Narrower, faster, stiffer (cue the Six Million Dollar Man music). That's the storyline behind the new Swing EX from Innova, a 13'6" inflatable kayak that holds more gear and offers even better performance than its cousin, the proven and popular Swing I. Reaching a comfortable cruising speed 3 to 3.5 knots with surprisingly little effort, the Swing EX is designed for multi-day touring and taking everything Mother Nature can throw at it. Bombproof, PVC-free vulcanized rubber construction offers higher tube pressure for enhanced rigidity, as well as a hull that tips the scales at just 29 lbs. Get in the swing of things by getting in the Swing EX. ($999)
