Aquaglide Deschutes 130 1 Person Inflatable Kayak
The Deschutes is a new model for Aquaglide and this 13ft version is ideal for solo paddlers looking for additional leg room or storage. The tapered bow and flat rocker make it an efficient cruiser. Aquaglide are always pushing technical development and the Deschutes is no exception, using high pressure sides with a foam floor. This creates excellent performance but with minimal pack size and weight.
Named after the famous Deschutes river in Oregon, the Deschutes series of kayaks fly on flat water with a flat rocker. They are as rugged and diverse as the river after which they are named.

Built with cutting edge technology and EVA floor, the lightweight Deschutes pack smaller than almost anything else on the market for simple transport and storage. Their Duratex construction, combined with inflatable cross brace thwart and EVA floor, creates rigidity and lightweight efficient performance.
