Maurice Belliveau Verified Owner 2/8/2024 5.0 out of 5 stars.

Customer service was great and we love our kayak!!

Elizabeth Crawford Verified Owner 1/23/2024 5.0 out of 5 stars.

Have only had it out a couple of times, but we love it. easy to blow up, easy to portage, stable in the water, easy to fold up and stow in our RV, planning a lot more outings in the coming years

Miles Gibbons Verified Owner 12/17/2023 5.0 out of 5 stars.

Great boat. Very easy to set up and pack up. We have used it in rivers, lakes and bays and it performs great in all. Highly recommended!

Mike Homolka Verified Owner 11/15/2023 5.0 out of 5 stars.

We have only had the boat a week and a half but have used it nearly every day since we bought it. We wanted a boat that would be easy to paddle against strong currents and wind but were worried it might be too tippy. We are happy to report it was not. Fast and or streamlined boats will naturally be more tipy than those that aren't. For those not planning to paddle against strong current or wind,don't care how fast their boat is, and who value stability over all else may be better served by another boat. We had previously owned a Sevylor and a Air Head inflatable and this boat is so much easier to paddle we end up going longer distances and against currents that would have made us turn back with other boats. Not only that but it is faster and easier to paddle than our Mad River Adventure and Old Town Scout which are both hard boats. We needed an inflatable for storage reasons and that it could fit in the trunk of our Mustang convertible.

Key Features

The RazorLite™ Kayak's Straight Hull Design

The RazorLite™ Kayak's Straight Hull Design

An important and unique feature of the RazorLite™ Kayak is its straight hull design which provides the maximum straight hull waterline length. This feature combined with the very narrow kayak width (25" at the waterline) allows the RazorLite™ to paddle as fast as any rigid kayak. The Bow and stern molds are made of durable plastic and cut through the wind, waves, current, and water like a sharp edge straight razor on a clean close shave. With superior length to width ratio, razor sharp bow entry, straight line planing surface and a precision razor sharp stern exit at the rear these inflatable kayaks are in a performance league of their own.

The RazorLite™ Kayak's Unique Bow and Stern Design with Tapered Side Walls

The RazorLite™ Kayak's Unique Bow and Stern Design with Tapered Side Walls

The RazorLite™ Kayak's rigid bow and stern molds create the worlds very first speed entry system that leads into a double concave and then opens into a flat planing surface. The double concave design at bow allows pockets of air to enter in between the hull and the water creating lift while reducing friction and drag. The double concave at stern creates a super clean exit. The Tapered Drop Stitch Side Walls provide a rigid chine at the waterline and secondary buoyancy and stability. These features combine to enable the RazorLite™ to glide quickly and effortlessly through the water!

Bow and Stern Molds

Bow and Stern Molds

The RazorLite™ Kayak's rigid bow and stern molds create a razor sharp speed entry and exit system. The bow mold cuts through the water effortlessly at a high velocity. The water then meets the carefully designed Tapered Side Walls creating lift while reducing friction and drag, then exits just as fast as it entered at the stern mold leaving little to no wake behind.

The World's First and Only Kayak Made Entirely Of Drop Stitch Material

The World's First and Only Kayak Made Entirely Of Drop Stitch Material

The patented Sea Eagle RazorLite™ High Performance Ultra Light Kayak is the world's first and only inflatable kayak made entirely with Drop Stitch Technology throughout! This kayak uses 3" Drop Stitch material for the floor and 4" Drop Stitch material for the side walls. Our Drop Stitch material uses thousands of high tensile strength threads connecting the top and bottom fabric layers, creating thousands of I-beam supports. This enables the RazorLite™ to be inflated to a much higher pressure (10 psi) than other kayaks (3-4 psi) which increases overall rigidity. The unique Drop Stitch construction makes the RazorLite™ as fast as any rigid kayak in it's class and provides the added benefit of being able to pack in its own backpack. The RazorLite™ is as tough as nails, incredibly rigid, ultra light, and a delight to paddle. U.S. Patent 9,452,809
