancedframe inflatable kayak advanced elements 590 1024x590 1

In the extremely rare case that you damage the hull, the kayak comes with a repair kit, so you can put on a patch.

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak is a sit-in kayak, but it comes with a wide-open cockpit so it’s easy to get in and out of.

There are optional decks that you can zip on to give you cockpits with inflatable coaming. These cockpits help keep the spray out of the kayak and allow you to attach a spray skirt.

advancedframe convertible elite kayak mark testimonial

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak is a tandem kayak – this means it has seating for 2 people.

There is a third seating position in the middle that allows you to paddle it solo.

advancedframe convertible elite kayak rob testimonial

Deflated and packed dimensions are:

91cm x 53cm x 33cm

You can get the depth (33cm) down a bit by putting the seats somewhere else, but the other dimensions can’t really be altered.

The weight is 24kg and the kayak comes with a durable duffel bag with removable backpack straps.

advancedframe convertible elite inflatable kayak robert laird 2

At 24kg, the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak is one of our heavier kayaks.

You would have to be quite strong to carry it down to the water by yourself when inflated.

But most people can manage if there are two people to carry it – one at each end.

If you want to make it easier to transport, I would suggest getting the Kayak Cart – this allows you to wheel the kayak to the water and then you can easily stow the cart on the deck.

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak is very stable.

advancedframe convertible elite kayak david testimonial

There is a fin – it is part of the hull.

advancedframe fin 1024x768 1

There is no rudder on the AdvancedFrame Convertble Elite kayak.

The Rudder Kit we sell is compatible with this kayak, but I would suggest trying the kayak without the rudder first. Most customers find they don’t need one.

Yes, the ePropulsion Vaquita can be used with the ratchet straps (included with the propeller).

How to use the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak

You can review the instruction manual here:

AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak Instruction Manual

But my strong recommendation is that you take a look at the setup video (note: this is a Convertible Kayak not the Convertible Elite, so it will take some more time since you’d have to inflate the Drop-Stitch Floor):

AdvancedFrame Convertible inflatable kayak AE1007-R

It should take you around 8 minutes, once you have got the hang of it.

It’s about 8 minutes, once you have got the hang of it.

You just take off the valve covers and set the valves to deflate. Walk away for a few minutes and it’s done.

You can use the deflate function of the pump if you want to, but I have never found this to be necessary.

How To Clean and Pack Away Your Advanced Elements Inflatable Kayak

The best thing you can do is put an old towel inside the kayak when you go paddling. This keeps the inside dry and clean.

You will almost certainly get some water on the deck and sides, but if you can keep the inside clean and dry, that makes things easier.

If it’s salt water on the outside, you may wish to use a wash cloth with clean water to pat the deck of the kayak.

Do NOT use a hose, the kayak gets way too wet that way.

The deck doesn’t take too long to dry, then you can fold the kayak up as per the instructions.

Yes, it DOES go back in the bag!

What to buy

Duffel bag with padded backpack straps

2 lumbar seats

Drop-stitch floor

Repair Kit

Owner’s Manual

You need to purchase a pump, a paddle and a life jacket as the minimum.

We also recommend a dry-bag for keeping your gear dry.

Check out our Fishing Gear section if you want to do some kayak fishing.

Any double bladed kayak paddle will work, but I would strongly suggest getting a LONG one, so you can easily get over the side tubes. Ours start at 230cm.

Check out our range of collapsible kayak paddles.

Pretty well any pump on the market capable of 2 PSI will work, but I would strongly suggest you purchase our Double Action Hand Pump with Gauge because it has all the right adapters and comes with a 12 month warranty.
