Gumotex Thaya

One of the newest additions to the Gumotex range, the Thaya is an upgraded version of the Solar 3. The revolutionary THAYA inflatable kayak, uses a combination of the special Nitrilon® material and Dropstitch* technology, to produce excellent stability, stiffness and manoeuvrability.

The Gumotex Thaya is a super stable and fun kayak. It is designed with the family in mind so it can be quickly changed from a one man, to a tandem and with an optional extra seat to a three man kayak just by moving the seats. The Dropstitch* construction makes the Thaya paddle better than your typical inflatable of this size, and it's long waterline is great for tracking in a straight line.The Thaya can be paddled on flat water such as lakes and estuaries but with it's rigid hull construction, it is also suitable in small surf, slow moving rivers and even gentle white-water up to grade 2.

*The Dropstitch technology is based on the connection of the upper and lower layers of the fabric with thousands of polyester fibres. This fabric, equipped with an airtight coating, is protected from both sides by a resistant Nitrilon® material. Thanks to the thousands fibres holding the both layers together, these products can be inflated up to very high pressure. It enables the material to obtain robustness approaching the robustness of solid materials, and that is with the preservation of the same rollability as our existing boats.
