Take it to the next level with the Advanced Elements Convertible Elite! A 4.8m kayak that can be paddled solo or tandem, the Convertible Elite combines Advanced Elements rigid aluminium rib-frame technology in the bow and stern, and drop-stitch technology in the floor, to provide paddling performance that rivals that of a hard-shell kayak.
Perfect for the caravan, boot or rooftop this space-saving inflatable kayak is suited to the casual angler looking for a kayak that doubles as a comfortable recreational paddle.
By far the biggest question is "Are inflatable kayaks reliable?" and the answer is a resounding YES! Advanced Elements have been making inflatable kayaks for over 20 years and continue to innovate in the space.
Unlike many other inflatable kayaks Advanced Elements kayaks are made with multiple layers of material for maximum durability. The drop-stitch floor technology allows you to inflate the floor to a high pressure creating a floor that is extremely rigid. It creates a hull with chine, which enhances the tracking and hull speed, and adds unparalleled rigidity in an inflatable kayak.

The highback seating that comes with the Convertible Elite is a game-changer. It has a 4.5 cm foam cushion with a hard-wearing material cover that is comfy for hours of paddling. The high back and sides allow you to relax back into the seat and it wraps around you. The thick straps clip into the kayak easily and you can adjust the straps while out on the water.
The best bit though is that the seats also have an inflatable lumbar support chamber built in! If you find that you need a bit of support in your lower back, you can inflate or deflate the chamber while out on the water by simply blowing into the mouth tube.
The Convertible Elite is a unique kayak as it comes with option to transform the open deck configuration into a closed deck in seconds with the single or double deck conversion kits which are sold separately.
Once attached they will keep your deck closed to reduce water in the cockpit and also keep your legs out of the sun! They simply zip onto the thick zippers that run around the kayak and allow you to use a skirt or you wish.
