AE1042-O Airfusion 'Evo' Kayak.

Awarded a 2018 OutDoor Industry Award for its design at the 2018 Friedricshafen OutDoor Show in Europe.

Continuing the EVOlution of this award winning design, the AirFusion ™ EVO is unlike any other inflatable kayak on the water! The first of its kind, the AirFusion™ EVO’s unique design is a fusion of aluminum frame poles, high-pressure drop-stitch air chambers, and an enclosed outer Polyurethane skin which results in a streamlined high-performance kayak. Skirtable for protection in adverse conditions, the EVO offers great stability, a V-shape hull for superior tracking and a rear access hatch for easy access to under deck items. At 13’ long, with a narrow beam and drop-stitch technology, the AirFusion™ EVO is a quick and nimble kayak that tracks like a rigid hard-shell.

Speed and High Performance!

Designed to rival the performance and speed of skin-on-frame kayaks, while simplifying the setup procedure, the AirFusion™ has evolved over the years through a series of improvements and refinements into the NEW AirFusion™ EVO. An inflatable kayak unlike any other on the water, the AirFusion™ EVO’s design utilizes drop-stitch technology for the main air chambers, low-pressure air thwarts to build out the structure, a Polyurethane outer skin, and an aluminum keel frame. Drop-stitch technology allows to create high pressure forms that are extremely rigid while the low-pressure air thwarts replace bulky frame parts that are typically used in skin-on-frame kayaks. The aluminum keel frame creates a V-hull for superior tracking while the Polyurethane outer skin creates a hydrodynamic surface for enhanced glide through the water making the AirFusion™ EVO a high-performance kayak for any trip.
