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 us 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.

    Good buy

    Posted by Mike on 2020 Jun 8th

    I paddle on lake Ontario around the Toronto islands (up to 4 hours). This kayak works great for me. It is light weight, sturdy, reliable, nothing has gone wrong. There are no bad things to say about it. I would buy it again. When you do buy it, I suggest checking out the community forum on AE's website where many concerns are addressed. It was tricky setting up the first 2 times. After reading the tips on the forum, i have setup time down to 15 minutes.
