Revolution or revolt? Simply Revo! An ultra-light packraft, not only for white water. The Revo is a self-bailer with a sealable bailing hose. The specially developed TwinTailTM, the characteristic double stern, makes it distinctive.
The Revo is a new and unique packraft concept, which flexibly switches between calm water and whitewater. The boat can be freely configured from a stable self-bailer to an ultra-light, minimalist single. This ensures an extremely versatile range of use from long trekking to fun whitewater day trips. For this purpose the packaft uses the following constructions:VenturiTubeThe Revo CL model is a closable self-bailer, i.e. the sealable bailing hose (VenturiTube) can be closed or opened. Due to the bailing function (overflowing water can drain off by itself) the boat does not need a spraydeck. The self-bailer has many advantages, including free exit and entry, e.g. when transferring, sighting or capsizing, although capsizing is very rare with this type of boat. As a self-bailer the Revo is designed to minimise the amount of water left in the boat. Depending on the load there are no more than a few liters in the stern. The boat remains agile and fast. The tight floor mat is a necessary requirement for self-bailing (sitting above the waterline), but it also gives the boat excellent handling characteristics.TwinTailTMThe visually distinctive TwinTailTM, the V-shaped notch at the stern of the boat, is borrowed from the design of special surfboards. This "V" creates two points of contact at the stern instead of one. This provides stability and balance (as it is relatively wide), preserves agility (as it is relatively short) and creates support/guidance (due to the double edges) for good maneuverability and glide in running water. This is noticeable when bracing, edging, sweeping and accelerating. The rising bow and the sophisticated keel bounce of the rest of the hull support these handling characteristics.Comfort BackBandThe Comfort BackBand is a hybrid of an inflatable backrest and an adjustable backstrap. The backrest can be supported by the boat/seat as well as individually adjusted. It combines stability and comfort.5P thigh strapsThe classic thigh straps each have four attachment points and a grab handle. They can be ergonomically adjusted and provide a secure but detachable connection to the boat.FinmountThe mount for a skeg (directional fin) is standard on the boat. The skeg (fin) can be added for use in calm water for more tracking and paddle efficiency. Setup with floor matTo set up the boat, first it is important to position the uninflated floor mat in the uninflated boat centrally and as far forward as possible. Then inflate first the mat and then the boat (with inflation bag and hand pump). The bailing hose can be kept open (turned outward, self-bailing) or closed (turned inward). Seat configurationsSince the floor mat already reaches a certain build-up height (to ensure the steering function), there are various options as a seat (depending on preference). The included PackSeat light is comfortable but may be a bit tippy (high center of gravity). The optional FoamSeat is lower and supports the drainage of water very well (through channels). which is our recommendation in white water. Tall people (but under 100 kg) can also sit completely without seat directly on the mat.Setup without floor matWithout a floor mat the bailing hose must be closed. The bailing hose of the boat is turned inwards, rolled tightly at least three to five times and plugged together, ideally before inflation. However, it also works when the boat is assembled. Seat optionsSeat options include the PackSeat light (included), luggage (additional), FoamSeat (optional) or the Anfibio WideSeat (additional).For detailed instructions on set-up and configurations please refer to the user supplied manual.
