Bic Sports – New 2010 Products for Bic Inflatable Kayaks

Bic Sports is coming out with a new Lite model to complement their Yakkair inflatable kayak line, which debuted in 2009.

The Bic Yakkair Lite Single, and Yakkair Lite Tandem, are streamlined versions of the current model, with a lower MSRP. The YAKKAir Lite is aimed specifically at coastal paddling close to the beach, for rivers and for other inland waters. The retail price has been reduced by making the foot brace optional, removing the inflatable keel, and using a PVC lower-pressure floor cushion rather than the expensive hi-pressure floor found in the standard Yakkairs. MSRP will be $599 for the single, and $799 for the double.

Bic Sports is also introducing two new accessories: a deck cover, and an optional adjustable foot brace.

The deck cover will be available for both the single and double models, and works with both the standard Yakkair, and the Lite version. MSRP is $39.95 (single version) and $79.95 (double version, shown in photo).  Features include a flexible protective cover made from tough, coated cordura fabric, stretched to shape with fiberglass battens.

The adjustable foot brace – a standard accessory with the Yakkair line – is available as an option for the Lite models. MSRP is $24.95.

The new 2010 products should be available late spring. For further details/updates, visit http://www.airkayaks.com/bic.html, where new info will be posted.
