									Whitewater >>
Whitewater kayaking is an exciting sport that involves paddling down rivers and rapids – from simple,
gently moving water to demanding, challenging rapids. The sport encompasses a wide variety of
disciplines, from creek boating to river running to play boating, and each offers different ways to
appreciate the river. With so many approaches to choose from, there is a style of whitewater paddling
for everyone. Whitewater paddling is becoming increasingly accessible to a wider population thanks
to better equipment and improved designs. Gear made specifically for kids, and in a wider range of
adult sizes, has also made whitewater paddling more appealing in recent years. Specified boat and gear
designs have grown to meet the needs of each style of whitewater paddling. Creekboats tend to be larger
volume with significant rocker, bulbous ends, and a more rounded hull. Playboats are generally shorter
and smaller volume, often with a flat hull, slicey ends and sharp chines. River running boats generally
utilize a blend of creekboat and playboat characteristics, aiming for a balance between stability and
playability. Boats, paddles, PFDs, and helmets are designed distinctly to cater to the specific demands
of paddlers on all types of whitewater. Countless accessories also exist to make paddling easier, more
comfortable, and more feasible in a variety of weather conditions.

      Eskimo > Salto Evolution

      Eskimo’s revised state-of-the-art creeker. The new Salto
      Evolution has increased volume in the stern area making it
      easier to correct and control when it’s getting tough. The Salto
      is predictable when resurfacing, has an almost automatic will to
      boof, and is very easy to roll. X-ribs on the front and back deck
      improve stiffness, safety, and weight reduction.

      and Bernhard Mauracher, the Pure is a creeker that couples a
      modern hull design and modern features with the outstanding
      reliability and durability of Prijon’s stiff HTP material. Many
      paddlers have been waiting for a boat like this - a creek boat
      that performs and lasts. It is fast, it turns on the spot, and it
      will keep you safe, whatever the river throws at you!

      Pyranha > 2010 Burn

      The dependable performance and features of Pyranha’s benchmark
      Burn have made it the weapon of choice for many of the World’s
      leading creek paddlers, expedition paddlers and coaches since
      its inception 4 years ago. Feedback from Pyranha’s world class
      network of paddlers and dealers have helped them tweak the
      Burn’s legendary design with subtle performance enhancing
      modifications. Key 2010 Features: Raised and reprofiled front
      rocker to give more control over monster drops without losing
      forward speed. More ‘V’ in the front deck sheds water better
      and gives improved directional control after resurfacing. Knee
      recesses slightly lowered and rounded to give increased paddle
      clearance and improved paddler to kayak contact. Available in
      S, M and L sizes.

Big Dog > DropZone

When you want the ulimate in big water ability you need the
reassurance and predictability of the DropZone. The DropZone
is a high volume, displacement-hulled creek boat that, as the
name suggests is ideal for gnarly descents and tight, steep
lines. Also great for those trips further-a-field that often
require a degree of gear to be carried, its displacement hull
ensures that even when laden, performance is maintained and
handling remains predictable. Soft rails maintain the feel of
modern hulls, but without tripping, and the voluminous deck
profiles allow the DropZone to resurface smoothly and evenly
under control. For extra safety and security, the DropZone
features double deck pillars (front and rear) boled to a seperate
rotomoulded hull stiffener and seat combination. There’s also a
unique Big Dog footblock and six drop-forged grab handles for
comfort and control in any situation.

Dragorossi > Critical Mass

The Critical Mass is designed to ride up and over everything the
river has to throw at you. Its length is not there for speed, but
for reach: to reach over the chasm between the lip of a drop,
and the back of the hole at the bottom. To reach over all the
funny water that messes with you between stacked multiple
drops, when you simply cannot be messed with. Length for
reach, but not at the expense of turning. Put the Critical Mass
up against boats a foot shorter, and it still turns better. That’s
because creeking is all about turning - sometimes at the very
last instant before dropping over something horrendous.

       Exo > Demon

       The Demon is Exo’s high-performance weapon for steep creeking
       and big drops. The low barycentre and smooth rocker line
       make it stable and fast, while an indicated displacement hull
       facilitates edging and rolling. The Demon’s compact design and
       thorough volume distribution ensure quick resurfacing in steep
       water while features like four grab handles plus two carabiner
       attachement points povide maximum safety. The comfortable
       interior of an ergonomic seat and adjustable puncture-proof
       footrest round the boat off and make it a great choice for your
       next whitewater mission.

       Fluid > Solo

       The Solo series became a classic in the relatively short period
       since its inception, and a benchmark for high performance
       creekboats. Its unique design enables it to perform equally well
       on low and big volume runs, steep and technical creeks but also
       when loaded for multi-day expeditions.

