GREAT KIT - HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE

The Intex Challenger K1 Kayak Kit is absolutely fantastic. Couldn't have better things to say. The kayak is quick and easy to set up (no less than 5 minutes for full inflation) and quick to deflate and can fit in the trunk of any car. I have logged over 50 miles in the kayak already in San Marcos, TX on the Blanco and San Marcos Rivers (these rivers have a fair amount of rocks and branches that could potentially puncture the kayak) and I have not had a single tear of leak yet. VMinnovations.com was fast and easy to use and had no tax and free shipping and I received my order in less than 2 days from Nebraska. GREAT PURCHASE

Breaks Down Quickly

Was enjoying the kayak.  However no long works after a few outings.  You get what you pay for - broken in 5 weeks.

Flat tire

I set up the challenger 1 in the backyard for a test before I put it in the river.    The Second valve was faulty and leaking air badly.  I am thankful is wasn't on the water.

Very disappointed.    

Good news, Contacted Intex and they are shipping a new Kayak.

best money i have ever spent!!

This K! kayak is great in the water I was kind of iffy about before a puchased the two i bought But decided to go for it .One of the items i purchased had a small issue and i called VM and they sent me a new one" NO QUESTIONS ASKED" There customer service is really off the charts .They sent the new one to me in 2 days flat which was perfect because i was on my way to the lakes region in NH. They were very easy to fill-up with the included air pump was done with the both of them in about 20 mins. I was suprised to see how well they stayed afloat without bogging down from my weight.They are made of a very thick vinyl which really stays stiff under the weight.they move pretty quick threw the water .They are a little heavy after taken out of the water and there deflated. I would bring one of those beach wagon to put them in after use on the lake or rivers \And the bottom removable fin gets dirt in it and it has to be knocked out with the palm of your hand after outdoor use to get it off to store it, but besides that there very nice .My daughter and i went about a mile off sure with them at a lake and it was such a nice felling being out there with my daughter together paddling away.I got so many compliments at the lake it was funny.  Oh well thats my reveiw .If you are going to buy these from anywhere get them from VMinnovations thy have very good customer reps ..Thank you VM for bringing me a cool product i can look young in!!

