Intex Challenger K1 reviews
One of the best things about this Intex boat is that it is so affordable. But as always, since the price is so low, don’t really expect too much especially when it comes to how the kayak looks like. The kayak has a very simple design, which makes it look like a pool toy rather than a kayak.
But even though it does not look so “pro paddler” to most of us, the materials used into making this kayak is not so bad either. It’s actually quite sturdy once you get the hang of it. But remember that this is not used for wild waters unlike Advanced Kayaks, the design and the material of the boat is not suited for rapids, and you might end up with a tattered and torn piece of plastic sheet.
This boat is definitely a must buy for those who want to go paddling out in calmer waters. It’s more of a leisure paddle than a sporty activity.
