MRS Barracuda R2 Pro
PacKraft are pleased to offer Micro Rafting Systems (MRS) packrafts in Australia. We are happy to extend our packraft range and offer our customers the quality and design of the MRS range.
The R2 stands for Race & Recreation. A new streamlined double packraft equally suited to adventure racing and recreational paddling.
The R2 Pro model includes a spraydeck which can be used in conjunction with skirts to provide kayak style protection, or it can be used as a semi-open packraft without the skirts to save weight.
The R2 Pro also includes ISS (Internal Storage System with TIZIP) as standard.
The new MRS Combi-Seats offer 2 configurations – standard cushion seating, or high saddle for kneeling, easily changeable and adjustable within minutes, so the R2 Pro can be paddled with single canoe style paddles, or double-bladed kayak paddles. Two comfort backrests finish the fit-out making it a versatile and plush packraft cockpit for longer days or paddling legs.
Retaining stability, the re-shaped longer and narrower hull design and sharper bow and stern increase the speed and performance of the Barracuda R2 Pro over classic double packrafts.
An Aramid fibre floor brings an extra level of durability to the most typically exposed and mistreated part of the packraft. A detachable skeg fin aids in tracking. 4 attachment loops front and rear allow for carrying sufficient gear for two.
Perfect for adventure racing, flatwater touring, moderate whitewater, fishing, and general recreational paddling the Barracuda R2 Pro is the premium double packraft. Whilst being bulkier and heavier than other packraft models, it retains a higher level of paddler protection, comfort, as well as performance and versatility.
When paddling low level or low volume water or when in whitewater, we recommend protecting your knees, and using the seat configuration to avoid injury as the kneeling configuration is designed for deep flatwater where underwater or exposed rocks will not be experienced.
Comes fitted as standard with the comfort backrest and Combi-Seats, spraydeck, skeg fin, and supplied with skirts, lightweight inflation bag, tie strap and repair patches.
