Advanced Elements® goal is to develop new and unique paddlesports products that enhance their customers' outdoor experience. The focus is on designing and manufacturing inflatable kayaks with cutting edge technology. They are deep rooted in product development with patented technology, and heavily focused on customer service. The kayaks incorporate many different materials and components and deliver high performance at a very reasonable price. Advanced Elements is the makers of the FireFly™, Lagoon™, AdvancedFrame® , StraitEdge™, and AirFusion™ kayaks, as well as the StraitEdge™ Canoe and the Hula11 high-pressure StandUp Paddleboard.

The AdvancedFrame® kayak is a hybrid of a folding frame kayak and an inflatable kayak. Its bow slices through water like a knife and rivals the tracking of hard-shell kayaks. The stern acts as a skeg increasing the tracking performance. The Lagoon™ kayak is durable and lightweight with built-in rigid forms that increase performance. The AirFusion™ kayak is a narrow beam kayak with a frame and airtube construction resulting in impressive hull speed.

You can take these inflatables with you anywhere in the world and no roof rack is needed! Pack it into a remote wilderness area and paddle where no one has paddled before. Simply inflate with a foot pump and hit the water in minutes.
