Gumotex Twist 1


The Gumotex Twist 1 is a lightweight durable inflatable solo kayak. Easy to paddle wheather a begginer or an intermediate looking for a stable craft, or an expert paddler wanting something light and easy to paddle.


The Twist 1 is perfect for paddling on rivers, lakes and calm gentle seas and esturies however should you come across some mild whitewater the Twist 1 will also deal with that no problems.


Made from the brillaint Nitrilon material, the Twist 1 is not only light but its durable, easily washable, quick to dry (unlike other inflatables made from nylon) and built to last. Quick and easy to inflat with three inflation points on the kayak itself and 2 on the seat and footrest.


The seat provides enough comfort for both day trips and expedition paddling and the additiion of the footrest allows the paddler to keep a good paddling posture to get the best drive from the paddle. The Twist 1 also has a bungee area behind the seat for storing your dry bag.
