AdvancedFrame Sport Elite Kayak with Pump

AdvancedFrame Sport Elite Kayak with Pump
My favourite kayak of all time! It’s fast and easy to paddle, quick to set-up (5 minutes), lightweight (13kg) and very comfortable. The drop-stitch floor gives you excellent rigidity right up to the 113kg capacity.

Advanced Elements have crafted a puncture-resistant inflatable that won’t let you down.

There are 4 differences between the AdvancedFrame Sport and the AdvancedFrame Sport Elite Kayak:

  1. The Sport Elite has a drop-stitch floor whereas the Sport has a soft floor. The drop-stitch is high pressure and greatly enhances the rigidity and therefore speed and tracking of the kayak.
  2. The seat on the Sport Elite has an inflatable lumbar cushion inside it, the Sport seat does not. The Sport Elite seat also has a raised bum pad, which gives you a bit more height in the kayak, helping with paddling technique.
  3. The Sport Elite has the Inflatable Foot Brace included, whereas you have to buy it separately for the Sport.
  4. The duffel bag for the Sport Elite has padded, adjustable, detachable backpack straps, whereas the bag for the Sport just has regular shoulder straps.

“I recently bought my Advanced Sport Elite and I absolutely love it. As a 50 year old female I bought it so that I could take it down to the river in my car and go kayaking without the need to ask for help to carry it or tie it onto a roof. My first inflation however was very frustrating due to a faulty valve attachment (which would not lock on and would fly off while pumping).

There was another one that came with the pump so be aware in case this happens to you to try the spare. And test at home first. I have the drop stitch floor which is great to provide the firm floor. The kayak really does track straight and fast so you don’t tire easily. Experiment with your seat positioning so you have a comfortable ride with the foot rest. It really really is incredibly comfortable. My second time out was 2 hrs and I wouldn’t blink to go on a much longer paddle.”

Fast and Straight on the Water

Glides straight and cuts through chop with the patented AdvancedFrame design – no waggling when you paddle.

Drop-Stitch Floor

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

It gives you amazing rigidity, which means the kayak goes fast and straight.

Drop-stitch is also extremely durable – great for dogs or fishing.

Comfortable

With the inflatable lumbar cushion in the seat supporting your back, you can paddle for hours.

Inflatable Foot Rest

The Inflatable Foot Brace gives you a wonderful feeling of support when kayaking. For many people, it also adds to their stability and comfort.

AdvancedFrame Sport Elite FAQs

Performance

The AdvancedFrame and the AdvancedFrame Sport inflatable kayaks are all the same length width and look like the same design… so why did Advanced Elements create two of them??

Surprisingly fast!

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

The AdvancedFrame Sport Elite kayak sits at that sweet spot – it’s not the fastest kayak we sell, but it’s got a wonderful ‘glide’ to it.

Even though it’s only 3.2m long, the built-in fin and the awesome AdvancedFrame hull design give you a wonderful paddling experience.

advancedframe sport kayak frances testimonial

Yes!

For a shortish kayak, the tracking is impressive.

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.

advancedframe sport elite kayak christine pfitzner 2

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 Sport 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 sport kayak tracking

If you are lightweight, consider putting a bit less pressure into the floor chamber – you want to find that sweet spot where you get good rigidity, but the kayak is sitting as low in the water as possible.

Comfort

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

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.

The included inflatable foot brace adds to your comfort by supporting your lower back as you paddle.

Inflatable Foot Brace bb

The AdvancedFrame Sport Elite kayak comes with the inflatable foot brace. A lot of paddlers swear by foot braces for encouraging good paddling technique and for supporting the lower back.

The AdvancedFrame Sport 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.

advancedframe sport elite kayak christine pfitzner 2

What is the AdvancedFrame Sport Elite Kayak good for?

 

advancedframe sport inflatable kayak marie salinger

Yes, if they are not massive.

The AdvancedFrame Sport Elite kayak is not huge inside, but it has an over-sized cockpit, which means there might be enough space for both of you, depending on the size of the dog (and you).

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 …).

Yes.

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

This video is from Chasing Scale who use the AdvancedFrame kayak (very similar to the Sport Elite kayak) to make their fishing videos:

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

Optional kayak anchor if the fish are biting and you want to stay where you are.

230g nylon cooper anchor

Optional accessory frame if you want to attach additional rod holders, an EPERB, a fish finder, go-pro etc.

Accessory Frame System for Kayaks e1487043585802

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

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

E propulsion Vaquita Propeller

Yes.

The AdvancedFrame Sport Elite kayak is good for taking kids, as long as they are still small.

kayaking at hervey bay advancedframe sport kayak airvolution kayak selfie

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

It’s not huge inside, but the cockpit is over-sized, so there’s enough room for both of you, as long as it’s a small child.

