The Valkyrie is the kayaker's packraft—the pinnacle of whitewater performance in an inflatable package. It features modern creekboat style and rocker with a patented planing hull for secondary stability and edge control. The V3 is the lowest volume and most responsive whitewater boat we've ever made. It’s easier to do everything: boof, roll, eddy, ferry, and all with style.

Product Description

The hype is real. The Valkryie V3 is not just our highest performance whitewater packraft, its the biggest leap in performance that we've ever made and may ever make. It features our lowest profile tubes, modern creek boat shaping, generous bow and stern rocker, and a spacious and comfortable cockpit. The patented floor sits below the bottom of the tubes to create secondary stability when the boat is put on edge.  Like a kayak, this allows the paddler to hold the Valkyrie on edge for crossing eddylines, boofing off drops, and cutting through features.  The bow and stern rocker keep the boat high and dry and make it incredibly easy to boof over and skip out of holes and steep drops. And the speed is, well, you have to paddle it to believe it.

If you are a kayaker who is packraft curious or tired of lugging nine feet of plastic on your shoulder into the backcountry, the Valkyrie V3 is your packraft. It is also a great boat for the experienced packrafter looking to step up their whitewater game or anyone who wants to develop kayak skills in a forgiving and easy to store and travel package.

Note: High pressure is key on the Valkyrie V3. Topping it off with the Pack-A-Pump will be imperative for performance. (see the "in detail" video above for specific instructions on topping off the Valkyrie V3)

Build Configurations

Whitewater Deck

The Valkyrie comes standard with the Whitewater Deck, which provides the highest performance in whitewater. The deck keeps the boat dry so it can maintain speed through features. The Whitewater Deck features a large kayak style cockpit and includes a one-piece PEX coaming. A spray skirt is not included. We recommend the HD Spray Skirt for performance.

Cargo Fly

A standard option on the Valkyrie, the Cargo Fly is the ultimate packraft gear storage solution. It features an airtight zipper installed in the stern of the boat to allow you to load your gear inside the tubes. The system provides drier and more secure gear storage and improved paddling performance due to a lower center of gravity. The Cargo Fly is perfect for expeditions, whitewater performance, and keeping your gear dry in any conditions.

Small Internal Dry Bags may be purchased separately and are designed to work with the Cargo Fly system. The bags clip in place along each side of the tubes with a side release buckle and allow for better organization and weight balance than placing the contents of your pack loose inside the Cargo Fly. They also act as additional balanced air chambers to make it easier to get to shore in the event of a puncture.

Sizing & Specifications

The chart below shows our recommended size based on your height. The Valkyrie is a longer internally than the same size of our other whitewater packrafts, which maximizes overall length and speed. This results in a slightly less aggressive knee bend, but is a more comfortable and higher performance fit. Paddlers over 6'3" or under 5'4" may have trouble getting a good fit. Similarly, paddlers over 220lbs may find that the overall volume of the boat is too low to carry multi-day gear. The large size is optimized for a 6'0" paddler and the medium is optimized for a 5'8" paddler. Paddlers in the 5'9"-5'10" range should be able to size up or down depending on whether they prefer a tighter/looser fit or a shorter/longer boat.

*Weight includes all components except inflation bag, repair kit, spray skirt and internal dry bags for Cargo Fly.

**Packed size is a reference measurement based on folding each lengthwise edge of the boat to the center and rolling from the bow. There are many other methods of rolling and folding the boats that will result in a different packed size that may be more or less efficient for packing depending on the situation.

***The Valkyrie is a performance whitewater boat and does not have a maximum capacity as this will change based on water conditions and cargo capacity is more important than paddler weight up to a point. Paddlers of all weights up to 230lbs should experience maximum performance with 10-25lbs of cargo. Above 25 pounds of cargo will progressively impact responsiveness up to the capacity max. Paddlers heavier than 200lbs may notice additional performance decreases with more than 25 pounds of cargo. So pack light when you want to run harder whitewater.

Note: Topping off the Valkyrie V3 with the Pack-A-Pump will be imperative for performance. (see the "in detail" video above for specific instructions on topping off the Valkyrie V3)

"My first experience in the Valkyrie I could hardly believe I was paddling an inflatable. It rolled so well, boofed like a dream, surfed waves, and edged so well. I loved that boat and got many happy days on the water in it. When the production version came out, I could hardly believe that it had again improved, everything I loved about the prototype was better. No small feat! I had been involved with prototyping numerous plastic boats over the years and the production versions always seemed to fall short after numerous last minute changes to be more conservative in making sure the boat want too much for the market. I’m so happy to see that every rendition of this boat was a leap above the last and the boat that is now on the market is undoubtedly the gold standard of packrafts by which all others will be measured!"
