Materials Used in Construction

The AIRE Sawtooth kayaks feature a rugged 31-oz 900-denier tube fabric and 900-denier floor fabric, with a PVC-coated outer shell. The kayaks have self-bailing AIRE floors, three air chambers with Summit II valves, and comfortable seating that can be positioned anywhere in the cockpit.

The bright yellow kayak at 13' works well as a solo boat but can be configured for a second paddler. With the unique V-hull design, ribbed air floor, bottom fin, and a beam of 32", the Sawtooth is considered by many water enthusiasts to be faster than the Innova Sunny.

The Sawtooth 2 inflatable kayak ($875) is ideal for two paddlers and their gear to explore flat water lakes and calm rivers. Both models are extremely comfortable, not just for paddling, but for relaxing and soaking up the sun.

Feedback from Current Owners

The only negative observation made in reviews on the Sawtooth is that, because it is made in China (other AIRE models are made in the USA), it is backed by only a one-year warranty. Despite any initial fears that it isn’t as well-made as its sibling models, the AIRE Sawtooth inflatable kayak has good quality for its $775 price tag, and sets itself apart with its unusual speed.

What We Say

It is a bit heavy to transport the 42-lb Sawtooth to the water, but if that doesn’t sound like an issue then you’ll enjoy everything else about this great kayak. While it doesn’t have the same high quality construction as an US-made AIRE craft this is a nice budget kayak that tracks well, offers great speed, and has plenty of cargo space. If you don’t want to spend a lot on a craft, especially if you aren’t on the water frequently, the AIRE Sawtooth inflatable kayak is a decent choice.
