The amazing two person Alpacka Gnu is our most versatile packraft. Adventure racing or long downriver trips? Two people paddling canoe style using the standard inflatable center saddle can achieve twice the hull speed of our standard packrafts. Fishing? Sit on the back with a kayak paddle and guide the front person to the fish just like a drift boat. Whitewater? Configure it with the optional two place whitewater deck and take on the rapids C2 style. The Gnu comes in either our standard fabric, or as an upgrade with 200d Vectran® tubes, which allows the boat to be inflated to a higher pressure for maximum stiffness and performance. The Alpacka Gnu comes standard with a Cargo Fly zipper in the center inflatable saddle, which is perfect for storing day gear. For longer trips, adding a Cargo Fly option to the boat itself opens up a tremendous amount of interior storage space.
Note: If kneeling and running rapids or paddling amongst rocks, we strongly recommend knee pads or some kind of knee protection on the bottom of the packraft!
We highly recommend our Shred-Apart paddle that converts from a single kayak paddle into two canoe paddles with t-grips.
