New Limited Edition Expedition LTD Inflatable Touring Kayak from Advanced Elements

At last summer’s Outdoor Retailer Show, Advanced Elements of Benicia, California, unveiled two limited edition inflatable kayaks models being introduced in 2015. The new 13 ft limited edition AE1009-LTD Expedition LTD touring kayak is in transit and scheduled to be available 4/10/10.

The Expedition LTD features a major color redesign, as well as some innovative design changes. Now in an Ocean Blue with orange graphics, the Expedition LTD sports a sleeker silhouette with integrated storage. A new “deck lift” – consisting of an aluminum bar – works in conjunction with the current integrated inflatable deck lifts, to create a sculpted look with more knee/legroom as well as shedding accumulated water.  A rear integrated storage hatch with rolltop closure provides easy access to paddling gear. Velcro paddle holders are standard as well as new d-rings, making it easier to attach gear.

A new integrated “pressure relief valve” ensures the floor is not over-inflated. Set at 1 PSI, the relief valve releases enough air to maintain 1 PSI when pumping it up, or if left in the hot sun.

MSRP is $749. For more details or to purchase, visit the Expedition LTD product page at

The  second new model – the 10.5 foot AdvancedFrame LTD – should be available in late April/early May, in limited quantities.

    • I agree Rick, it’s a beautiful kayak.
