Glide performance

The construction of the Itiwit Race 500 kayak gives it arguably the best gliding quality of any inflatable kayak. The combination of a 5-metre long boat with reinforced Dropstitch and a soft carbon stringer provides rigidity, performance and a smooth ride.

Directions for use

To prolong the lifespan of your kayak, it's preferable that you don't suck out the air with a pump during the deflation process



We recommend wearing a buoyancy aid jacket when using the kayak.

We recommend the life vest: Itiwit BA RACE, code: 8766116



This kayak is not designed for surfing breaking waves.

How to inflate and mount the kayak?

1. Inflate the main chamber (bottom), then the middle chambers. All the volumes are inflated to 10 PSI max (0.7 bar).

2. You can insert the foot bar onto the soft guides, pushing it to the setting you want, adjusting it to your leg length with the buckle. 3. Position the seat by inserting it into the soft guides until it stops

4. Insert the rudder and stretch the cables to the foot bar. Then tie knots at the foot bar pedals.

How to disassemble and deflate the kayak?

1. Make sure the folding surface is clean

2. Remove the seat

3. Remove the footrests

4. Raise the rudder

5. Deflate the kayak by removing the cap and pressing the valve. (Leave the valve in the open position to allow air to escape)

How to fold up the kayak to put it in the bag?

1. We recommend placing the canvas of the bridge inside the fold. 2. Fold the bottom in half lengthwise, edge to edge. 3. Starting with the bow, follow the folding marks and their numbering

4. Leave the valves in the open position to allow air to escape.

5. Finishing step: strap the kayak (strapping it up well makes it easier to put it in the bag)

Regulations for kayaks > 3.50 metres

Your canoe/kayak is rigid or inflatable with at least 2 separate air chambers. It measures more than 3.50 metres. It is approved for sea use by the manufacturer.



You can paddle up to 2 nautical miles (approx. 3 km) from shore. You must carry a number of items of safety equipment.

You can find a list of these items via this link: https://www.itiwit.fr/reglementation-pour-faire-du-canoe-kayak

Composition

The dropstitch is a mesh made of polyester yarns; between 2 layers of PVC. When inflated to high pressure, the threads are stretched and the construction becomes very strong, thus avoiding any deformation.



This is what makes our inflatable kayak extremely rigid but easy to stow in a backpack once deflated.
