OK so I bought 2 Dakotas to explore K2 & 2 Challenger K2 The explore material seems a little bit better than the Dakota and challenger and so far the Dakota going over a shallow area and rocks has already popped in six places but the explorer seems to be staying in better condition The Dakota and explore both have three types of material & the challenger only has two and for comfort in stability I say the explorer was better than the Dakota but in all in all they’re almost all the same As in comfort size room and steering the only difference I saw possibly is that the explore had a little bit better material than the other two
It may but It all depends truly how wide our talking. It has a 400lbs weight limit so if you fall within that you should be fine.
It fits in a pretty small bag. Cant say exactly but about 18"X 24" The paddles come apart in sections as well. Hope that helps.
We have used the Sevylor Tahiti's for decades on the world famous Rogue River hear in Oregon. White water Cowboys a local business put Sevylor on the map with their Orange Torpedo as they were called. Yes, they most definitely can be used for class 1 & 2 whitewater. Class 3 and above your taking a large risk and I wouldn't recommend any inflatable style kayak for these heavier waters. That being said I have navigated class 3 rapids in them. However I have decades of experience and worked as a guide for years. Since Intex took over the company I have found the product and customer service to be lacking in the extreme. All of our local sporting goods stores carried and sold Sevylors products for decades. Since Intex took over all our merchants have quit dealing with them and carry other alternatives to these products.
