TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

All our packrafts are designed, manufactured and tested in France from A to Z, in our workshop in Drôme, using the best materials available.

CONSTRUCTION
We do not use a drop of glue, the pieces of fabric used to make the boats are exclusively and completely welded together at high frequency, an assembly technology that guarantees extraordinary durability. The welded sections are thus stronger after welding than before.

MATERIALS
In its Classic version, the sidewalls are made of 210 denier high tenacity nylon with a double coat of TPU. The floor is 840 denier nylon with a double TPU coating, which is extremely resistant to abrasion.

In its Armor version, the sidewalls are made of 420 denier high tenacity nylon with a double coat of TPU. The floor is 840 denier nylon with a double TPU coating, which is extremely resistant to abrasion.

Our packrafts are equipped with Leafield D7 valves, the most robust and durable valve on the planet. The Leafield D7 valve is guaranteed for life. As well as fasteners with stainless steel ring.

We use the Tizip™ Superseal product for the internal storage system (optional) as well as stainless steel rings for making the fasteners. The cushions have “low profile” valves with non-return valve and rapid deflation opening.

HOW TO CHOOSE MY PACKRAFT ?

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 250L 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.

Available colours to choose from:
– Yellow & Black (Classic)
– Grey & Black (Classic)
– Orange & Black (Armor fabric, 165€ extra)

It is also possible to completely customise the look of your boat, by adding a 50€ surcharge. Until our e-shop is modified, please state your desired colours in the comments when you order.

We build your packrafts to your design and therefore have limited stock. Our lead time can vary from one to five months but is subjected to the volume of orders. If you would like to find out the exact delay, please give us a call. In any case, if you have a trip or expedition coming up with a cut-off date, it’s best to order as early as possible!
