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 three distinct series in the inflatable casual / touring kayak range and a white water series of kayaks.

'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)
'A' Series now DISCONTINUED - FEW LEFT

Alpha-Z Series is the successor to the A Series with the main difference being the incorporation of an "AirBoard" drop stitch floor and the adoption of the bow design as used in the Needle Series. The AirBoard makes the kayak stiffer so that there is no flexing of the boat when going through and over waves. The stern is squarish, not pointy.

Needle ("Igla") Series are the faster and more streamlined kayaks of the touring series - ideally suitable for long distance / straight line / speed paddling. The Igla Series boats have a stiffer boat design and incorporate innovative frame pieces integrated inside 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 Needle-1 & 2.

Whitewater Series currently has one model available - "The ONE", with the next ww kayak called "MarK-1" scheduled to out late 2018. The ONE is a lightweight self-bailing inflatable whitewater kayak with a very stiff "Airboard" drop stitch floor. Easy to transport overland deflated in the backpack and inflate by the riverside or as inflated using the thigh straps as shoulder straps. Two versions - Standard and Expedition. MarK-1 is more refined than the ONE.


The A and Needle (Igla) Series boats have a slightly larger central inflatable floor tube, creating convex hulls for linear tracking - the Alpha-Z has a flat bottom but with a pair of bow-to-stern channels. All kayaks with the exception of the WW Series comes with a removable aluminum skeg.
A, Alpha-Z and Needle Series kayaks (Except A 'Junior') can be used up to Grade 1-2 rapids. Full cover spray decks are available as optional extra (except WW kayaks).

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 on the main side air chambers so it is not possible to accidentally over inflate and do damage.
