The Sea Eagle 393RL (one person) and 473RL (two person) Razorlite
inflatable kayaks were introduced last
summer. Sea Eagle was the first company
that produced a boat that was completely made with drop stitch
construction. This manufacturing method
evolved. Drop stitch construction was first introduced in paddleboats. The
boards could be made so stiff that they were nearly as rigid as a solid wood or
fiberglass board. Then drop stitch was used as floors in boats. The extra rigidity
offered better performance. Now thanks to Sea Eagle kayaks and canoes can be
made completely of drop stitch construction. The Sea Eagle 393rl & 473rl
Razorlites are compact when deflated but when they are inflated, they do not
look like an inflatable kayak. You might think they are a hard body boat. The
side and bottom are so rigid you cannot make them bend. In fact, they offer nearly
the same performance as a hard body.
The kayak has a razor-sharp, tapered, hard nose bow and stern all combined with fully constructed Drop Stith construction. It cuts through water straighter than any other kayak with speeds up to 6 miles per hour.
The boat has many special features.
The first obviously is the Drop Stitch construction combined with a molded bow and stern shaped for speed.
This year Sea Eagle has added an Adjustable FlexBrace Footrest with 20 different positions. We have not seen anything like this on any other inflatable kayak. It is unique to the 393rl & 473rl Razorlite kayaks. The Flexbrace are fully adjustable that will provide hours of comfortable bracing.
When we were first introduced to these boats we thought that
it being a high end product they would sell in limited numbers. We were wrong.
These kayaks are selling well beyond our expectations. It seems the more people
that buy they, give positive reviews, create more interest and sales in these
So, if you are interested in an inflatable kayak check out
the Sea Eagle 393rl & 473rl inflatable kayaks. You get a top-quality kayak
with a full 3 year warranty that is comparable to any hard body kayak.
The TC16 is a canoe with a similar construction to the Razorlite kayaks.
Due to its high-performance characteristics and design it is only recommended for intermediate and above paddlers.If you had any experiences with these kayaks or canoe please post your comments. Thank you.
