Vortex is shipping as normal, but most models I hold stock of are now sold out due to high demand.

Compare Backbone & DropStitch Floor:

- Backbone:

+ve: Cheaper. Achieves a "v-shape" hull. Very rigid.

-ve: An extra component to fit when inflating. Needs to be aligned precisely.

- DropStitch Floor:

+ve: Weight saving. Simple to fit. Durability. Less chance of damage than a regular floor due to over-inflation.

-ve: Price. Can be bit hard on your bottom & heels. Does not achieve a "v-shape" hull. Extra adapter required for your pump (supplied with floor).

DropStitch Floor FAQ:

Q. Why is there a small "bubble" opposite side to the floor inflation point?
A. Internally, the structure of a DropStitch floor is composed of 1000s & 1000s of small threads extruded back & forth between the fabric. Of course, where the inflation point is, there are no threads, so you get a small raised area; a "bubble". This is perfectly normal & doesn't affect the performance or guarantee.
