I am looking at these two inflatables for solo outings. Any advice or preferences here on how they compare contrast through experience would be appreciated. I want to paddle mostly flatwater and occasional whitewater.
Any other boat suggestions in this range? I am considering the idea of bike-packing and or bike-shuttling so a lighter packed size and weight would help. Thanks!!

my impression is that Innova is designing and constructing at a higher level than Sea Eagle. An individual SE might be a better choice than an individual Innova, but on the average, Innova is offering better, though more expensive, products.

I have a different Innova boat (Safari), and I've never paddled a Sea Eagle. Innova is a whole different cut of inflatable boat. The Safari blows up stiff, almost like a hard boat and it is much more enjoyable to paddle than other packable boats I have used, such as AE and Folbot. So, I am biased towards the Innova.