Yes, it’s a good choice for at tender, as long as you are not in open ocean.

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.

It’s not our biggest kayak, but there is still quite a bit of deck space and capacity (113kg) 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.

Although it performs well in chop, it is not rated for open ocean.

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

You could technically do a multi-day expedition, you just don’t have a huge amount of deck space for storage of gear.

If you have to pack a huge amount of stuff, I suggest looking at our AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite, which has a higher capacity and more storage space.

review advancedframe expedition elite AE1009 XE

No.

Although the AdvancedFrame design helps it cut through chop very well, you can NOT put on a spray skirt to keep out the waves.

The AdvancedFrame Sport Elite is also a bit different from the AdvancedFrame kayak – it only has one main chamber in the inner tube, not two. For this reason, it is suggested you don’t go more than 50 metres from shore in this kayak.

No.

The AdvancedFrame Sport 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 Sport Elite Kayak good for?

Yes!

This is an AWESOME kayak for beginners!

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

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

At 13kgs it’s light enough for most people to lift.

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

kayaking at yacht st to broadwater parklands advancedframe sport kayak buildings in sight

Yes! In fact, I would say it’s the BEST kayak we have for seniors.

In my experience, seniors are looking for a lightweight kayak, and at 13kg, the AdvancedFrame Sport Elite kayak definitely ticks that box.

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

advancedframe sport kayak annette ritchie 3

Yes, depending on the age and strength of the child, of course.

It’s light, stable and easily manouverable, which are the key features for kids when they are learning to paddle independently.

My very slight daughter at 6 years old can paddle it, but only just. If a strong wind came up, she would struggle.

advancedframe sport kayak david cran

The AdvancedFrame Sport Elite is a sit-in kayak, so you do have to get your legs in and out of the cockpit.

But having said that, the cockpit is over-sized and the kayak is very stable, so it’s pretty easy.

advancedframe sport kayak peter testimonial

No.

It’s good up to about 6’2″, but beyond that, you want to consider the AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite kayak.

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.

When I say “about 6’2″”, it’s hard to be precise. Whether you fit in the kayak is more a function of leg length, rather than overall height. It also depends on how you like to sit in the kayak – legs straight requires more space than legs bent.

advancedframe expedition elite kayak testimonial

The maximum capacity is 113kg / 250lbs.

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.

About the AdvancedFrame Sport Elite Kayak

There are 4 differences between the AdvancedFrame Sport and the AdvancedFrame Sport Elite Kayak:

  1. The Sport Elite has a drop-stitch floor whereas the Sport has a soft floor. The drop-stitch is high pressure and greatly enhances the rigidity and therefore speed and tracking of the kayak.
  2. The seat on the Sport Elite has an inflatable lumbar cushion inside it, the Sport seat does not. The Sport Elite seat also has a raised bum pad, which gives you a bit more height in the kayak, helping with paddling technique.
  3. The Sport Elite has the Inflatable Foot Brace included, whereas you have to buy it separately for the Sport.
  4. The duffel bag for the Sport Elite has padded, adjustable, detachable backpack straps, whereas the bag for the Sport just has regular shoulder straps.

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.

Yes, it’s a sit-in kayak.

advancedframe sport kayak toni case

The cockpit is over-sized for easy entry and exit, so you can NOT put on a spray-skirt.

But in most conditions you will stay dry.

The AdvancedFrame Sport Elite kayak is a solo kayak – this means it has seating for only 1 person.

Although it is spacious, you could NOT fit two adults in it.

Taking a small child with you is totally viable though.

kayaking at hervey bay advancedframe sport kayak airvolution kayak selfie

Deflated and packed dimensions are:

76cm x 43cm x 20cm

You can get the depth (20cm) down a bit by putting the seats somewhere else, but the other dimensions can’t really be altered.

The weight is 13.3kg and the kayak comes with a durable duffel bag.

advancedframe convertible inflatable kayak bag AE1007 e1515631804904

At 13.3kg, the AdvancedFrame Sport Elite Kayak is one of our lightest kayaks.

Most people can carry it down to the water by themselves.

advancedframe sport elite kayak being carried

The AdvancedFrame Sport Elite kayak is very stable.

advancedframe sport kayak wendy testimonial

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

advancedframe fin 1024x768 1

There is no rudder on the AdvancedFrame Sport Elite kayak.

Although the Rudder Kit we sell is technically compatible with this kayak, you would have to be exceptionally short for that to be viable.

Note that the AdvancedFrame Sport Elite kayak is easy to paddle, tracks very well and is not very wind affected, so you are not likely to need a rudder.

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

Vaquita Propeller 6

No.

The cockpit is too big and there is no inflatable coaming.

The deck and inner tube covers are rip-stop polyester.

