Introducing the Point65 Air seat

I'm just back from a trip to the factory and what a sweet visit it was. The new Air seat will be a great success, I'm sure.

It's pneumatically adjustable leg-lifter, hip pads and backrest, gives you an extremely comfortable and perfectly adjustable seating position. The backrest also adjusts vertically. By simply pulling the backrest forward to unlock, the backrest slides and locks effortlessly into the desired position.

I feel that we now offer the best seat on the market. It is not only remarkably comfortable, it is also a high-performance seat that does not inhibit the paddler’s movement, helping instead to find the perfect paddling position.
It looks and feels great to! The seat covers are made of highly durable and comfortable, honey-comb patterned material in combination with mesh-like fabric which is laminated and molded over EVA foam. The closed-cell EVA foam is practically unaffected by water and allows for many hours of comfortable paddling, no matter what the weather conditions are.






I have submitted the Air seat to gruesome abuse. Here just one attempt of blowing the largest air cushion to no avail. Despite jumping heels first with my full weight behind me. I did this over and over again without any effect on the air cushion.

Hi Richard!,
Great article. I recently bought a 2012 model of the sea cruiser and it did not have the air seat attached! I'm just wondering how can I get one and whether or not I might have to pay and if so what price is the seat?

Kind regards,
Padraig

Richard at Point 65 said...

Hi Padraig.
Thank you for choosing a SeaCruiser from Point 65 Kayaks Sweden!

Where are you located?

Hello.

Can the new seat be used with the Martini kayak?

Richard at Point 65 said...

Hi Yaki.
No, but the Martini has a very comfortable backrest and seat pad!
