The Innova Swing Tandem kayak is decked (sit-in-side) inflatable with handsome lines that cut through the water perfectly. Swing kayaks inflate in about 5 minutes and easily dry off and pack away. The Swing II uses an efficient tubeless system. The hulls are made of rip-stop polyester fabric, rubber-coated on the interior for air-retention, and Teflon treated on the outside for water repellency and stain resistance. The seams are vulcanized and permanently bonded. Each chamber is individually tested at the factory for air retention. The Swing is inherently light, but it also inflates to a higher pressure than competing bladder kayaks (3-psi vs 2-psi). The higher pressure means that the Swing is stiffer in rough water and have snappier paddling performance. The Swing’s decks are urethane-coated with zippered access for gear storage and cleaning ease. The decks shed water quickly and easily. The deck support system uses aluminum arches fore and aft of the cockpit openings. These arches are set crosswise and provide a deck shape and structure. The arches contribute to the stiffness of the Swing for paddling in rough water. These arches can be removed easily for a compact folded package, or left in the kayak for a slightly larger folded size. The decks have fore-and-aft zippers for ease of gear access and cleaning the boat. The aft zippered deck opens completely in two flaps for full access. Each deck is provided with gear bungees. The Swing has carrying handles on each ends. An optional spray skirt is available for the Swing cockpits. The Swing II kayak is divided into three separate air chambers for safety. The valves are set flush with the fabric surface. A pressure relief valve is installed in the kayak floor chamber to relieve possible overpressure. Setup time with a manual pump is about 5 minutes. An optional spray skirt is available for the Swing cockpits. Swing cockpit rims have been stiffened for improved spray skirt attachment.
