For sea kayaking, day touring, and fishing.
Used for search and rescue by the Canadian Ranger Kayak Patrol on the west coast of Vancouver Island and outfitters as far afield as Papua New Guinea, the Helios is both versatile and rugged.
It comes with its own deluxe drybag/backpack that will fit in an airline overhead bin. And when you reach your destination, you can set up in less than 10 minutes(really!).
Use the Helios to explore rivers, paddle along ocean shorelines, or go fishing in the back country. A Helios boat won the predicted log section of the ‘97 San Juan Challenge, averaging 3 knots over the 40-mile course in winds gusting to 45 knots.
Weighing only 36 pounds, the Helios II EX is an amazingly versatile, safe kayak.
The Helios II EX is fully rubber-coated Nitrylon™ fabric construction throughout. Nitrylon™ is rugged, dries fast, and is easy to keep clean.
- Deck netting and gear bungees
- Adjustable footrest
- Carry handles
- Optional foot-controlled rudder available.
The Helios was chosen twice for a Readers Choice Award from Sea Kayaker magazine in the inflatable kayak category. The award was based on the results of a reader survey taken every three years.
