Intex Explorer K2 Kayak, 2-Person Inflatable Kayak Set Features
Once you purchase the kayak, it already comes complete with all other accessories needed to set out on the water.
The Intex Double Quick II is a speedy hand pump that helps you inflate the kayak in good time. When not in use, you can securely stow away the deflated kayak in the accompanying storage duffle bag.
Likewise, you can also treat it for damages using the free repair patch and consult the owner’s manual for any other issues. Finally, the kayak would be useless without any paddles. That’s why there are two 86 inch paddles made of aluminum included.
Durability and a Skeg
The Intex Explorer K2 is surprisingly durable considering its price. 30 gauge vinyl is utilized in a rugged construction to ensure maximum durability.
The inflatable I-beam helps add to the rigidity of the kayak while directional stability is further improved by a removable skeg. Additionally, both ends of the kayak are fitted with grab lines for added security, and to easily lift around.
The kayak is hard to miss out in the water with its sporty graphics and a bright yellow design.
There are 2 inflatable seats accompanying the kayak. These are secured to the kayak with the help of Velcro strips. This makes it not only removable but also somewhat adjustable.
Intex Explorer K2 Kayak, 2-Person Inflatable Kayak Set Conclusion
- Competitive pricing
- Great for light ‘non-serious’ kayaking
- Includes accessories to get you going
- Upon purchasing the product, you will need to test it pretty quick, as it has a relatively short warranty coverage – only 90 days!.
- Only 2 air chambers
The Intex Explorer K2 is a highly rated low-end kayak for a reason. Its attractive price coupled with the included accessories make it a great find.
We recommend you don’t venture from land too far, unless a competent swimmer. It has two air chambers. So, if you get a puncture while out paddling, it will ‘half’ stay afloat.
Of course, it won’t track as well as more expensive kayaks on the market. Nor will it break any speed records! But if you want a basic kayak for a little bit of family fun, and you don’t want to break the bank, the K2 Explorer is worth a look.
