Each week, we highlight companies in Canoe & Kayak's 2010 Boat Book. Today, we look at the 2010 designs of Aire. Stay tuned next week for more from our Boat Book.
MSRP $4220.00, PVC
L: 14′ 3″, W 6′ 8″, 146 lb.
The popular 143D features a diminished tube design which increases its maneuverability and gets paddlers up close and personal with the river without sacrificing stability. It is a great choice for paddle teams and the added chafe strip gives it extra durability for a frame setup.
MSRP $1450.00, PVC
L: 9′ 6″, W 36″, 32 lb.
The redesigned Force has more kick and interior room for more play boat performance. This boat is recommended for experienced kayakers looking for the stability and convenience of an inflatable with the performance characteristics of a hard shell. The cockpit is adjustable to fit a wide range of sizes.
MSRP $2099.00, PVC
L: 14′, W 6′ 6″, 71 lb.
The Ocelot is the perfect option for versatility and a top choice for big-water boaters who require both lightning fast responsiveness and load capacity. It’s flexible enough to handle gear and a passenger in big whitewater yet small enough to serve as a play boat for day trips.
AIRE Outfitter II
MSRP $1350.00, PVC
L: 12′ 5″, W 41″, 46 lb.
The Outfitter II is an excellent choice for paddlers seeking extra stability, room for two or space for a pile of gear. The 12″ diameter tubes and a low center of balance are designed to boost a paddler’s whitewater confidence and river running skills.
AIRE Super Puma
MSRP $3120.00, PVC
L: 13′ 1″, W 5′ 8″, 100 lb.
The Super Puma has a continuous curve, short waterline and narrow beam design to make it our most maneuverable 13′ raft. Its construction is ideal for whitewater performance or a fishing set up. It will hold in a tight eddy and can tackle big water.
