AIRE Inflatable Kayaks
If you’ve been on a whitewater river before, chances are you've seen an AIRE inflatable kayak. AIRE has been the leading name in whitewater inflatable kayaks for over 30 years. Outdoorplay offers a full line of AIRE inflatable kayaks perfect for your paddling needs. No matter what type of kayaking you do, AIRE has a watercraft for you. And they are made in the USA!
AIRE inflatable kayaks can be divided into flatwater designs and whitewater designs. They have a few that are considered more of a hybrid design that can handle both flatwater and up to class III whitewater as well. AIRE also offers a budget friendly line with a shorter warranty window called their Tributary line. We will look at a few of their top sellers and at both pricing tiers below.
The most well known AIRE inflatable whitewater kayak is the Force. The AIRE Force mimics the maneuverability of hard-shell kayaks while providing the security and safety of an inflatable kayak. It surfs waves, punches through holes and maneuvers quickly. No other inflatable comes close to matching the Force's quickness and river play performance.
For a great hybrid IK, look no further than the Lynx I. The AIRE Lynx I inflatable kayak is a proven sleek design with incredible stability and control. This all-around river runner rides up and over waves, plows through holes, and charges through eddy lines. The lower profile side tubes and flat hull design makes it easy to maneuver around in a technical rapid.
For newer whitewater kayakers, nothing beats the Tributary Tomcat Solo inflatable kayak from AIRE. This entry-level boat is built with a perfect blend of design and price. The upturned bow and stern deflect waves for easy maneuver when the action picks up. The Tomcat Solo or Tandem is a fun and comfortable choice for paddlers who want to safely and securely try the sport of whitewater kayaking in a kayak they won’t outgrow as their skills progress.
If you are a fisherman, you’ll love the AIRE Tributary Angler 11 Inflatable Fishing Kayak. This fishing-specific inflatable kayak is designed for avid fishermen who want more water access. Built for comfort, the adjustable seat will have you sitting above the water to make casting a breeze. The Angler 11 is lightweight, compact and includes a removable fin for superior tracking to present properly at your favorite fishing hole on the river.
