Comments about Advanced Elements AE1007-R AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak:

Took the AdvancedFrame Convertible inflatable kayak out on some flat water and it was wonderful.
The seats are soft and cushy like sitting in an arm chair.
The kayak goes straight and very fast.
Didn't bother with the backbone as it was so straight and fast without it!

    Comments about Advanced Elements AE1007-R AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak:

    Bought this for a Boy Scout Trip on the Llano River. The only complaint I have about it was it was difficult to maneuver over very shallow water with two adults in it. It did do better with a smaller Scout and one Adult. Otherwise, I loved the fact that you can throw this in the back of your car, inflate and have fun!

    too much cons to keep

    By anonymous

    About Me Beginner

    Pros

      Cons

      • Difficult Entry & Exit
      • Heavy
      • Not Enough Storage

      Best Uses

        Comments about Advanced Elements AE1007-R AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak:

        I bought this kayak thinking it will be great for portability and because I do not have or plan to buy a roof rack. Very disappointing. This product is very heavy and cumbersome. It's a strain on your back just getting it up and inflated. The pump sold to me had fittings that did not fit the valves. I had to hold the pump hose to the valve with my thumb to try to inflate it. Collapsing it is no better. Getting it back in the carrying bag is difficult. Never had it out on the water for these reasons. By the time you get this ready to go, your desire to get in the water diminishes because you already had a workout. Needless to say, this is going back to the store. DO NOT BUY!

        • Run fast

          Comments about Advanced Elements AE1007-R AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak:

          The overall performance is pretty good, stable and comfortable. We are happy to have it.

          On the other hand, if this kayak can have a motor mount that would be great for us, it will keep you safe in case you are tired and cannot back to your landing point.

          Great product/ Buy an go

          By Revolution

          from Central Florida

          Comments about Advanced Elements AE1007-R AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak:

          Ordered the Advanced Elements AirFrame Convertible. Ordered the drop stitch floor, just cuz, and the spray deck for two. Ordered several other accessories and such. Lots of money invested. Were we nervous? Yes. We ordered all that based on others reviews. A little risky. Were also interested in the Sea Eagle 385 but no reviews whatsoever from consumers. ?. Who needs that? Let me tell you we shopped this to DEATH. This is the best there is considering wt., capacity, width (do you really think you'll be comfortable paddling a 38" kayak), and price. Although don't be misled. If you get all the goodies not included with the boat (like pump and paddles for starters, $250.00 right there), you'll go by $1000.00 at a dead run.Took it out on a lake. Had a lovely time. Came back nice and dry. Tracks well, doesn't blow around. Nice. Got a compliment on it. So we're one for one.I would like to tell you a few things I wish I knew going in:[...]is the outlet for Advanced Element products as far as we know. they're customer service is unbelievable. Here in Central Florida it is next to impossible to find an air gauge for an inflatable kayak. Order it on the pump from [...].During inflation make sure you are reading the gauge right. The black lines are usually Bars and it is the pink inner lines which are PSI. There are two tubes they call the main chambers that go all the way around the kayak. These are the biggest to pump up and are no problem at all. About Thirty five pumps in each with a double action hand pump. You have to be careful because the two tubes share the same pocket and have to be pumped up equally. The valves are a breeze. Don't worry about that. No need for a car 12V pump. After the main chambers you have the floor which is much easier and then all the little stuff to pump up which is just a few pumps each. The whole process is very quick.The spray decks zip on from the rear.We received no manual with our boat, the drop stitch floor needs a separate adapter and no literature or repair kit came with it. So we had to print a manual online at AE and find out the PSI of the floor which is 7.It is a little heavy, but like someone else said in a review, that's a good thing. You don't want a light weight. We bought a Coleman Canoe/Kayak transporter to take it down to the lake or river. Works great. Hard shells are heavier by the way.Carlisle Rodeo paddles from [...] work great. 230cm. Fiberglass, light, larger paddle on the end. Two piece though.Ordered the second foot rest for the front seat. My wife says it's great. Like that little anchor AE sells. If you see a turtle swimming or something you want to watch, just drop anchor and pull yourself back to observe.After you take it out of the water, just prop it up a little, wipe down the outside with a towel, remove the spray deck and seats, deflate (use your pump to aid in deflation), fold and stow. When folding make sure you keep the straight line straight. Folds real nice that way.That's all I got for now. Remember, with gas prices on the rise, and renting a kayak at $20.00 a pop at least (and you have to be back at a certain time which ruins the whole experience), your saving a lot of money. The best things in life are free or at least the price of an AE Kayak.

              The Advanced Elements AE1007-R AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak can be used in salt water. Washing the salt off is a good standard maintenance practice.
