LONGSHORE SL260 and SL260 - Super Light Packrafts

LONGSHORE SL260 and SL260 - Super Light Packrafts

from 500.00

Basics:

Superlight open packraft. 

Description:

The SL220 and SL260 are our lightest packrafts at 2.73kg and 3.24 kg respectively, including the seat, backrest, inflation bag and carry strap. As such they are perfect for carrying in a backpack on multi-day trips.

The tubes are constructed from 210D nylon with single outside urethane coating. The floor is constructed from 840D nylon with double urethane coating and the robust seams are stitched and then heat welded with tape. 

These packrafts feature an inflatable U-seat and backrest and a Boston one-way valve, which allows rapid inflation in around 3 minutes using the Inflation Bag. Multiple webbing tie down points at the stern and bow allowing you to strap gear (or a bike) to the packraft.

What the difference:

Both models are identical except for length:

The SL260 is ideally sized for bikerafting. It is broad and stable enabling you to strap a bike to the bow. It also has enough length to ensure you don’t hit the bike with your paddle when reaching forward to take a stroke. It also deflates and rolls into a compact package that can be carried on a bike.

The SL220 is our lightest packraft and is ideal for weight conscious ultra-light hikers that want to cover some distance on foot but also paddle down rivers or cross lakes.
