Notable Features

The Intex Explorer K2 is made with rugged vinyl construction which helps alleviate any concerns around the kayak puncturing. In addition, the two chamber design ensures that if one portion of the kayak is punctured you will still stay afloat.

A removable skeg is another feature of the Intext Explorer K2 that will help you control and maneuver easier in an inflatable kayak. Also, the I-Beam floor design provides rigidity that might be lost in other inflatable kayaks.

Most notably, the kayak’s quick inflation and deflation make it attractive to those that do not have a car that can transport a rigid kayak. Once deflated and compressed it is small enough to fit in the trunk of a car.

Kayak Usage

The Intext Explorer K2 Kayak should primarily be used on lakes or calm rivers. We do not recommend bringing the kayak into the ocean or rapids due to the possibility of capsizing or puncturing the kayak with a sharp rock.

In addition, the adjustable seats make it great for people of all heights which can make it attractive to families who want to paddle together. For less than $200 you could bring a family of four kayaking with just two Intext Explorer K2 kayaks.

Anything else?

Another thing to consider if you plan on purchasing the Intext Explorer K2 is to buy addition paddles. The paddles that come with the Intext Explorer K2 are not adjustable and can be too long for kids or too long for adults. Considering the price of the kayak we think it’s worth taking a look at some adjustable paddles on the market.
