Innovative canoe technology in a timeless design

NMMA Zertifizierung für Kanu

Your advantages with our inflatable canoe:


✔ Construction from 100% patented SCSL (TM) double layer dropstitch

Advanced Selytech V2 glue made in Germany with up to 30% higher density

Welded rails for a longer service life, conservation of resources and 100% tightness

Lower skin made of highly tear-resistant and abrasion-resistant 1,100 denier polyester (military quality)

High abrasion resistance and durabilityas well as enormous salt water and UV resistance

Removable bottom for quick cleaning and small pack size

✔ Fast assembly and disassembly, open design for easy entry and plenty of storage space

100% Patented U-Lite SCSL Double layer drop stitch
for stability and performance

The difference to comparable inflatable canoes lies primarily in the use of the new patented U-Lite dropstitch materials, which give the dropstitch canoe its extremely stable side walls.

The Da Vinci canoes are made entirely from the patented fabric manufactured and bring inflatable air canoes a new level. Three separately filled air chambers ensure extra safety.

This material allows the canoes a lot more air pressure and is also in terms of rigidity, robustness and feel hardly distinguishable from solid material. The Da Vinci canoe is very mobile (since light and inflatable) and at the same time extremely rigid and high-performance.

Due to the uniquely rigid droptitch construction, it achieves one in this area despite its low weight unparalleled power, stability and performance

ABS hard shells for improved hydrodynamics

Thanks to the V-shaped underwater hull, which was redesigned on the computer, and the ABS hard-shell tips at the bow and stern, the inflatable canoe has a exceptionally good gliding behavior, one excellent directional stability, a improved flow such as easier and faster paddling.


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


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.

Additional Floor flaps (sealing strips) on the side of the floor are attached to the side wall with Velcro to secure the reduce dirt ingress.

Directionally and dimensionally stable as a hard shell canoe

When pressure is applied, pressure develops between the removable floor and side walls 2 outer hull sections who have favourited the dropstitch Canoe extremely stable make.


The wedge-shaped construction reduces susceptibility to wind  of the Air Canoe while providing more space. This is how it is filled with 10 PSI pressure dimensionally stable like a hard shell canoe.

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