Features

CONSTRUCTION & MATERIAL 

Durability and performance are pivotal, which is why the Nirvana is built from our toughest lightweight material. It features our 210d TPU Nylon sidewalls and proprietary 840d DuPontTM Kevlar® Aramid-Nylon Blend* floor system. 

The seams are first stitched and then welded with double-reinforced 1in (2.5cm) wide seam tape. Additionally, 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 (7.6cm) of floor material coverage on the sidewalls for extra reinforcement and protection.

The Inflatable Seat is made from 210 denier Diamond-Ripstop Nylon and uses a Stem Valve. This keeps you comfortable, improves paddling position, and allows for deeper, more efficient paddle strokes.

For the main pontoon, the Nirvana features a Leafield D7 valve, the most durable valve on the planet. The same valve as used in all full-size rafts, the Leafield 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 Leafield D7 also easily integrates with the all new TRiB airCap, Feather Pump or our Inflation Tube, and Inflation Bag.

SHAPE & DESIGN
The Nirvana is one-chambered (main-pontoon), has a moderate trim, aggressive rocker on the bow, and a large-volume stern. 

Combined with the extra-large 12in (30cm) diameter pontoons and higher floor-to-sidewall attachment point, the Nirvana is perfect for crushing whitewater and hauling gear safely.

The adjustable kayak-style EVA Backband offers superior back-support while increasing paddling power. Leave the backband at home to cut weight. 

3-POINT THIGH-STRAP SYSTEM INTEGRATION 
All Whitewater Series packrafts have our innovative 3-Point Thigh-Strap System. When combined with the optional 3-Point Thigh-Strap Kit it provides the paddler additional control over the packraft. The additional control allows the paddler to fully engage their core and leg muscles, which is especially important on challenging whitewater. For more advanced paddlers, they also present the opportunity to roll your packraft like a traditional kayak.

ATTACHMENT POINTS
There are four strategically placed 1in (2.5cm) Mil-Spec Webbing D-Rings on the front of the packraft and two on the stern. Securely store your gear with our Animas River Bag or Delta Deck Pack, attach your bike to your packraft, or run a safety-line.

OPTIONAL TiZip 
Do you need more storage space? Add our 21in (53cm) TiZip, an airtight watertight zipper, to increase storage space and give you access to the inside of your packraft pontoons. The TiZip compartment storage also integrates with our Delta Inflatable Dry Bags (Set of 2), perfect for protecting your gear or adding extra chambers of air.

NOTE: Lightly lubricate your TiZip zipper with the included silicon lubricant every single use. Avoid getting any debris in the zipper teeth. Store in a temperature stable, low-UV, and low-humidity environment if possible. For more instruction on lubrication and TiZip care, see the TiZip Lubricant Product Page or the Product Manual.

CARE & CLEANING
Always rinse your packraft off with clean water once you are off the water. Be sure to clean out any debris that may have accumulated in the seams of your packraft. Focus on where the pontoons meet the floor or spraydeck especially. Allow to dry fully. Store loosely rolled in a climate controlled, UV-free environment to extend the life as much as possible.

Ordering your packraft

For 2020 we will be running a rolling pre-order for rafts on a bi-weekly basis.

Ordering Kokopelli packrafts - how it works:

  1. You place your pre-order
  2. We check stock with Kokopelli and charge your card if your raft is in stock (or send direct to you if we have stock). Kokopelli keeps healthy stock levels on hand.
  3. Your raft is sent by UPS from the states - usually about 10 days to arrive in NZ from when we place the order.
  4. We clear your raft through NZ customs - about 2-3 days normally
  5. We receive your raft and ship to you with Aramex Couiers.
  6. You go and have awesome adventures!

Feel free to contact us for more info.
