More Detailed Info

The Bic YakkAir 2 arrived on the market in June of 2009. It is best used on flatwater and for light recreational use. The YakkAir has a lot of really great features as well as a very attractive design.

However there are quite a few major flaws with this kayak that need to be considered.

Please read the review for the YakkAir 1 to learn more details about the ins and outs of this new Bic inflatable kayak.

Final Thoughts

This inflatable kayak has a lot of potential but for the price tag it has, it really needs to step it up a bit.

There are lots of inflatable kayaks these days that are built with absolute quality and with excellent features.

In my opinion Bic needs to make a few improvements to this kayak before it will be taken seriously in a very competitive market. Time will tell how well the Yajkkair holds up.
