Setting it up is a breeze, and in minutes, it transforms into a 12'6" kayak ready for action.

Stability and durability are key features of the Deus. With its 4-chambered construction, it offers excellent stability on the water. The removable 10-inch fin ensures smooth tracking, while the ample keel guard enhances durability. Made with military-grade PVC, this vessel is both lightweight and strong, making it easy to maneuver in and out of the water.

The Deus is highly configurable to fit your preferences. It comes with a removable seat back, foot bar, and top, allowing you to customize your setup. Equipped with D-Rings, you can easily secure your cooler, anchor, or rope, ensuring everything stays in place during your journey.

Now, let's address some frequently asked questions about the BOTE Deus Aero Inflatable Kayak & SUP Board with Accessories:

1. Anyone have any tips for folding it back into the bag? I have fully deflated mine and can't get it back in.

Make your life easier and get a rechargeable SUP pump. Use it when you deflate the board, and there will be no need for others to help you pack up. The pump will suck out every bit of air, allowing for easier folding and fitting back into the bag. Ensure you dry off the board well to prevent molding. Check out rechargeable pumps on Amazon.

2. What battery-operated pump would work with this? Does it have the right connections?

We recommend the Inflatable Boat Pump Adaptor Pump Accessory, specifically designed for connecting with this board. It works well with the RYOBI hand pump.

3. Is this easy to swim off of?

If you mean jumping off and getting back on, it's somewhat easy. However, good balance is necessary when standing up on the board or kayak. Getting off and on at the back is relatively straightforward if you have moderate strength.

4. Does BOTE have any boats/boards with a max weight capacity of 400 or higher?

Yes, BOTE offers boats/boards with a higher weight capacity. Currently, the specific product is unavailable on Amazon, but you can explore their range to find suitable options.

Things we like

  • Every single detail has been given great thought. It will be difficult to capture every one of BOTE Deus, but I will do my best. At first glance, It is hard to tell just by looking at this kayak that it is inflatable.
  • Regarding visual appeal, BOTE stands out visually with teal and orange colors, which certainly have that BOTE appeal.  
  • Deus Aero is more than just visually pleasing; Its construction is impressive. Deus Aero kayak features four independent chambers, making it unsurpassed in terms of durability and stability in the world of inflatable kayaks. 
  • Another elegant feature of the Deus Aero kayak is its unrestricted stern; it doesn't fill with water by funneling water out the back.  
  • Moreover, it has a non-slip deck pad that makes it easy to stand up and paddle, whether a kayak or a paddleboard.

Things we don't like

  • The price tag of BOTE Deus Aero kayak will be one of its significant downsides. As a result, you will not be able to obtain Cadillac quality at a Ford price in this case. BOTE Deus isn't a "value" kayak; it is an excellent, high-quality, cutting-edge kayak that deserves every dollar it costs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone have any tips for folding it back into the bag? I have fully deflated mine and can’t get it back in.

Make your life easier and get a rechargeable SUP pump... use it when you deflate too and then there is no need for others to help you pack up. When the pump is deflating the craft you can go around and dry it off and position it to flatten neatly for a smooth full deflation. With the pump is sucking out every bit of air the SUP folds easier and fit back into the bag easier... especially when it is dried off well... and then it doesn't mold in the bag. The process goes faster and people are not waiting for you as long to pack up your gear. Check out rechargeable pumps:
