The largest of the versatile Explorer Series, this rugged and durable inflatable kayak weighs only 42 lbs, can handle up to Class IV rapids and is also great on the open-water. If you plan on camping, overnight trips or just plain need the extra storage space. The 420x is the kayak for you! Sea Eagle Explorer Kayaks are great wet or dry boats - they are tough enough for class four whitewater, but stable, dry and comfortable on flat-water as well. Computer-aided design and state-of-the-art fabrication (98% welded, double over lapped seams w/ 2% additional super strength reinforced glue finish) allows a reduction in weight (9-12 lbs) while greatly improving structural strength. Now with 16 super-fast self-bailing drain valves that can be left open for wet whitewater and ocean kayaking or closed for high and dry flat-water paddling. The Explorers also feature a removable slide skeg for improved tracking on open water. Pound for pound these new Explorers are champions capable of handling any type of adventure! The Pro Kayak Package includes: 420x Hull, Two 8' AB40 Paddles, Two TBS Tall Back Seats, Kayak Carry Bag, Two Kayak Stow Bags, A41 Foot Pump, Slide in Swept Back Skeg, Repair Kit and Instructions.
The Sea Eagle 420x Explorer inflatable kayak is as tough as nails and as rugged as the men and women who ride in it. A handy large kayak that holds two to three adults and up to 855 pounds, the 420x lets you rocket fearlessly down Class IV rapids, traverse miles of wilderness rivers to remote camping spots, or fly fish on trout streams that other fishermen can't access. Even better for travelers, the kayak deflates and stores in a handy carrying bag, so you easily haul it along on a small plane to impossibly obscure fishing or camping sites. There's no better kayak for true adventurers than the Sea Eagle 420x.
Unlike ordinary "dry-only" kayaks with no drains or "wet-only" kayaks with permanently open drains, the 420x offers four extra-large, easily convertible drains for both wet and dry conditions. When the drains are open, the craft bails itself in rough whitewater or ocean conditions. When the drains are closed, they won't let a drop of water in, keeping both you and your cargo comfortably dry in calm water. And even in the worst-case scenario--when your kayak is filled to the gunwales with water--the 420x still floats.
The 420x Explorer owes its durability to 1,000-denier, polyester-supported, high-pressure fabric with quadruple-thickness electronic-welded seams. How tough is the Explorer? In torture testing, Sea Eagle pounded it mercilessly with the claw of a claw hammer to no effect. Stabbing it with a screwdriver also had a negligible impact. The "crocodile hide" hull is so sturdy that it can stand up to almost any challenge, let alone a few bumps from the dock. Other details include integrated bow and stern spray skirts with water-deflecting guards; rope lacing that forms secure handholds and convenient tie-down points; two tall-back seats; two 8-foot double-ended paddles; an inflation pump; bow and stern storage bags; and a repair kit.
The 420x Explorer measures 168 by 37 inches (W x L) and weighs 54 pounds. It's also backed by a three-year warranty.
