Short Answer: Machine Welded Seams
Long Answer: The thermowelding process fuses 2 materials together using heat instead of glue. Glued seams are all produced by hand and are subject to the glue getting 'tired' and letting go. Thermowelding is a much better process because it lasts indefinitely. We are currently the only BC based company offering fully thermoweld tube technology while all our competitors are still only providing hand glued.
Short Answer: Compact, rugged, affordable
Long Answer: Stryker inflatable boats come in a box that fits into almost any SUVs and lots of cars (I have personally put a 380 in both a Mini Cooper & Honda Fit). Included in every box are 2 heavy duty storage bags: 1 for your boat and 1 for the floor and accessories. With 2 bags they become entirely manageable for 1 or 2 people. Stryker Boats are versatile! You can leave them folded in your vehicle or tow them on a trailer.
Short Answer: You are supporting a local small business.
