For the solo paddler who wants to travel the world or just has limited storage space, the Innova Helios I Inflatable Kayak fits under an airplane seat and weighs just 24 lbs. Although it doesn't weigh much, the heavy duty rubber coated 1,200 denier Nitrylon exterior is extremely tough, capable of resisting the typical bumps and abrasion that a well-traveled boat endures. Innova uses Lite-Pack on the deck and interior of the Helios I for further weight reduction and comfort against the skin. This material has a polyester face that's softer and significantly lighter than Nitrylon yet stands up to the usual cockpit and deck wear and tear. For multi-day paddling trips storage underneath the Innova Helios I Inflatable Kayak's front and rear decks provides ample storage for camping gear and plenty of good food. Set-up takes less than 10 minutes, and is not nearly as complicated or expensive as many folding kayaks on the market. For a similar boat with two seats be sure to check out the Innova Helios II Inflatable Kayak.
