Intex Challenger K1 - complete package inflatable kayak

Intex Challenger K1 Review

The Intex Challenger K1 is a great inflatable kayak for older kids and adults. It's lightweight, has an affordable (cheap) price tag and offers great fun! Being a beginner kayak, it's obviously not as durable and rigid as the high-end inflatable kayaks like the Advanced Elements and Sea Eagle models but it's not fair to compare these to the Challenger K1. The Intex Challenger K2 is the 2-Persons version.
