ZelGear Inflatable Kayaks

Competitively priced high quality inflatable kayaks. Made by the specialist builders of white water catarafts, using the same tough grade PVC and high quality valves - the kayaks are robustly built to last.

There are two main series in the inflatable casual / touring kayak range - 'A' and 'Igla' Series, and a recently introduced ZelGear One whitewater kayak.

'A' Series are casual touring / fishing / photography stable type of boat The 'A' Series are more agile and are able to turn quicker
than the Igla Series boats, whilst is still capable of reaching at least 20km a day with "average" paddlers.
- have larger side tubes, more buoyancy
- rounded bow and stern end caps
- wider beam (width)

Igla ("Needle") Series are the faster and more streamlined kayaks of the two series - ideally suitable for long distance / straight line / speed paddling. The Igla Series boats have a stiffer boat design and incorporate innovative frame pieces in the boat structure especially in the bow and stern - the pointed ends produces a similar streamlined behavior to that of the folding / touring kayaks. Speed is around 6km/hr on leisurely paddles, and up to 7.5km/hr in marathon mode.
- have narrower side tubes, more volumetric space
- stiffened touring kayak shaped bow and stern
- narrower beam (width)
Eskimo rolls have and can be done on the Igla-1 & 2.

Both A and Igla Series boats have a slightly larger central inflatable tube, creating convex hulls and have hard wearing PVC for the hull - same grade material as used for the white water catarafts. Both series (Except Junior) can be used up to Grade 1-2 rapids. A skeg can be easily fitted on the A and Igla Series boats, which aids in keeping the boat moving in a straight direction. Full cover spray decks are available as optional extra.

Whitewater ZelGear ONE ("Slivka") A lightweight self bailing inflatable whitewater kayak with a very stiff "Airboard" drop stitch floor that packs into a backpack. Easy to transport overland on your back and inflate by the riverside.


All kayaks range between 5 to 15 minutes to inflate and weigh between 9 to 29 kg depending on the model and type of pump used. The boats are fitted with automatic air release / safety valves so it is not possible to accidentally over inflate and do damage.
