The new YAKKAir Full HP 1 and 2 reveal significant advances in the design of inflatable kayaks, with a panelled structure using the new Drop Stitch technology. These high-pressure inflated, rock-solid panels, assembled around pre-formed bow and stern elements, combine to create an ultra-rigid, high-performance kayak. A new revolution in inflatables....
BIC Kayaks has sent a prototype of its brand new YAKKAir Full HP 1 to the AKTA expedition team so they can test it under extreme Arctic conditions.
YAKKAir Full HPs come with quality fittings as standard : comfortable, ergonomic seats with high back rests to give proper back support. Strap-mounted, adjustable foot rests are the other vital element for maximum paddle comfort on your longest excursions.
YAKKAir Full HPs come with the following accessories : carry bag, high-pressure pump with pressure gauge, 1 repair kit, removable fin, 1 or 2 seats, 1 or 2 foot rests (depending on model purchased).

The YAKKAir Full HP 1 and 2 are the first ever inflatable kayaks to be 100% manufactured using high-pressure Drop Stitch technology. This technique that has already proved itself in many other fields has enabled us to manufacture ultra-light, ultra-rigid, ultra-tough inflatables with performance similar to any rigid Sit-On-Top.
1- bottom floor made of Drop Stitch material
2- Side air chambers made of Drop Stitch material
3- Reinforced PVC skin on the hull
Apart from the innovative construction, the YAKKAir Full HPs have plenty of other tricks up their sleeve. The concept includes deep-V bow and stern mouldings that ensure great control and improved water-penetration. Manoeuvrability can be further optimised with a removable fin, fitted on the hull. They have superb glide and are made for easy-paddling. The narrower lateral panel sections give much more storage space inside than with the previous rounder panels. The more open cockpit design makes re-mounting much easier. And the bung at the stern makes it easy to empty after use.
- Tough, durable, compact and lightweight = easy to pack and transport
- Great speed and gliding= similar to a hard-shell kayak
- Side chambers and bottom floor made of dropstitch fabric = higher strength, high-pressure inflation, durability, and abrasion resistance.
- Molded V-shaped form under bow and stern made of rigid, durable material = better tracking, easier paddling and higher speed.
- Adjustable seats provide excellent back support and comfort.
- Multiple D-rings = allow seat adjustments for one or two persons.
- Detachable large skeg = keeps kayak on a straight track while paddling.
- Large drain valves for fast and easy draining of the kayak