       Riot > Magnum

       From Iceland to South America the word has spread and pieces
       of evidence have been left all over the place: the Magnum is
       your best bet if you want to tackle the biggest and steepest
       waters this planet has to offer. Some say it’s all in the way the
       sleek deck shape and rocker profile make it resurface gradually
       without throwing you on your back. Others say the way we
       shaped the tail and worked the volume behind the cockpit
       keeps you from being pushed into bad corners and prevents
       stern squirts, so you get exactly where you want to be in the
       first place. Our take on that matter? Provide paddlers with
       thoughtfully designed, down-river tools to express themselves
       and you won’t believe what your eyes will see.

 Robson > Charger

 Name is program. Are the rivers gaining volume, or do the
 guys get bigger and bigger? Anyway, this boat suits even
 Frankensteins with shoe size 13, a height of more than 6foot
 5 and an overall weight of more than 200 pounds, as nice as
 safely. The rest is business as usual – a planning hull with a
 disc, an adjustable bulkhead and a new Pro Logic seat system
 system for maximum control, no matter how steep it gets or
 how much water the creek is actually führen.

a knee, you’ll be carving into eddies with absolute control. So
if you’re just getting into creeking or an old pro, Wave Sport’s
got the Habitat for you.

Dragorossi > Mad Boy

The Mad Boy is Dragorossi’s newest addition to the river running
line of kayaks. The focus of this design is anything but simple,
because its very nature as “advanced river runner” means it’ll
be subjected to all the extremes from huge volume runs to the
steepest of creeks. This presents an interesting design dilemma
because the very thing that makes a boat good at one makes
it bad at the other. This is why it has taken almost 2 years to
bring this design to market from its first conception. The Mad
Boy is as at home on a cascading vertical steep creek as it is
on a raging monstrous flooded river. It is fast, but without
affecting its ability to boof easily. It turns on a dime, punches
through the nastiest holes, and will skip effortlessly across the
boniest slides without catching an edge.

Length: 253 cm - Width: 63 cm - Cockpit dims: 86 x 47cm - Weight: 18 kg - Volume: large - Paddler weight range: 45 - 100 kg

       Jackson Kayak > Sidekick

       The Sidekick is the smallest version of Jackson’s Hero series,
       made for getting your kids in touch with advanced whitewater.
       This boat offers all the best qualities you’d look for in a good
       friend to go downriver. Predictable, stable and totally goes
       with the flow. The stern on the Hero series has the volume
       to help you keep looking downstream after drops, instead of
       back into the hole. The Sidekick bursts through holes staying
       on the surface and keeping you upright like Superman busting
       through a wall with a smile on his face. For those venturing
       into creeks with this boat, expect to feel more confident due
       to the incredible stability and ease of paddling and rolling.

       Perception > Sonic

       The Perception Sonic is a river runners dream come true. This
       boat is for any situation, designed with the volume and comfort
       demanded by today’s white water paddler. Whatever your
       ability, you will appreciate the control given by the softened
       chines, forgiving rails and highly responsive hull, even on
       the most unpredictable water. For larger paddlers the Super
       Sonic offers a more roomy fit. Features include: • Superlinear
       Polyethylene shell • Adjustable seat • Adjustable padded
       backrest • Adjustable thigh braces • Microcell foam walls •
       2 x security bars • Adjustable pedal footrests (upgradable to
       adjustable bulkhead footrest).

       Riot > Thunder

       What if we told you all that current is on your side from now
       on? That’s true: you are not going down river to fight anything
       but to wisely use energy that’s already there, at your disposal.
       The thing here is to know when and how much you have to
       take from it, and we believe your equipment should be of some
       support for that. Take our Thunder for example: a fast, flat hull
       with just the right amount of edge combined with enough deck
       volume to keep you floating high so you can effortlessly carve
       into and out of eddies or cruise across currents, surfing curlers.
       All of this so you can get right where you planned to be once
       you get in the midst of the action.
       Features include: Unity seating system • Suregrip thighbraces
       • Adjustable creek footbrace • Anti-theft bar • Four tubular
       webbing grab loops • Water bottle • Drainplug

Teksport > Xile 260

When developing the Xile 260 Teksport threw away the rule
book, and designed the boat from scratch to excel at boosting
paddlers confidence in moving water, helping to maximize
paddler progression. Its unique hull has been developed
through extensive testing to create an incredibly fast, yet
stable and forgiving ride – just as ideal for surfing and carving
as it is for learning the fundamentals of river paddling. The Xile
260’s balanced volume distribution and additional buoyancy
out at the rail ensure the boat remains stable and predictable
in those more awkward situations too.
With class leading foot room, fully adjustable outfitting, and
an exceptional carrying capacity – The Xile is an ideal choice
for those looking for a versatile boat – ideal for a wide range
of paddler skill levels, and for use in a wide range of paddling
situations.

