STAR Paragon XL Inflatable Kayak from NRS


The STAR Paragon XL Inflatable Kayak by NRS combines the flat-water handling characteristics of a traditional kayak with the convenience of an inflatable. The Paragon XL adds 16 inches of length to the original Paragon to provide extra room for gear and provisions on extended tours. The Paragon's unique rigid keel inserts in the bow and stern provide outstanding tracking and stability.


A skeg plate in the stern, with included 5" and 9" interchangeable skegs, further enhances tracking. Bow and stern splash covers help keep you and your gear dry, and extensive bungee rigging gives you lots of options for lashing down additional equipment and supplies. The self-bailing Paragon's drop-stitch PVC floor insert inflates to a rigid 8-10 psi giving the paddler a stable and comfortable position above the water. A padded folding seat provides a strong and comfortable paddling position. The adjustable seat attaches quickly to D-rings in the boat, making the Paragon easy to set up, roll up and store. Two easy-to-use straps hold the drop-stitch floor insert securely in place.


STAR inflatable kayaks are built with advanced-formula PVC material using state-of-the-art seam welding technology, resulting in superior abrasion resistance, longevity and air retention.

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.
