Innova Swing I Inflatable Kayak - Green SWG1-0017-GRN
Innova Kayaks Swing I Inflatable Kayak - Green
Innova Kayaks is finally introducing the Swing I inflatable kayak in green for 2017! The Swing I is the single-person version of its bigger brother, the tandem Swing II. The Swing I is a decked inflatable kayak that cuts through the water perfectly with its sharp lines. This boat responds well in lakes but scoffs at waves and more difficult class II waters. It only takes 5 minutes to inflate, and is easily packed away in a pillow-sized bag. Each Innova inflatable kayak is divided into 3 separate air chambers. A pressure relief valve is installed in the floor chamber to relieve possible over-pressure.
The Swing uses a highly-efficient “tubeless” system on its Nitrylon Lite™ hull. Nitrylon is a rip-stop polyester fabric, which is rubber coated on the interior for air retention, and Teflon treated on the outside for water repellency and stain resistance.
The air-holding seams of the hull are vulcanized and permanently bonded – similar to the way tires are vulcanized. Each chamber is individually tested at the factory for air retention.
The tubeless construction parallels what tire manufacturers went to decades ago – much lighter, but inflates to a higher pressure than competitors’ bladder kayaks (3psi vs. 2psi.). This higher pressure makes the boat stiffer and gives it a snappier paddling performance, especially in rougher water. Competitors’ inflatable kayaks are made using an unreinforced vinyl bladder inside a zip on skin. This makes the boat heavier, and could potentially allow water to get trapped inside, making it difficult to dry and pack away.
The decks of the Swing I are urethane-coated and have zippered access for ease of cleaning and gear storage. The aft zippered deck opens completely in 2 flaps for full access, and each deck has gear bungees. The decks are supported using aluminum arches fore and aft of the cockpit openings. The crosswise set of these arches give the deck shape and structure, and help give the Swing stiffness for when you’re paddling in rough water. When folding the kayak, you take the arches out for a compact folded size, or leave them in for a slightly bigger folded size.
The Swing also comes equipped with a carry handle on each end. If you want to stay dry while out there on the water, pick up a spray skirt in red or black!

So very happy....5 stars!! Any help we needed they were there for us!! When we are ready to buy the next NuCanoe it will be from Mr. and Mrs. Mark Bohlin they are such wonderful people and very helpful and always making sure we are 100 % ready to get in the water with our new NuCanoe!!
This amazing Kayak fits easily inside a Honda Fit!
So much fun! Even comes with usable paddles.
It tracks OK, but does fill with water, so buy a pump or you will get wet.
It is so easy to put together, and take apart, only taking seconds.
My first kayak, and I think my first palindrome. Straps strip easy as had to replace one on first use, but I think with care straps will last. Easy to store; glad I went with a modular, especially with ability to use tandem or solo. But I still thin it is a shame that the word for a word that is the same spelled backwards as forward is not itself a palindrome. Matt at Kayakcreek was great.
This order was placed months ago. Not Kayak Creeks fault. Just the economy and lack of workers and materials. Kayak Creek has been awesome with communication about my order. Being it's late Autumn I'll wait till springtime to install the palm drive.
We took our Kayak out on its maiden voyage last weekend. The assembly/disassembly was super easy and quick even being my first time!!! It moved through the water great and tracking was excellent! Only issue was with me being 6' tall it was a tight fit. Great service from Matt on keeping me updated on delivery issues. Would recommend this Kayak to others!! Oh, I already did!!
Onve in awhile, you get great servuce backed by good people, who see tmyour order through and who give it a personal touch. Matt was helpful and kind and the products and service are wonderful. I love my kayak! Thank you, Kayak Creek, for being honest and so helpful. The photo is of my boyfriend on Thermalito Afterbay in his NuCanoe.
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!
