Valiant V400 Repair - URGENT

Hi
Please can someone help.
Bought a Valiant V400 last year (red), there is a slight leak on a seam.
Please can someone confirm the material used on Valiant (hypalon or pvc) and also the best place to get a repair kit from or best brand.

Regards

It's more than likely to be PVC, if it's a leak on a seam you'll need to get it repaired professionally, have a google for your nearest RIB repairer.

Depends which seam it is. Ive managed to repair one quite successfully with the right kit. The problem is that its more than likely there will be weak seams elsewhere, unless this one was caused by some damage impact and is a one off
