Natural Rubber Fabric

The Innova Twist and Double Twist are among the company’s best sellers and customer reviews agree that these are exceptional inflatable kayaks. They are stable and easy to handle in a variety of flatwater conditions. A Twist is small enough to fit in your car or RV, the cockpit locker of your boat, or pack down into one bag to take on an airplane.

Innova Double Twist Kayak

These recreational kayaks are made of LitePack™, a rip-stop polyester fabric with a coating of natural rubbers on the interior for great air retention. The coating is Nitrylon, a lamination of nitrile synthetic rubber and natural rubber, which is stretched over the 1,200-denier fabric. This combination performs well even in very cold weather and is more abrasion resistant than PVC. Innova Twist inflatable kayaks are made to be PVC-free as PolyVinyl Chloride (PVC) gives off dioxins that are associated with certain health and environmental issues.

Note: On Earth Day 2010, Innova launched the first inflatable kayak and canoe recycling program in the industry. If you have an older model Innova that you would like to recycle, contact them on how and where to return it so it can be turned into rubber mulch.

Expect Durable Quality and Great Performance

The Innova Twist inflatable kayaks track beautifully on flatwater with the skeg in place. They are quick to inflate or deflate, and you will like the new camo color (we haven’t heard if they are going to bring back the yellow hull). You won’t have to worry about popping an air chamber, thanks to the rugged rubber-coated surface on the bottom, but with the lightweight fabric, these inflatable models can easily be carried to the water’s edge – no dragging needed. If you are looking for a fun recreational kayak from a respected manufacturer, the Innova Twist is a good choice.
