THE BEST IN INFLATABLE KAYAK TECHNOLOGY. Welcome to the brand new Slider inflatable kayak series, the world's first 100% drop stitch kayak featuring German design and world class Korean manufacturing. The KXone Slider 375 - a brilliant lightweight inflatable kayak with excellent tracking and build qualities. But what makes this inflatable kayak so much more better than the rest? Read on... Watch It In Action
Inflatable Technology This inflatable Drop Stitch kayak is faster, stiffer and stronger than any conventional air kayak. It can be easily transported in a compact bag. At just 14kgs, the material is much lighter than any double kayak on the market, whilst the boat shape is narrower and nevertheless provides more space. And with up to 8psi air pressure, so it is as stable and solid as a hard shell kayak.
We often get asked: Are inflatable kayaks any good? Are they as good as normal kayaks? Being inflatable, do they bend like pool toys?
How for so many years did most of us deal with lugging around heavy, polyethylene kayaks, straining our backs and having to worry about: Where am I going to store my kayak? How light a kayak can I get? What is the easiest way to transport my kayak?
These are questions we have been asked from beginners and expert kayakers alike, as they inquisitively ask about this advancement in kayaking. And for good reason. Simply put, the technology is now at a level which is exciting, and meets a demand from customers who want performance and lightweight nature in their watercraft.
What makes this inflatable kayak superior? It is the only inflatable kayak on the market made in this patent-pending 100% Drop-Stitch construction. Both side chambers and the bottom floor are made of advanced SELYTECH© DS (drop stitch) fabric for superior strength, high-pressure inflation, durability, and abrasion resistance. Moulded V-shaped shape underneath bow and stern made of rigid, durable material for better tracking, easier paddling, and greater speed. As advancements in inflatable water sport technologies have developed in recent times, in particular drop-stitch manufacturing techniques, we are experiencing a fast transition into more practical, lightweight, yet sturdy watercraft.
Drop-Stitch Inflatable vs Regular Inflatable? You're not alone if you hear inflatable kayak and think the inside is just filled with air. Whilst your average camping air mattress is just that, Drop-Stitch inflatables like our KXone Slider range (and also our inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boards), contain millions of tough polyester threads that connect the top-to-bottom, and side walls of the kayak. This allows them to be inflated to high-pressures whilst giving them rock-hard rigidity and form. The result? Hard shell kayak feel and performance, with easy transportation and storage of an inflatable.
Benefits of Inflatable Kayaks & Canoes: Up to 50% lighter than their traditional counterparts plastic kayak, making for easy transportation to and from the water. Folds up into a compact bag, making great for those living in apartments, or those with little room to store a plastic kayak - you can leave it in the boot of your car or store it away in your cupboard. Remarkably tough and durable, being made from an abrasion resistant material, inflatable kayaks won't ding or scratch like a traditional plastic kayak. Great performance and tracking capability, with huge advancements in the rigid V-hull, including a clever slide-in skeg, makes for a fast kayak that holds a straight line.
The SLIDER is the ultimate inflatable kayak for use on rivers, light whitewater, on lakes and for kayaking for those demanding more than just a traditional inflatable.

Tony’s customer service was outstanding - he made sure the delivery of the kayak got to our holiday destination."
"Not only did we track really well but our speed was not limited at all by the wind. We both found it very comfortable and as an extra bonus the distance between us meant that our paddles never clashed when we got out of sequence – another words the two of us could paddle at our own pace without interfering with each other. This is rare for double kayaks. The kayak is extremely stable and easy to get in and out of and has huge capacity and plenty of legroom."
