The Innova Swing I kayak is fast and light. The Swing is a decked (sit-in-side) inflatable boat with handsome lines that cut through the water. The Swing I kayak inflates in about 5 minutes. The Swing I hull is 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, permanently bonded and factory tested.
The Swing has three separate air chambers for safety that inflate to a higher pressure (3-psi) than other IKs. The higher pressure means that the Swings are stiffer in rough water and have snappier paddling performance. 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.
The Swing I decks are urethane-coated with zippered access for gear storage and cleaning ease. 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. The 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 outfitted with gear bungees. The Swing has carrying handles on each ends. An optional spray skirt is available for the Swing cockpits. Swing cockpit rims have been stiffened for improved spray skirt attachment.
