Description

Hop in the Tributary Strike Inflatable Kayak and enjoy the thrill of whitewater or the tranquility of paddling on glass-smooth water.

Tributary designed the Strike Inflatable Kayak for the paddler who demands a high performance kayak at a reasonable price—plus, this kayak won't take up a ton of room in your garage. This one-person kayak's contemporary styling makes it efficient to paddle on both flat water and in the rapids—the bow and stern are upturned enough to deflect waves in whitewater but are flat enough not to be a problem in the wind. Tributary constructed the Strike with safety and stability in mind—its extra wide construction remains maneuverable and all but eliminates the possibility of flipping. The Strike's durable urethane bladders, welded seams, and storage space make the boat a great choice for a day of hitting the rapids or for paddling long hours on a lightweight overnighter.

is it possible to install thigh straps

Aubrey,
Certainly! Aire actually sells a kit for that. I have also known people to utilize just an NRS cam strap..not super comfy but they get the job done. Here's the link to Aire's site. Good Luck!

Great ducky!!!

This is a great ducky! I've taken my girlfriend's boat down the Hudson River and the Snake River (Alpine section) and it worked great. These fun little IKs are maneuverable and stable up to class 4 whitewater. The Strike is also quite playful and is really fun to surf in small holes and average-sized waves. This is a great boat for beginners and expert paddlers alike. If you're going to get one, I highly suggest you add thigh straps and foot pegs for extra support and stability -- especially if you want start doing rolls.

Kickin Butt

Wow what a blast this little boat is. The first time I took it out it was at the Webster County white water festival in est Virginia. It was so easy to maneuver and wow will this boat flt. Second time was on the upper new river and once again no problems. If you like to gung ho you will love this boat. And to the nerd that said he would not take this boat over a class 2 rapid you must be off your rocker I was riding right through class 4 all day.

FUN

I paddled one of these babies down the middle fork of the Flathead River in Montana. Wow, what can I say. It was an unforgettable experience. It is definitely a fun boat, but it kind of bucks when you hit big rapids which in turn causes you to get flipped out of it. This would be a really fun boat to play around in on more mellow rivers and lakes, but from my experience with it I wouldn't take it on anything over Class II.

get some thigh braces and you will be all set. I have taken this down the Hudson (class II to IV) the Kennebeck (Class III-IV) and the Gates of Lodor section of the Green River (Class II-IV) and have been flipped out very few times. Also keep the boat perpendicular to the waves, lean forward and learn to brace. That should keep you in the boat.
