THE NEW OUTFITTER VERSION WITH THE UPGRADED 1.2MM PVC DROP STITCH FLOOR AND 1.5MM PVC BOTTOM PROTECTION COVERING IS NOW AVAILABLE ($200 VALUE). THE OUTFITTER FLOOR TECHNOLOGY AND MATERIAL THICKNESS COMBINES FOR THE MOST RIGID INFLATABLE KAYAK FLOOR ON THE MARKET AT OVER 10 PSI!
Our newest 13' Saturn Whitewater Kayaks just arrived and now come with upgraded Leafield C7 Valves ($80 Value), our 1.5mm thick PVC "Alaska Series" bottom protection for the side tubes and floor, and upgraded accessories. In addition, we've kept our pricepoint the same for 2018 to celebrate the 10 year annivesary of this award winning product. You simply won't find a tandem inflatable kayak on the marketplace the represents the value you get with the new 13' Saturn WW Kayak. Optional high-back foam seats are also available ($100 for a pair) and are recommended for whitewater kayak conditions due to their lower profile.
The "Outfitter" upgrade option provides a second layer of interwoven PVC into the material of the dropstitch floor improving the overall thickness over 50%. It was design for the everyday use by outfitters and guides but is a great option for those looking for some added protection in the area where most of the wear occurs.
Simply put, these kayaks continue to be the best value on the inflatable whitewater kayak market today and won rave reviews in an outdoor magazine article in 2016. We continue to hear amazing stories of customers using them on remote expeditions, 70-mile canyon kayaking trips, as their preferred craft running Class IV+ whitewater, and even as a comfortable bed during multi-day canyon floats. Rated for commercial use our 13' Saturn Whitewater Kayak is ready for Class IV and larger rapids anywhere on the globe. This is a professional grade self-bailing kayak ready for the extreme adventurer looking to handle big whitewater. The 13’ length and 6” high-pressure inflatable air deck floor provide the perfect combination to accommodate 2 adults. Our new cold welded technology and material improvements provide a floor pressure rating over 10 psi (that's nearly 3 times the average in the industry and the most rigid floor in the inflatable market).
Saturn whitewater inflatable kayaks are highly rugged, extremely sturdy, will rival the performance of a hard-shelled kayak and provide the added convenience of being very portable and easily stored. The 13' Saturn Whitewater Kayak is perfect for someone that wants to take their kayak hiking, traveling or camping as well as be able to store it in a closet or throw in the trunk of a car. They offer supreme convenience, versatility and fun.
This inflatable kayak is made of the same heavy-duty 1100 Dtex PVC as our Saturn whitewater rafts with an extra 1.5mm PVC layer covering the entire bottom surface area. The floor is made of a 6" thick high-pressure air deck that is extremely rigid when inflated, but can be rolled up when deflated. The floor thickness is the same as the air deck floor design in our Saturn Whitewater Rafts. The 13' Saturn Whitewater Kayak comes with multiple pre-installed heavy-duty D-rings to easily accomodate different seating positions for the highback kayak seats (optional) and give you greater flexibility when paddling with 1-2 passengers.
What makes this kayak different from our Expedition series kayaks is the self-bailing capability and our industry leading 6" thick dropstitch floor. This design is a must for river conditions and also provides much greater capacity. Our Expedition kayaks have a 2" thick floor without the holes in the bottom for self bailing. If you're going to be taking on water during your use you'll need the self-bailing feature of the whitewater kayak.
We are also a full NRS dealer and can provide kayak package discounts including kayak paddles, helmets, PFD's, and other gear. Call us for custom package quotes at (800) 217-3270.

I am late in writing to you, but wanted to say thanks for the Bomber IK. Our family has 2 of them now plus a 15' Whitewater Raft (pictured in 2011 Contest Winner Photo). We love our boats and have had numerous epic trips (Wild Scenic Rogue, various runs on the American, etc.). The attached photos are from a recent run on the American River (Satan's Cesspool in the Gorge). Thanks again for the quality boats... Brian
