Raft Inflatable Kayak Cataraft Free Shipping

The AIRE Super Lynx Inflatable Kayak, 46 lbs, was built to fill the gap between the regular Lynx K2 whitewater inflatable kayak and the longer, rudder equipped Sea Tiger model. The Super Lynx meets the demand for a decent touring boat that can also run moderate rivers, while also providing enough space to hold overnight camp gear (or even multi-day camping supplies if both if you are of moderate to short stature), a child, or a big dog with it's 14' length - something the shorter whitewater models are hard pressed to do. All Super Lynx kayaks now feature a bolt-less removable aluminum tracking fin.

AIRE Super Lynx Inflatable Kayak a Best Seller

The Super Lynx inflatable kayak is one of our best selling AIRE boats and has redesigned a couple times over the last ten or twelve years. Instead of the left and right tube being separate entities like early Superlynxs had, they are now one continuous hull like the main section of a raft. The tubes still taper at the ends, but they no longer diminish to a point. Instead, the left bladder runs through the front and one third of the way back along the right side, and vice-versa for the right bladder. This helps float the boat in a more paddle-able shape should you puncture one area - though with the toughness of AIRE's outer shell that is pretty unlikely. This configuration also gives the boat a much more sexy look, and means that the front end will have higher rigidity for punching big ocean (or river) waves.

The floor is very thick from top to bottom, so Super Lynx's have phenomenal weight capacities for self-bailers. When AIRE came out with this model around 1993, the very first customer to buy one from us put four adults (whom he estimated totaled 600 lbs.) in one without swamping. Pretty amazing, considering some small self-bailing rafts with much larger tubes can barely do this. The current model probably should not be loaded with more than 525 pounds, which is still plenty of payload.

Sleek AIRE Superlynx Inflatable Kayak

The sleek, low-slung ends have very little wind resistance, and because AIRE seats are repositionable you can use the boat solo or tandem with equal ease, and you can even purchase a third seat for a child under our Kayak Accessory section if you wish. As mentioned in the first paragraph, AIRE finally added a removable tracking fin this year, the same one used on their zippy Sawtooth kayak. The hull speed of the Super Lynx is at least as good as the Sea Tiger, and in our opinion, it's a bit better. A few other inflatables in the fourteen foot range, like the Soar canoes and New Zealand made Incept C42 tend to be much wider, slower, and heavier than the Super Lynx.

If you like AIRE's products but feel the Super Lynx is priced a bit high, it's worth looking into the Strike 2 in our Tandem IK section. The Strike 2 is fairly quick as well, though it won't hold overnight gear with two people on board.

Super Lynx Pricing includes free ground and any accessories you need with your boat are 10% off. Our shopping cart does NOT reflect these discounts or the free UPS - it will show a higher total so we will adjust the bottom line before ringing the transaction through.