The inner tube is PVC.

There is an aluminium rib inside the bow and stern.

There are rubber moulded handles at each end and some elastic bungee lacing.

How to use the AdvancedFrame Sport Elite Kayak

You can review the instruction manual here:

AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak Instruction Manual

But my strong recommendation is that you take a look at the setup video (this video is for the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak, note that for the Sport Elite there is a drop-stitch floor and an inflatable foot brace.):

It should take you around 5 minutes, once you have got the hang of it.

It’s about 5 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.

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!

advancedframe sport kayak li lin testimonial

What to buy

• Duffel bag

• High back adjustable seat with lumbar inflation

• Drop-stitch floor

• Inflatable foot brace

• Repair kit

• Owners manual

• Double Action Hand Pump

You need to purchase 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 use our Double Action Hand Pump with Gauge because it has all the right adapters and comes with a 90-day warranty.

I love my kayak

Great. It took a little while to do the first set up mainly because of a small easily fixed problem with the pump. I rang Emily and we worked out the problem together. I have been on the water a few times - not as many times as I would like as the weather ... don't get me started about Melbourne weather!!! The kayak is easy and quick to set up; easy to manoeuvre, comfortable and I LOVE it! I enjoyed all the videos and web information and personal involvement that Emily provides which helped me decide to purchase a decent kayak from her. Highly recommend. Anne

Fantastic fun!

I’ve been hanging out for a kayak for several years but the storage & transport of hard shell kayaks was prohibitive. This Sport Elite kayak has ticked all the boxes & I have been out several times easily & quickly now to enjoy the waterways around. Fantastic value.

Coming from a hard shell kayak the tsunami 125 to the inflatable Sport Elite was quite different but surprisingly the Elite handled the wind on the Manning River NSW very well and I am very happy with the outcome, I would recommend this kayak to anyone looking for a lightweight and manageable kayak which easily fits into the back of your car! Well done Oz Inflatable!

How amazing!

I had bought my kayak a little early as I knew I was about to finish full time work and got a little excited! Now that I've finished, I've taken the kayak out a couple of times and am loving it. The videos are easy to understand and even answer your silly questions. I have found the kayak easy to set up and pack away and am so excited about the places we can go. Tonight, I've just returned from a dusk paddle looking for platypuses as part of a national survey through Australian Conservation Foundation. What a magical thing to be doing!!

Novice Kayaker

With a plan to retire soon, I shouted myself the Lightweight Deluxe kayak package. This model was chosen after I had consulted with Emily about how I wanted to use the kayak, i.e. calm water, maybe photography. The package was dispatched on the 20th March and arrived 3 days later. We took the kayak to the lake that afternoon and I would like to say it was all smooth sailing but being novices, we had no idea. I had watched the many videos that Emily posts on the website about setting up the kayak and pumping the inner tubes etc but when it came to doing it, it proved a little frustrating. I totally misread instructions on how much to inflate the dropstitch floor. I was sure it said 1 Psi. We did get the other tube right with 2 Psi. Then I set up the seat facing backwards, I did say I was a novice and still had a lovely paddle facing backward, which goes to show, if I can do it anyone can. Packing up was a breeze. The kayak does fold nicely in the bag. Second trip went better, no real issue. Third trip, I tried a 12V pump and again struggled to get the right Psi for the side tube but still had a nice paddle. By the 4th and 5th outing, I had my dropstitch at 6 Psi as recommended and 2 Psi for the side. I am now facing the right way and still enjoying kayaking. I have used the dry bags and they are very useful. I am still perfecting my rowing action and am learning each time I go out. As the weather is getting cooler in Victoria, we may have fewer opportunities but will make the most of any sunny afternoon. I think Oz inflatables provide a good service with advice and ensure that the customer is happy with the product. In particular, I think their try for 30 days on the water is excellent commitment to the customer and their belief in the product.

I Love my Advanced Frame Sport Elite Kayak

From the first time I inflated my kayak I just new it was going to be more than just manageable for me to use. I can carry it in its bag down to the water on my own as it is not too heavy for me or I can inflate it at the car, then carry it to the water. I have tried both ways, its a personal preference, but the most important thing for me is that I can now transport my kayak to the water and kayak safely on my own, without having to carry heavy unmanageable hard kayaks to and from car roof racks. I have sold my old heavy hard shell kayak and find my new advanced frame sport elite such a comfortable, stable kayak and it travels through the water faster than my old heavy one, it is so very comfortable, that I stay on the water for far longer. I would not hesitate to recommend these types of kayaks to anyone. I enjoy taking it on the rivers, canals and in the Bribie Island passage, in the sea at Caloundra and many other places, pulling in for a coffee and then paddling off again. Fabulous fun and easy. I am a small 71 old lady, not that fit and not much strength in my arms, but I can manage just fine with it.

