Features of Intex Challenger K2 Kayak

The K2 comes with everything you need to get out on the water and have fun.

When you get the K2 you also get paddles, air pump and patch kit to keep you going should an accident occur and the kayak gets punctured.

The Intex Challenger K2 and Intex Challenger K1 are but a handful of inflatable kayaks that are US Coast Guard approved.

The K2 is compact and very portable. You don't need to worry about getting a car rack for the kayak or any extra space in the garage.

Simply deflate and fold up when it is not in use. It doesn’t need a whole lot of room in a closet or shed and comes with a nifty carrying bag.

The space for this kayak is remarkable as the K2 can seat two people comfortably. Or you can go solo for even more storage space that you’ll need on camping trips or those long weekend fishing excursions.

Plus the K2 is rugged and dependable for being an inflatable kayak thanks to the materials used for its construction.

This also makes it super lightweight and easy for anyone to tote around. You don't need a dolly to help get this kayak to the water or back to your vehicle.

And when you are out on the open water, the reflective material makes it easy for other people to spot you.

Let's discuss the features in details.​

Construction

Intex Challenger K2 Kayak

Constructed from ultra-tough vinyl, the K2 like its sister the K1 is puncture resistant and is coated with a UV protective sealant.

The Intex Challenger K2 is 138-inches in length by 30-inches wide and 15-inches deep. The depth of the kayak can make it difficult to get in and out of for some people.

Tracking and Stability​

Just like the K1, K2 tracks well and will stay on course. You don't need to worry about tipping this kayak as it is very stable even when entering and exiting.

Considered as one of the best kayaks available, the Intex Challenger K2 also comes with a removable skeg to help with controlling the kayak and keeping it on course.

Loading

Even though the kayak is inflatable, it holds up to 350-pounds. That is more than enough weight to hold two people plus essentials for a day out on the water. It is a bit heavy though, coming in at 40-pounds.

Comfort​

Because the kayak isn't a hard-shell, you can adjust the air in both the seats as well as the flooring for ultimate comfort.

Conclusion

All in all, this is a great little kayak for day trips and family outings. The material is tough and will hold up to abuse.

If you are planning on using it as a fishing vessel, you will still have to be cautious with your hooks.

Just because the kayak is puncture resistant, doesn't mean that you can stab the kayak with a sharp object.

The Intex Challenger K2 kayak is designed for fun activities and lazy days.

The price is half of what you would spend on a hard-shell and the fact that you can store it easily makes this kayak a great choice.
