HAWT - Hot Air Welding Tech

With glue alone the durability limit of inflatable kayaks is reached comparatively quickly. That is why the seams of all Da Vinci kayaks are sewn welded with hot air. The PVC melted by HAWT (Hot Air Welding Tech) reinforces the seam line taped over with glue and prevented a possible escape of air. A dropstitch kayak made with both glue and welding lasts longer and is safer.

Rigid hard shells for improved hydrodynamics

Thanks to the V-shaped underwater hull designed on the computer and the ABS hard-shell tips at the bow and stern, the inflatable kayak has a exceptionally good gliding behavior, excellent directional stability, improved flow. All this made possible easier and faster paddling.

 

The robust hard shells protect the kayak on the bank, cut the waves optimally while paddling and guarantee that Driving experience of a composite kayak.

 

Various attachments such as stainless steel eyebolts can be mounted on special stainless steel adapters in the PVC tips at the bow.

The wedge-shaped construction reduces susceptibility to wind  of the kayak and offers at the same time more space. The Da Vinci Air kayak is filled with 10 PSI pressure dimensionally stable like a hard-shell kayak.

The hull is extremely resistant to external impacts as well UV and salt water resistant.

The first 100% dropstitch kayak with removable floor
