The future of inflatable kayaks.


I was after a high quality inflatable kayak and after what I thought was a thorough search and assessment of the tube wall style kayaks, I wondered why SUP drop stitch technology was not being used. Then by accident I discovered the KXOne Slider range with exactly that. Drop stitch floor and walls with many advantages as a result. Fast, sleek, agile, convenient. Great boat. Everything I was after so highly recommended.

Hi there. Thanks for your review. I'm considering one. Since you've had it for a little while now and had time to give it a good run.. any problems ..issues.. still highly recommend it? Cheers.

I have had a little bit of wear on one of the fold parts where it folds up and I am keeping an eye on it with a mind to putting a transparent patch on it but it will only need a little 20 cent sized piece. Other than that, everything has been very resilient. I still rave about it . . . . the portability is fantastic. I recently returned from a trip to Coongie Lakes in SA just north of Innamincka and the ability to have it tucked up in a roof rack bag out of the sun and dirt of a 4WD desert road trip was a big plus. The lakes were quite shallow so I removed the skeg and was amazed at how shallow I could continue in it, and still the tracking was very good. Similarly I am about to head to Tasmania for 3 weeks and again, rolled up within the vehicle is secure and maintains its condition. Best of all . . . lightweight. Mates have much heavier ones. I can manhandle the 15kg Slider easily and more importantly, will be able to continue with that as I get older and more of a wuss. I keep it in the back canopy of my ute and it gets a lot of "spur of the moment" use. I still highly recommend it as a versatile and rugged little unit. I guess the key answer . . . . I still look at my Slider as one of the best buys I have made in years as it has fulfilled all my expectations and also matched the claims of the ads when I was researching higher quality inflatable boats. There's plenty of rubbish cheapies out there, but I remain impressed and happy. If I lost it somehow I'd go out and buy a replacement Slider tomorrow.


Thank you very much for your detailed reply. Cheers

Hi. Can you please tell me how much time does it take in real time for full inflating?
