Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Inflatable Touring Kayak

 

The Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame® Expedition Elite is the natural evolution of inflatable kayaks. A hybrid of a folding frame kayak and an inflatable kayak, the Expedition incorporates AE's proven aluminum 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. Working together to deliver optimal paddling performance, the aluminum ribs form a shape that cuts through the water while the Drop-stitch floor provides unparalleled rigidity in an inflatable and creates hull chine. At 13’ long, with plenty of storage space, the Expedition Elite is the perfect kayak for any adventure!

 

Drop-Stitch Technology

Advanced Elements' drop-stitch technology allows for high pressure forms that are extremely rigid. The drop-stitch floor in this kayak creates a hull with chine, which enhances the tracking and hull speed, and adds unparalleled rigidity in an inflatable kayak.

Great Service

Great company to deal with. Matt worked hard to work out the details of getting me a canoe to me while I was on the road.

He arranged for me to pick my Frontier 12 in Denver, then when the manufacturer couldn’t fulfill my paddle order, he found a paddle for me through a competitor and arranged for it to be delivered to my next destination.

Then...... when I decided to purchase a casting bar Matt again worked out the details of getting it to me while I was still traveling.

His service was definitely above and beyond what one normally gets from even companies that offer great service.

Thanks for all your hard work Matt! You helped make an incredible fishing summer!

Found What I Needed!

Owned many kayaks and the Flint is the most comfortable and customizable out there. If you fish or hunt this is the kayak for you.

Huge Shoutout to Matt!

Huge shout out to Matt! I was shopping around and looking to purchase my first kayak. I had very specific needs and a lot of questions as a newbie.

Making a big investment without seeing the product was a big leap for me but working Matt helped me through this process (before and even after the purchase!)

He was showed a lot of patience and followed up with my many questions, enough that I had enough information and confidence to pull the trigger.

I selected the point 65 kingfisher as storage and transportation was a key factor for me. this kayak breaks down to a manageable size that eventually I can put into my storage closet when not in use, making both me and my girlfriend happy!

The communication and support Matt and Kayak Creek provided exceeded my expectations.

I even referred my cousin who is also in the market for a kayak to Kayak Creek.

This is my initial review and I may post an update when I have new to offer but so far a great experience! Thanks Matt!