      Jackson Kayak > 2010 Fun

      Just when you thought kayaking couldn’t get more fun comes
      the new lineup of Jackson Kayak’s best-selling whitewater
      boats. Giant smiles and whoops of excitement echoing down
      the river, served as testimony to the enthusiastic reception
      the new Funs got when they were introduced at Gauley Fest
      this fall. One more gallon of volume and improved deck shape
      result in a better river runner and bigger looping boat too.
      A slicier shape reduces water resistance making it easier to
      get vertical in flatwater and cartwheel at every spot. Only 1”
      shorter but improved hull shape makes it go faster on waves or
      downriver and able to carry more speed through crisply carved
      turns. Rainbow colors. Kid-sized Fun 1, Fun 1.5. Adult 2Fun,
      Fun, 4Fun

      Big Dog > Havoc

      The Jekyll and Hyde of the Big Dog range, the Havoc is as
      playable as many freestyle kayaks, yet remaining as comfortable,
      fast and forgiving as some river-running designs. Although
      heavily influenced by the more focused Kaos, every design
      feature is tuned to give this slightly longer design unrivalled
      versatility. The Havoc is fantastic for freestyle paddlers too tall
      for ultra-short playboats but also provides a genuine one-boat
      solution for those with less competitive ideals. More than able
      to surf, loop and cartwheel at your favourite playspot, Havoc
      retains the drive and speed to make moves around the river,
      making it a true all river play boat...

      Jackson Kayak > 2010 All-Star

      Actions speak louder than words so here’s a few stats about
      the Jackson Kayak 2010 All-Star. Since its debut in June, the
      2010 All-Star has swept the senior men’s podium in three major
      events: Teva Mountain Games, FIBArk Whitewater Festival and
      ICF Freestyle World Championships. In fact at Worlds, the All-
      Star won 12 of 15 available medals and accounted for nearly
      50 percent of all boats paddled. Shorter and lighter translates
      to faster and bigger airs. No matter what level you paddle at
      now, Jackson Kayak’s 2010 Star series will take you to the next
      level from the minute you climb aboard. New Mon-Star makes
      playboating fun even for linebacker-sized boaters. Available
      now in very cool new mixed color combos.

       Titan Kayaks > Titan 1

       A boat designed for beginners to excel in and professionals to
       change the sport in. All the essentials have been covered to
       create a boat that is forgiving and fast, loose but with edges
       that will bite on a carve, has a quicker edge to edge transition
       creating a smoother release, along with a 45-degree off water
       trajectory. All of these features have then been combined with
       newer more advanced concepts such as on edge toe-to-knee
       sweep scoops in the nose and secondary rails on the back edges
       allowing paddlers to release from further back off the tail for
       even bigger moves.
       The idea is simple. To give paddlers all that they need to move
       from a beginner getting into their first freestyle boat to a pro
       looking to push things to the next level, all in one neat little
       package.

      2010, the Fusion and the Fusion small offer the option to find
      both the perfect fit for paddlers and also the perfect outfitting
      as well. Whether you want the ulimate in WW outfitting provided
      by the Connect 30 system or the River Tour outfitting that
      consists or a simple flip-top back rest you can adjust for either
      performance and comfort. Up or down, you choose and it only
      takes a second to change. The tried and tested Pyranha skeg
      system adds a great feature to both models of Fusion allowing
      you to track in a straight line and the drag reducing skeg box
      allows the water to flow straight out of the stern of the kayak.

Grabner > Jump

Grabner, the Austrian manufacturer of high quality inflatable
canoes, recently came up with an innovative product that clears
out difficulties, where solid-hull whitewater kayaks become
problematic: storage at home and transportation on the way
is not always easy with an every increasing number of boats
in your quiver.
For travelling by car a roof rack or trailer is required, and
transportation by train or plane is everything but convenient
with all your whitewater gear.
Given the fact that whitewater trips to distant locations
worldwide are becoming increasingly popular, time has come
to design a boat, which meets all the requirements of a short-
length whitewater kayak, but offering easy transportation and
storage at the same time.
This is why Grabner came up with the idea of introducing
the Jump, an innovative inflatable kayak, that meets all
expectations of travelling whitewater enthusiasts.

Jackson >Dynamic Duo

With the Dynamic Duo, Jackson Kayak brings to the marketplace
a performance-oriented tandem whitewater kayak to double the

Kayak lineup of well-proven whitewater boats. Designed for
an optimum combined weight range of 265 – 500 pounds, the
stern cockpit can comfortably accommodate paddlers weighing
as much as 260 pounds while the bow can fit those weighing
up to 200 pounds. Thanks to more than a decade of professional
design expertise, the Dynamic Duo engineering offers good
performance over a wide range of weights and distributions fore
and aft. Available in standard Jackson Kayak colors.