Great product after you master the method of using inflation valves. Paddles well, as in easy to paddle in straight line. Easy to carry both packed in bag and one inflated and ready to use. I am of short height and slight frame. Especially love how everything fits in bag including pump and paddle. (Paddle light and collapses to 4parts.)

Excellent buy

Very happy with the advanced frame kayak. We do a fair amount of our kayaking from a yacht so the ability to get the kayak on and off the yacht was the feature I really needed, particularly when I'm sailing solo. At 13kg, it is really easy to get off and on the yacht. I'm 6ft 3ins, so a bit on the tall side for this kayak but with the seat back and the footrest semi inflated, I fit in absolutely fine for the 2-3 hours that most of my paddles last. If you were tall and planning longer day paddles and kayak weight was less important, I'd look at the expedition kayak. She's as easy to inflate as they say and she paddles well. I'd recommend that you pay the extra for the dropstitch floor for the extra rigidity. Overall an excellent buy and strongly recoomended.

We love our Kayaks

My wife and I simply love our Advanced Elements kayaks. From the useful and informative advice prior to purchase, the quick delivery and a great product, we have been 100% happy with everything. We are travelling long term in a caravan and having our kayaks has enabled us to use them where ever, and when ever, we want to. They are quick and easy to set up and once packed away can be stored in our caravan ready for the next adventure. So much easier than having hard kayaks on the roof of the car.

Advance Frame Sport Elite Kayak

I love my kayak I have had a solid kayak for quite a few years but it was getting harder to put in our slideon camper to take camping due to my husbands shoulder surgery. I found Emily online asked questions on which would be better for me as I was tossing up between two. Emily was so helpful I ordered this one it took 9 or 10 days to come from Qld to Tassie . Goes in the slideon so easy doesn't take long to set up and even quicker to let down and put away after its dry. Michelle

Great kayak

Easy to set up, light, tracks well, and very stable due to large bouyancy tanks.

Twice the fun

Loved my Advanced Frame Sport Elite Kayak so much bought one for hubby. Love that we can fit both bags in the car & the caravan.... The convenience of being able the carry our Kayak away from the crowds without breaking our backs. We have the confidence to take our AFSE kayaks everywhere we took our hard-shell ones.

Portable freedom

I recently bought my Advanced Sport Elite and I absolutely love it. As a 50 year old female I bought it so that I could take it down to the river in my car and go kayaking without the need to ask for help to carry it or tie it onto a roof. My first inflation however was very frustrating due to a faulty valve attachment (which would not lock on and would fly off while pumping). There was another one that came with the pump so be aware in case this happens to you to try the spare. And test at home first. I have the drop stitch floor which is great to provide the firm floor. The kayak really does track straight and fast so you don’t tire easily. Experiment with your seat positioning so you have a comfortable ride with the foot rest. It really really is incredibly comfortable. My second time out was 2 hrs and I wouldn’t blink to go on a much longer paddle.

Advanced Elements Sport Elite kayak

I bought this kayak for my wife who has absolutely no experience with paddle craft. She loves it. It took her 2 days to get used to it and now kayaking is her favourite activity. We live on the Central Coast of New South Wales and we are 5 minutes from Brisbane Water. We are now seeing our local area through totally different eyes. The kayak is easy to paddle and is highly stable. I would recommend this kayak to anybody. Service and support from Oz Inflatable kayaks was first rate and I would and have recommended you to a great many people. When we are setting up, so many people have been very impressed with the ease of set up and the ease of getting the kayaks to the water. It is hard to believe that you can get so much pleasure from exercise.

Above expectations

These kayaks are simple to set up, sturdy, track straight and very easy to paddle along. I could not be happier with our choice and the great advice given prior to our purchase. I would highly recommend the kayak and the whole purchase experience.

Best lockdown decision

I belong to a Dragonboat Club in NSW, have really missed paddling during lockdown. One of our members mentioned she recently bought the Lightweight Delux Package from Oz Inflatable kayaks. I tried hers out and saw how easy it was to inflate, so I ordered the package myself. Best decision I ever made, easy for me to get on the water now and delivery was super quick. Easy to paddle and tracks really well, very happy. Another member has also purchased recently.

I am super impressed with this package

I received my package just two days after ordering it. I am 64 years old and had not been in a kayak for many years. Even on my first set up I had it ready to go in under eight minutes (5 minutes on my second go) It packs up so small and light and no trouble to carry to the water. The kayak is everything you read about here and more. Its very comfortable, tracks beautifully and attracts attention in the water with others wanting to know where they can get one. I think putting a package like this together is brilliant. You get everything you need to get started on the water right away. A big thanks to Emily and the team for amazing service. Just get one, you will never regret it!
