This first-of-its-kind kayak is constructed with BOTE’s inflatable AeroBOTE Technology and goes from travel bag to a 12′6″ fishing kayak in a matter of minutes. The LONO shares many of our paddle board feature options, which allow it to be accessorized and configured to make it your own. Not to mention, it’s lightweight, easy to store, easy to transport, and a blast to paddle! Our first-ever voyage into the kayaking sphere sets the high water mark for drop stitch inflatable kayaks. With truly, unimaginable convenience, stability, performance, and a whole gamut of features unique to this platform, the LONO inflatable kayak will transform your kayak fishing or paddling experience. Most notable is the four-chamber construction, which gives the kayak its shape and performance characteristics. It’s an amazing adaptation of our Aero Technology.

How to use & care for your LONO Aero

Lono Aero Kayak inflating and deflating

Inflation & Deflation

What goes up, must come down. Getting the LONO Aero inflated and deflated is simple. First remove the folded kayak from the travel bag, unroll, locate all inflation valves, attach the pump hose to the valves and fill ‘em up.

Each body chamber of the LONO Aero is to be filled until the pressure reaches 12-15 PSI, while the seat back should only be inflated to 5-7 PSI. When you are ready to pack it up, do everything in reverse ... Easy as 1,2,3.

The LONO Aero’s maximum pressure in main chambers is 15 PSI, with recommended inflation between 12-14 PSI. Seat Back should remain between 5-7 PSI.

Care & Storage

These simple guidelines will ensure your LONO Aero will maintain its integrity for the long haul.

Store in a Cool, Dry Place

Always store your LONO Aero in a cool, dry place or a shady area out of reach of direct sunlight, to avoid bursting or fading of colors.

Keep out of Direct Sunlight When not in use

The sun both weakens the material and seams and increases the pressure beyond its design limits.

Reduce PSI when not in use

If you must leave your LONO Aero out of the water and in direct sunlight or choose to store it partially inflated, reduce pressure until the LONO is compressible by hand.

FISHING GAME CHANGER
 

Kayaking

The LONO was designed to be a sit-on-top kayak. As such, center yourself on the seat, adjust the seat back as needed and paddle it as you would any other kayak.

Stand-Up Paddling

With the convertible top chamber, the LONO transforms from kayak to stand-up paddle platform in seconds. Simply remove the top and seat back and you’re set for some SUP adventures.

Top Chamber

Use the removable convertible top chamber separately to float your KULA cooler, let your kids have somewhere to sit, or simply use it as a spot to rest your drink while you’re relaxing in the water.

Fun for the Whole Family

In a day and age where everyone is connected, sometimes it’s best to disconnect and get back to nature. If you love the water, kayaking is the best way to experience it and especially with the family. The LONO Aero is a portable, light, and durable option your family can enjoy for years. Plus, with its stability and comfortable deck pad it makes for the perfect kayak for family outings with kids or dogs. When it’s time to play, detach the removable top for fun in-water kids dock.

Fun & Easy

Whether you are looking for a quick paddle before work or a day on the water with friends, LONO is going to help you maximize your fun.The hull shape and center fin were designed to allow maximum efficiency with minimal effort, allowing you to get to where you want to go with ease. While at the sandbar or in shallow waters, float the removable top chamber with a KULA to create mobile bar to hang out and have fun.

Gotta Cast ‘Em All

Being comfortable on the water, and especially as a paddler, will make your fishing much more enjoyable. The LONO Aero’s extreme stability will make you feel confident when making standing casts, which is a great way to increase your line of sight and casting distance. Plus, with the keel guard and mounted side bite fins, you can maneuver into the shallows while the underside is protected.

No Soggy Bottoms with the Self-Draining Cockpit & Elevated Seat

Utilizing gravity and momentum the kayak can rid itself of unwanted water by draining through the stern. The sit-on-top design keeps you elevated off the hull so that you remain comfortable and dry as water moves out. Additionally, the removable, adjustable seat back ensures you can sit much more comfortably than a traditional kayak. This is especially convenient when you’re enjoying a paddle during cooler weather.

Load it Down for a Long Excursions

What would be the point of a kayak for expedition if you couldn’t load it down? The LONO Aero can carry up to 400LBS, ensuring you and all of your equipment can travel just fine while scouting your next campsite for your off-land adventures. And don’t worry about having to cram all your gear in the front to leave room for yourself to sit, the elevated seat means that you’ve got plenty of additional storage right under your butt!

Bring it Along on Your Next Trip

Between the inflatable technology and the rolling carry bag the LONO Aero is practically begging to go on your next trip with you. Don’t be bummed out by feeling restricted to nearby spots. The LONO Aero bag is compliant to check with most commercial airlines, allowing you to think outside the traditional “tourist” box when traveling afar. And once you arrive at your next new adventure location, just pump it up and paddle.

Deck It Out

The LONO shares many of our feature options, which allow it to be accessorized and configured to fit your style and needs. BOTE’s selection of accessory Racs are the perfect addon to get you started customizing your LONO and making it your own.

Simply insert it into the Rac Receivers behind the LONO's adjustable seat back and you have storage for up to four rods (fits both conventional and fly.) Use the upright holders for getting around and the angled holders for trolling. And when you're not fishing, all four can simply be used for storage.
Rocket Rac is sold separately and designed specifically to fit LONO Aero.

Love it but there is a learning curve to being able to repack it once you get it out the first time, a video would be great with step by step instructions showing exactly how to do it and what to avoid!

Thoughtfully designed - well enjoyed!!

Purchased primarily for fishing; my first inflatable kayak after many years of a standard 11.5 ft sit-on-top. I've had two nice days out with my LONO Aero after receiving and have had very enjoyable outings. Some quick pro's: 1) Easier to transport 2) Pretty quick set-up from parking to on the water 3) Spacious - more room for stuff, easier to stand while fishing, better view point sitting higher off the water 4) Durable - inflated at the minimum psi the LONO Aero already feels super solid and held up to initial gravel, underwater branches, and minor hook encounters during use 5) Impressive design and look - people have inquired after seeing it out On the other hand the only con that I have initially encountered is getting it fully back in the travel bag after use (so that it zips all around). This is not an issue for me though as I would only require that for checking this onto a flight - don't need full zip for the car trunk. Very much enjoy this well designed and durable inflatable kayak (that can be a SUP as well) and hope to be using it for years to come on my fishing and family trips.

Excellent choice if you do not have space to store a regular kayak

So far I do love my new Lono! It is very well designed and constructed. I went twice to do some fly fishing and I could stand up and cast without problem, even when there were boats passing by and creating some small and not so small waves. It is very stable. Also it has a lot of space everywhere. Really practical. I look forward to try it as a paddleboard. Three things to note in the not-so positive side: - it is a bit slow compared to other kayaks - due to the high profile the wind pushes it around easily - I have not been able to fold it back fully into the bag yet. Still working on that. It may take a few more iterations. But I do like it a lot and recommend it!
