Davy on the water

Cutting edge innovation

The H-shape side tubes reduce the width of the boat and improve rigidity. This allows for faster paddling speeds, as never before seen on a packraft.

Its progressive bow and stern shape helps reduce drag and keep you on track, while providing good stability for beginners.

Equipped with our latest improvements: efficient and easy to use coaming, compact EVA foam backrest and a larger inflation bag. 100% HF welded, 100% made in France!

Guaranteeing durability, we use high-performance nylon with double TPU coating, made in the USA. Unmatched tear, abrasion and UV resistance.

The W-shaped hull profile provides excellent stability and allows for more knee and leg room, thus giving a more comfortable sitting position.

Cleaning and draining your packraft made easy: a hole located at the rear of the deck simplifies getting out any water or dirt after your trip.

FAQ

The internal storage system consists of an airproof zipper (Superseal by Tizip) that is welded to the back of your packraft. By opening the zip you have access to the inside of the boat and can store you gear (tent, sleeping bags, backpack…) safely. Think about it like turning your packraft into a giant dry-bag. You have over 150L to store your gear. More than enough space for even those that can’t leave home without the kitchen sink. Zip it up and you are off!

The internal storage system is extremely practical for those who go on an expedition over several days or weeks and need to bring a large quantity of equipment and provisions. It is also of great interest during bike-rafting outings where the front of the packraft is already occupied by your bike. During day trips, it is not so essential, but simplifies life.

Please remember that the Tizip needs to be treated delicately and cleaned regularly. Because of this is is excluded from our warranty, like other manufacturers. If you zip is damaged or dirty it will leak slightly. In conclusion, if you are not someone who is not very careful with their equipment, maybe you should think carefully about adding this option.

A noter que le Tizip nécessite en entretien régulier et doit être traité avec soin. Bien que réparable, il est par ailleurs exclu de la garantie, comme chez les autres fabricants de packrafts. En cas de défaillance (zip abîmé, sable ou boue incrustée dans la fermeture éclair…), votre bateau va se mettre à fuir légèrement. En conclusion, si la délicatesse n’est pas votre fort, posez-vous bien la question de savoir si vous en aurez l’utilité ou non avant de choisir cette option !

Longer and narrower than classic packrafts, Davy Rocket is a hybrid between a kayak and a packraft, which takes the best of both worlds: the lightness of a packraft (4.5 kilos all included) and the improved paddling experience of the best inflatable kayaks (6 km/h on average on calm water, better tracking). Thanks to its W-shaped hull, it nevertheless remains very stable and is suited for beginners.

To achieve this, we reimagined the packraft by modifying the shape of the hull and shell.

You can choose from : Ice blue, Saphire blue or Saphire Blue, Ice Blue and Opaline Green.

Son histoire

 De retour d’une sortie sur l’Ubaye, rivière reine des Hautes-Alpes, dans le train qui traverse les montagnes du Haut-Diois et nous ramène à la maison, nous rêvons d’un nouveau bateau qui repousse les limites du Packraft. Au fil du trajet surgit une idée : un vrai rocker intégral. Nous commençons à dessiner les grandes lignes du projet au fur et à mesure que nous nous rapprochons de l’atelier : une proue affirmée pour casser les vagues, des lignes harmonieuses pour glisser sur l’eau…

De retour à Crest, nous déroulons les tissus, allumons les ordinateurs et les soudeuses, et planchons sur un premier prototype. Des mois et des mois passent, une quinzaine de prototypes sont réalisés et testés. Nous devons faire preuve de persévérance pour que ce rêve devienne réalité.

Tous ces efforts en valaient la peine. Nous sommes retournés sur l’Ubaye cet hiver. Le roi est arrivé !
