How To Secure A Kayak

  1. Email or complete the enquiry form letting Nick at Vortex know the exact kayak model (& colour) you are interested in.
  2. You will receive an email confirming receipt of your email. If you are a Gmail user, my email will be in your SPAM folder!
  3. Keep an eye on the website homepage for any changes/updates to the stock arrival dates. Please don't email for updates. They will be on the website.
  4. Once I have notification that stock arrival is imminent, I'll email you requesting you make a purchase to secure your order. If you want your kayak you will need to be prompt doing this.
  5. Stock availability & shipping dates very fluid at the moment. I will do my best to secure stock for your order - but I can't guarantee any stock or any shipping dates until I have kayaks & accessories here in the UK.
  6. When stock arrives I will have a lot of kayaks to ship out - so please be patient.

The AdvancedFrame is a hybrid of a folding frame kayak and an inflatable kayak. Its bow slices through water like a knife and rivals the trackability of hard-shell kayaks. The stern acts as a skeg, increasing the tracking performance. It uses extremely durable materials and high-end components. There is plenty of on-board storage room for extended trips. It sets up in just a few minutes and is compact enough to take along on a weekend adventure.

FAQ:

A. Although, within the recommended maximum weight limit, best to choose the Advancedframe Elite or the Expedition Elite kayak with a high pressure dropstitch floor.

Q. I'm tall, will I fit in to this kayak?

A. It's leg length that is key. Big feet & inside leg of over 33"-34", you will be more comfortable in the Advanced Elements Expedition Elite kayak.

Q. How much gear can I carry on this kayak?

A. Best to store gear inside, but a 25l-30l (day sack) behind the seat. Plus more on the upper front or rear deck.

Q. How do I inflate my kayak?

A. You will need to buy an Advanced Elements pump which is supplied with the correct adaptors for your Advanced Elements kayak.
