The Helios II EX Inflatable Kayak by Innova Kayaks - Red HEL-0000-044

 

** THIS ITEM IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE **

 

Used by outfitters as far afield as Papua New Guinea, the Helios is both versatile and rugged.

An earlier version of the Helios II was used for search and rescue by the Canadian Ranger Kayak Patrol on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It was selected for its rugged durability and easy portability - and because it is easy to drop rangers by sea plane with their Innova.

It comes with its own deluxe drybag/backpack that will fit in an airline overhead bin. And when you reach your destination, you can set up in less than 10 minutes (really)!

Use the Helios to explore rivers, paddle along ocean shorelines, or go fishing in the back country. A Helios boat won the predicted log section of the ‘97 San Juan Challenge, averaging 3 knots over the 40-mile course in winds gusting to 45 knots.

Weighing only 36 pounds, the Helios II EX is an amazingly versatile, safe kayak.

The Helios II EX is fully rubber-coated Nitrylon™ fabric construction throughout. Nitrylon™ is rugged, dries fast, and is easy to keep clean.

    The Helios was chosen twice for a Readers Choice Award from Sea Kayaker magazine in the inflatable kayak category. The award was based on the results of a reader survey taken every three years.

     

    *When using the Helios as a sea touring kayak, we recommend purchasing the foot-operated rudder for precise control.

    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.
