The RazorLite™ series comes with a removable skeg for shallow water paddling and ease of storage. Because of its high performance design and capabilities, the RazorLite™ series is best recommended for intermediate and above paddlers.
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 the 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 the 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!
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” or 64 cm 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 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” (7.6 cm) Drop Stitch material for the floor and 4” (10 cm) 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 or 69 kPa) than other kayaks (3-4 psi or 24 kPa), which increases overall rigidity. The unique Drop Stitch construction makes the RazorLite™ as fast as any 12’ (366 cm) rigid kayak 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
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.

This SUP (Stand Up Paddle) Pump’s special design allows for low effort and quick inflation. Made with a reliable and strong aluminum shaft, the SUP Pump comes equipped with hose, recessed one-way valve adapter and a conveniently located in-line pressure gauge. The pump has 2 options: single action (high pressure down stroke only) and double action (both up and down strokes for high volume inflation). SUP Pump capable of inflating to 29 psi.
Note: Use double action for high volume and lower pressures and single action when pumping becomes difficult due to higher pressures.
