Features of The Sea Eagle 420x Inflatable Kayak with Pro Package
Now that you are done with the short intro above, you are expecting some rough and tumble features that will blow your mind. I will not disappoint you, here are the top features of the Sea Eagle 420x.
Wet And Dry Abilities
There are two major types of kayaks on the market. There is the dry-only kayak which has zero drains; this is a bother to dry when water enters. There is another type, wet-only kayak with perpetually open drains; this will leave you constantly wet.
The 420x is a combination of both kayaks, with four huge convertible and self-bailing drain valves, which will modify themselves to depend on whether the conditions are wet or dry.
When you are blazing through rough oceans or whitewater conditions, the drains will remain open so that the kayak can get rid of any water that comes in.
When you find yourself in calmer conditions, the drains will close so that you and your gear do not get soaked by any water.
And in the rare case that the kayak gets filled to the brim with water, the 420x will still manage to remain afloat until the water has been drained.
Sea Eagle 420x is made of durable 1000-denier high-pressure reinforced polyester, with electronically welded quadruple overlap seams.
Furthermore, the 420x has an outside fabric floor which sits beneath a drop stitch floor with I-beam construction. This kayak can accommodate a maximum of 855-pound weight capacity. This means that it can hold up to three adults together with their gear including your dog.
This rigid construction means that the 420x can withstand any pressure that comes its way; therefore, no sharp or rough object will rip it to shreds. Go ahead and stab it with a sharp screw driver, and witness its superior resistance.
The outside floor can be removed for thorough cleaning.
To maximize your convenience as you ride over rapids and rough water, the Sea Eagle 420x has integrated several features that will make your ride all the more pleasant.
These features include bow and stern spray skirts, rope lacing for securing your gear, 2 tall back seats for prominent back support; 2 stow bags, 2 8-foot high-performance AB40 double-ended paddles, a repair kit, and an inflation pump.
Additionally, the 420x has a removable skeg which can be eliminated in whitewaters and included in flatwater for improved efficiency and tracking ability.
