Engineered with commercial-grade durability, the 1,000d reinforced PVC Recon is the most durable whitewater packraft ever made. Self-Bailing packrafts are engineered to keep you above the water by automatically draining water from the boat via the combination of the inflatable floor and drain-holes.
The Self-Bailing design excels at minimizing weight, setup complexity, and most importantly a faster self-rescue time when compared to a spraydecked packraft. Additionally, because PVC constructed packrafts can be inflated to a higher pressure compared to traditional TPU packrafts, the Recon won’t flex while plugging bigger holes and features on the river.
This 18lbs (8.2 kgs) boat is perfect for road-to-river whitewater, after-work laps, and rated up to Class IV.
The Recon features our 1,000d Reinforced PVC sidewalls and 1,000d Reinforced PVC floor , the same material used in commercial rafts.
The seams are welded and the pontoon-to-floor attachment point is glued to the sidewall and then reinforced with v-seam tape around the entire interior of the packraft.
Whitewater Series packrafts also have an additional 3in (7.6 cm) of floor material coverage on the sidewalls for extra reinforcement and protection.
The Inflatable Floor with Integrated Seat is made from 210d Diamond-Ripstop Nylon and uses a GRI Push-Push valve. Starting at 7 in (17.9 cm) thick in the seat area, the floor tapers to 4 in (10.2 cm) thick from the knees to the bow. This keeps you comfortable and improves paddling position which allows for deeper, more efficient paddle strokes.
For the main pontoon, the Recon Self-Bailing features a GRI Push-Push valve, the most durable and bomber valve on the planet. Used in all full-size rafts, the GRI is made from roto-molded plastic and is threaded and screwed together, not welded or glued. Meaning your valve will never come un-welded or fall apart. The GRI Push-Push valve also easily integrates with the all new TRiB airCap – HRand Nano Barrel Pump.
