Frequently bought together
Bestway Hydro-Force Lite-Rapid X2 Inflatable Kayak is perfect for adventures on rivers and streams, fishing expeditions, and the family day's out to the lake. With the right conditions and experience, you can take this inflatable canoe almost anywhere. Being an inflatable kayak, the Lite-Rapid X2 blow-up boat is light and easy to carry to the water. And when you've finished, the quick inflate/deflate valve means you can fold the inflatable canoe down nice and small again, making storage and transport so easy, no need for roof racks. The inflatable canoe includes two lightweight aluminium oars. The paddles are 2.18 metre long, with a double-bladed design, so you can row on both sides of the boat. Perfect for a single paddler, the other passenger can sit back and enjoy the scenery going by.

This inflatable kayak is supplied in a large branded box that contains the kayak, two collapsable double-ended oars, 4 drip rings, a small plastic keel (Skeg), two inflatable seats, securing ropes, and instructions. There is no pump or lifejackets in the package but everything else is there. It is made from strong vinyl and is large enough to accommodate one or two adults when inflated up to 160kg which looks realistic.
It is far easier to store and transport than a traditional kayak or canoe as it is inflatable and while it is not as durable it is fine for casual use and messing around on the water. It is easy to inflate although you will require a pump with suitable fixings, not a problem for me as I have one and they are cheap on Amazon. It is quite substantial when inflated measuring about 9 foot long and 3 foot wide. The oars are sturdy and are supplied with drip rings and while they could be a little longer are fine for casual use.
It tracks well in the water with the skeg helping this and while you would not want to use it on rough water or during high winds it feels stable on our local river The Hamble. There is a ridge on top where the sides are sealed that can be uncomfortable but you can avoid it with practice and the seats are a bit flimsy but this is a workable kayak for 2 people costing £80 and is fine for river use. There were no leaks when I left it overnight and it is a generous size for one person and has sufficient room for myself as a 6 footer and my 5-foot 4-inch wife to enjoy it together. The drip rings on the oars could be bigger and you will get splashed but overall we had great fun with it and found it easy to deflate and pack away in the car when we finished.
This is a great way to find out if kayaking is for you without spending too much money. It is well made compared with others at this price point and includes the essentials apart from a pump. Just make sure you don't overpay!
The Good stuff: inflates very quickly using the supplied hand pump. It feels pretty solid and is somewhere between a Lilo and an inflatable paddle board. Deflates easily and is a small package when folded up. The inflatable seats work and are relatively comfortable.
The Bad Stuff: The supplied keel fin doesn't seem to help in keeping the kayak pointing in the direction you want to go. The supplied Oars are great at keeping water in them and then transferring the water into the Kayak. If it's windy be prepared to go round in circles...lots !
As a solo kayak, very difficult to control. With two, much easier.
In conclusion: Passable on calm inland waters, pools. But it still is a lot of fun ...and a good workout going solo.
