Gumotex Thaya


The Gumotex Thaya is a premium inflatable kayak offering excellent performance for 1 or 2 paddlers. Using the latest Nitrilon Drop-Stitch technology on the floor and seats, the Thaya maintains a high-pressure rigid hull shape for increased paddling performance on the water.


The Dropstitch technology works by connecting of the upper and lower layers of the floor fabric with thousands of polyester fibers. The drop-stitch floor is then bonded to the outer resistant Nitrilon® material for excellent durability and robustness. The fibres connecting the uper and lower floor pannels allows for this chamber to be inflated up to a high pressure, providing incredible rigidity, nearing that of a solid boat.... but all in a product that can easily be deflated and folded up for storage and transport!


The Thaya is ideal for two paddlers but performs well for solo paddling too, as a seat can be set up in a central position for better weight distribution. The seats also feature drop-stitch construction, providing a rigid and supportive backrest for comfortable paddling. An optional third seat can be fitted to take an extra small passenger.


The Thaya packs down into a transport bag for easy carrying and storage. Great for paddling trips on calm waters, exploring inland waterways or sheltered bays and estuaries. The Thaya can also be used in 'light' moving water such as small surf and slow moving rivers with gentle white-water up to grade 2.


Note: The kayak is supplied with two seats. The third seat is possible to purchase separately as an accessory.