GREAT deal!
I bought two of these and I LOVE them!. I've owned (and still own) two good quality, hard-shell kayaks (an Old Town and a Perception) for many years. If I lived right on the water at a lake I would most likely prefer them to these inflatables. But, like most of us, I don't. If I want to go kayaking with my old ones I have to unhook them from where I store them on the side of my carport, take them down, hook the kayak rack onto the roof of my van., muscle the kayaks up there, tie them up, and then reverse the process when I get to the water, then do ANOTHER on-off-hook-up procedure when I leave again for home. It got to be such a hassle I haven't used them in about 10 years. If I wanted to go kayaking I would actually RENT them at the lake for about $9/hour to avoid all the work, while my own, better kayaks stayed put on the wall! I'm 64, still working full-time, and my time is limited. I'm not into the time breakdown of my kayaking experience being 2/3 setting up and taking down and only 1/3 on the water. I keep one of these in the back of my van, and if I get the urge to kayak, or if I happen to pass a place that looks like fun, I can be out on the water in about 10 or 12 minutes from turning off the van (they SAY six minutes, but that is ridiculous, unless you are on the Intex World Champion Kayak Inflating Team). I have also owned a Sea Eagle 330 for a long time, which is a very good inflatable (what can I say, I'm a Craigslist kayak lunatic), but it takes at least 3 times as long to inflate and is twice as big and hard to carry to the water as this one). Plus, for what you pay for the cheapest 330 deal, you can buy THREE of these! Plus, I think its more fun to be in 2 boats than one bigger one where you have to coordinate all your activity, especially if you want to fish. I've taken one of these out twice so far, and have had a fantastic time! The seat is too high, so (like most other reviewers) I deflate the bottom of it almost completely, and its much better. You COULD do without it entirely, but then you wouldn't be able to enjoy one of kayaking's greatest pleasures - leaning back and sunning/napping on the water. The seat installation straps give the seatback much more support, so you can instantly set if for straight-up or napping position, which is a plus over the lower-end Sea Eagle seats (the ones with support cost a lot more from Sea Eagle). You can lean the seatback back and rest your head on the lip of the rear edge of the cockpit, put your feet up and be off to la-la-land, gently rocked by the water and the breeze. I've seen complaints in reviews about the paddles that come with it. I don't understand that. I've had a lot of paddles and these are just fine by me. Maybe you would need better ones on whitewater, but you have NO BUSINESS being on white water in one of these. That's not what they are for. I've also seen reviewers talk about how easy it is to lose the skeg if it comes unattached, and how hard it is to track with one of these without the skeg on (it IS very hard without the skeg, but fairly good with it). But it is just as easy to drill a 1/4 inch small hole in the back side of the skeg just below where it joins with the base and attach a few feet of braided plastic rope to it and tie it to the rear, and problem solved! When you drill your hole, make sure to round and smooth the edges of the hole with your drill or Dremel so it does not eat into the rope and cut it. Also, make sure you drill into the fully thick part at least a half-inch in, not the edge where the plastic thins down. They would be doing their customers a big favor if it came with this hole pre-drilled, but, as I said, its no big deal. I did both boats in about a half hour. I've also seen people in reviews say they got wet. I didn't (except my feet). It is pretty stable. You also need to master the art of using kayak paddles gently so the water doesn't drip down below the lip. but you need to do that in ANY kayak. Besides, it is so small and light that it takes a very little amount of effort to get where you want to go. Maybe if it was very choppy or you were on a fast river it would be different, but again, that is not what this boat is for. I've fished from it both times. Its a little unnerving having hooks and other sharp objects around an inflatable, but not hard to deal with. (although I haven't had to fight any big fish from it yet). The plastic seems fairly durable, so I think its mostly a matter of getting my head over the idea of it. Plus, the cargo net is great for holding your tackle box. The bad points are, its not very big inside. I'm 5'8', 180 lbs and its a little tight with your legs in the cockpit (but definitely doable). If you're 6'2', you should probably look elsewhere. However, you never really HAVE to have your legs inside. It is comfortable and fun to use it with your legs over the sides, on top of the deck, or crossed. Also, it can be cramped in the forward leg compartment with the inflatable triangle "footrest" it comes with installed. But you don't HAVE to use this, and I can't figure out why you would ever want to. Maybe it provides a little more bouyency in front, or helps keep you afloat in case you hit some rocks and pop BOTH of the air compartments at once (as if). It works fine without it. Be careful with the pump. I haven't had any problems yet, but it looks like it might break if you get carried away with trying to speed-inflate it, and you would then be screwed big-time. I think it takes about 50 to 70 pumps on each bladder to inflate it, and a few more for the two chambers on the seat and the useless piece-of-crap "footrest," if you decide to use it. It takes a little practice to learn to pinch the air valve on these when you unhook the pump so you don't lose the air, but not a big deal. This is NOT an issue at all with the Boston valves on the main chambers, by the way - they hold the air great, and you don't lose a drop! Also, it can be hard to get the smaller valves uncollapsed from where they flatten out into the kayak to deflate them. Use your car key to gently pry them out. Deflating it completely and bagging it back up in the provided storage bag is kind of an art that takes a few minutes to master, but not a big deal. The bag is not as good quality as the carry bag that you get when you buy the Sea Eagle 330 (with the higher price all-together package), but it doesn't have to be. Its fine for this smaller, lighter boat. Plus, you're not going to ride in the bag. The first time I took this out two weeks ago I had one of the most pleasant and enjoyable late Indian Summer afternoons I've ever had. All in all, for the $65 each I paid for these (complete with good quality paddles and the seat and bag), I consider this one of the best deals I've gotten in a long, long time.
