Innova Kayaks Helios I EX Inflatable Kayak - Red HEL-0000-068 




Weighing in at only 29 lbs. is the Helios I EX – the single seat version of the Helios II by Innova Kayaks. This inflatable kayak is perfect for recreation, sea kayaking, and fishing - but touring is where the Helios I really shines. Between the extended fore and aft decks, and the deck netting and gear bungees, you have plenty of room for gear storage.

Like almost all of Innova’s inflatable kayaks, the Helios I is made out of Nitrylon – an extremely durable, rip-stop, rubber coated polyester fabric. Nitrylon is not only stronger than PVC, but it is also eco-friendly and does not release dioxins into the water. Its 3 separate air chambers – each individually tested at the factory for air retention – are filled to an industry-leading 3psi vs. the competition’s 2psi. This makes for a much firmer hull and more user control. The Helios I can be fully inflated and set up in less than 10 minutes. When you’re done with it, the Nitrylon fabric dries very quickly, and folds up into a deluxe drybag/backpack that is small enough to fit in an airplane’s overhead storage bin.


The Helios I has been chosen twice for the Reader’s Choice Award from Sea Kayaker Magazine in the inflatable kayak category. The award was based on results of a reader survey taken every 3 years. You simply can’t go wrong with the Helios I!

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.
