The AIRE BAKraft makes getting out on the water easier than ever
The AIRE BAKraft has opened an exciting new world of adventure to explorers. Rather than hiking or biking in and then back out, we can now head into the mountains on foot or bike and either paddle a lake or paddle out on a stream or river.
These individual-sized inflatable boats are designed to be light and small enough to fit in a backpack or on a bike and durable enough to withstand the rigors of hard use. The AIRE Bakraft takes that design and one-ups it with a self-bailing floor and an I-beam construction that resists folding in technical rapids. Also, AIRE didn’t take its basic kayak design and cut materials to save weight. The company actually tweaked the shape of the BAKraft to cut smoothly through all types of water.
At 7 feet long and 8.5 pounds, the BAKraft Hybrid is a scaled-down version of the BAKraft Expedition, which is 10 feet in length and weighs 12 pounds.
The BakRaft series is made in the U.S. with a Vectran fabric shell, has the urethane AIREcell internal bladder system and thermos/heat-welded seams, and has streamlined in-field repairability. It comes with a seat, inflation bag, hand pump, thigh straps and repair kit.
