Up until 2016, the low-profile Leafield C7 Valve was the gold standard when it came to high-performance rafts, catarafts, inflatable kayaks, and RIBS. The Leafield C7 Valve rugged and dependable, as well as easy to maintain, clean, and replace. Low-profile cap prevents snagging on other equipment and serves as a secondary air seal. The working parts are in the outer portion of the valve, so it's easy to clean the valve seal, or repair if necessary. From 1999 to 2016, this was the most common valve for Avon, Hyside, RMR, Maravia, Sotar, Vanguard, and other high-performance inflatalbes.
