Dropstitch kayaks have the rigidness previously only seen on the SUP boards. The thousands of lines between the top and bottom, allow the air chambers to be inflated at high pressure. In this way, the kayak does not bend, which translates into less water resistance. The dropstitch kayaks are easy to inflate, are quickly in the water and are back in the bag with a snap.Read more
Dropstitch technology means: hundreds and thousands of wires connecting the top and bottom of the air compartment, ensuring that the original shape is maintained even at high pressure (up to 10PSI). This rigidness makes the kayak robust and dimensionally stable. The dropstitch kayaks can withstand strong hits. Shape stability ensures that the resistance of water is less than with the original inflatable kayaks, due to the overpressure there is almost no sagging in the air chambers. This is a great advantage, especially for longer kayaks.
