New to market and available at Pro Marine Store, UK is the superb Optimal inflatable kayak range from Sandbanks Style.  

Using technology derived from their excellently reviewed inflatable SUP range comes a single seat or two-seater inflatable Kayak, with the rigidity of a hard kayak but the easy use and transport of an inflatable SUP.

The Optimal Kayak uses pressure chambers derived from their high pressure SUPs, resulting in a high rigidity Kayak, for one or two people, with seating providing back support and a comfortable ergonomic paddling position.

The Kayak inflates to such high pressure that all flex and wobbliness that is typically found in all other inflatable kayaks is eliminated.  Make no mistake - this kayak is nothing like what you may have seen before from traditional inflatable kayak manufacturers as it uses a much higher quality construction, able to withstand extremely high pressures.  

Pressure = Rigidity = High efficiency paddling

The kayak packs down just like an inflatable SUP so is easily transportable as a backpack/wheelie bag, or in the boot of your car.  

Due to its high rigidity, the paddling experience achieved is very much like a rigid plastic or fibreglass kayak, but with all the convenience of a SUP. 

From the Manufacturer

The Optimal is an inflatable, crossover kayak that truly excels in any water and is designed to feel just like a solid kayak and not compromise on performance. The Optimal will help inspire confidence in with a balanced rocker profile for speed on the flat and manoeuvrability in whitewater. The V-shaped hull is designed for stability and also helps the Optimal cut through the water effortlessly. The rounded stern sheds water easily, making it forgiving in moving water. There are luggage straps at the front and rear so it has plenty of room for dry bags and gear for your day on the water.  

The Optimal comes with a removable seat, 4-piece paddle, lower leg support, wheel bag as well as a removable skeg to add speed and stability at sea. It is also available as a single or double seater.

The Optimal is the top of the line kayak, with a v-bottom hull design, all made from the same structures and materials expected in the top of the line inflatable SUPs.  The V-shaped hull results in improved tracking through the water and the slightly wider shape gives excellent stability.  The Optimal is suited for rivers and sea paddling, and will perform very well if you get flipped, where it can easily be righted and re-entered, due to its excellent rigidity.  The Optimal is a truly excellent product, and we expect the full UK product availability to be sold out very quickly.
