TECHNICAL INFORMATION
What are the dimensions? What weight?

"When the kayak is inflated:
> Length: 380 cm
> Width: 64 cm
When stored in its bag:
> Height: 94 cm
> Width: 50 cm
> Thickness: 27 cm
> full weight: 18 kg (16 for the kayak + 2 for the bag)"

An innovation, and a patent filed!

The initial idea? Design our dream kayak: A powerful inflatable kayak that can be taken everywhere in its backpack, in short: Freedom! To achieve this, it took 30 months of study and development, and 7 prototypes, which we call "monsters". The main challenge: Provide rigidity and performance to an inflatable kayak. And was the unique cut and piecing together of the material that we patented.

Why an inflatable rigid kayak?

"We listened to the kayakers' feedback: "I am a high-level kayaker and I would like an inflatable kayak that has the same performance as a rigid kayak". "I want to go kayaking, and get there by public transport." "Inflatable kayaks are nice, but I want a kayak that goes fast!"
Therefore, we needed to design an easily transportable, high performance kayak, in short we had to innovate.

Marc Ronet, naval architect tells us of his adventure with DECATHLON:

"I got involved to define the general geometry of the kayak, and its overall balance. When the Itiwit team called me, I was surprised but highly interested. And it also played on our shared passion for kayaking. We were able to share our respective knowledge. It was a great experience! "

Why the name "Kayak X500 DropStitch"?

"Dropstitch" is a material Two layers of PVC are connected by thousands of polyester threads. During high pressure inflation, these filaments tend to stretch and create a rigid volume. This prevents the kayak from deforming.
This is what makes our inflatable kayak extremely rigid but easy to store in a large backpack once deflated.

How is the design worked?

True team work between the engineer, the architect, and the product manager. Emmanuelle designed the product according to its technical specifications. Its functional lines should be pointed out. The dark gray part corresponds to the paddling area, light gray is for loading, and orange is for visibility.

How to inflate and set-up the kayak?

"1. Inflate the main chamber (floor), then the medium chambers (sides), followed by the small chambers (arches). All volumes are inflated to 10 PSI max (0.7 bar).
2. Insert the footrests onto the soft guides, push them inside the kayak and use the buckle to adjust the length to fit your leg.
3. Position the seat by fitting it onto the shims provided.
4. Place the backrest under the coaming.
We recommend the HP Itiwit double action hand pump (8387655), not supplied."

How to disassemble and deflate the kayak?

"You'll see, it's rather simple!
1. Make sure that the surface you intend to fold the kayak on is clean.
2. Remove the seat.
3. Remove the footrests
4. Deflate the kayak by removing the cap and pressing the valve. Leave the valve in the open position so that the air escapes.
5. Tuck in the hatch and start folding lengthways."

How to fold it for storage in the bag?

"1. We recommend placing the canvas of the bridge within the fold.
2. Fold the keel the entire length. This fold ensures that the width of the kayak is the same as that of the bag.
3. Fold each end towards the inside of the kayak and line up the ends with the Itiwit logo.
4. Slot the seat in the last fold of the kayak and finish expelling air from the kayak by pressing on it.
5. Finishing step: Strap the kayak. A good strapping helps you to store it more easily in the bag."

And what if the kayak is punctured?

"It would take something sharp to make that happen. If so, the kayak is composed of 5 independent "air chambers". 1 or 2 of punctures? The kayak floats enough to make it back to the shore safely.
To preserve the life expectancy of your kayak, we advise you to avoid contact with oyster shells and sharp reefs."

The team shares their tips for your comfort...

"Olivier is in charge of inventory at Itiwit. Like the rest of the team, he is passionate about kayaking. His advice: "To take full advantage, really take the time to sit down in the middle, to balance yourself, and adjust your footrest. Once comfortable, you can take off."
Nico is a product engineer, his favourite thing is to always take dry clothes along in a small waterproof bag. You can store the bag in the front of the kayak for easy access."

What does the kayak bag contain?

"The kit includes:
- The backpack
- the kayak
- the seat
- the footrest
- a repair kit
It does not contain a skirt. The kayak is compatible with the Itiwit skirt code: 8543915."
