The American Whitewater Series is the heart of our innovation legacy. These packrafts are the source of our most cutting edge developments, like the Whitewater Deck, the Cargo Fly, and our patented Rally Hull and 4-point thigh straps, which have revolutionized packrafting many times over. Our whitewater design mission is to continuously redefine what a packraft is capable of. The results speak for themselves with packraft descents of famous Class V runs like the Middle Fork of the Kings, the Elwha, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, South Fork of the Salmon, Vallecito Creek, and many more. However, we know that the most fun whitewater doesn’t mean the hardest. So we’ve made our whitewater packrafts stable, comfortable and forgiving to paddle, which make classic Class II-IV runs accessible and fun for paddlers of all levels.
