Inflatable Tubes


How to pick the right Towable / Inflatable?

There are various types of boating and jet ski tubes. Jet Pilot tubes are rated as 1 person, 2 person, 3 person and 4 person towable tubes. You will see in the description field each tube will have a maximum number of adult riders. For safety reasons Jet Pilot recommends that an adult rider is always present on an inflatable when riding so that adult can quickly assist.


What factors to consider when choosing a Towable / Inflatable?

A factor of chosing a tube is the surface area on the bottom of a towable. Some towables will skim faster on the water at higher speeds if the tube has a shape to reduce surface area contact with the water such as the Jet Pilot Grippers 2 and 3 Person towable and Jet Pilot Slingshot towables. 


Jet Pilot Towable Tips

When you are prepping your towable make sure that it is fully inflated. Towable shapes are designed to perform their best when they are blown up to their capacity. You will know when your tube is fully inflated when it expands to fill the cover without distorting the original shape. You will also notice a fully inflated towable will glide over the water with minimal resistance compared to under inflated towables where they will gather water when riding.
