Advanced Frame Expedition
A great start to the season with some perfect paddling weather over the last few weeks. In all the heat it seemed that the best place to escape was on the water....
One of our best selling kayaks has been the Advanced Frame Expedition. The reviews speak highly of it and customer feedback has been simply fantastic.
It has been a while since I'd taken one out, so a quick drive through the mountains to find a quiet lake.
Set up is simple, straight out of the bag, 2 main chambers to inflate, floor, seat & deck combing & we are done in 5 mins. An adjustment to the foot rest and I'm away. So, so easy!
Under grey Snowdonia skies, the Advanced Frame Expedition whispered along with ease. The inflatable back rest gives plenty of support and the foot brace allows for very comfortable positioning of my long legs. Knee purchase against the upper deck area makes for easy paddling.
A quick tour of the lake, through the "narrows" & back before the skies threatened rain. Time for a quick exit. The Advanced Frame Expedition can be lifted out of the water by one, easily folded in seconds before throwing back into the boot of the car.
John Shipton kindly sent back a trip report back from a paddling trip to Croatia...
