The Adventure X2 is a packrafting double resp. a roomy single! With its dimensions of 178cm/305cm (inner/outer) and 31cm tubes it provides more comfort (floor space), great buoyancy (big loads) and good acceleration (hull speed), while weighing still in the range of 3,5kg (without seats). The Adventure X2 is part of the MRS StreamlineSL optimization. It is also with Internal Storage System(ISS) and/or with (removable) spraydeck available!
The Adventure X2 is a much versatile packraft. It fulfils two roles:
The Adventure X2 (‘by two’) is a fully functional two-person packraft. The boat is comfortable for two people while being compact enough to create the necessary central mass (avoiding twists in the a low pressure craft).
The Adventure X2 also qualifies as a spacious solo boat for those needing to transport high-volume loads: extra baggage, travel with children, taking bikes ("bikerafting"), travelling with dogs or any other need for extended space (such as fishing and hunting). The Adventure X2 is a true freighter among packrafts.
Weight and packed size are similar to a single packraft (3,5 kg without seats, 3,8kg in single mode, 4,3kg fully outfitted). The option of paddling with a partner provides a sweet weight/performance ratio.
The packraf has a preinstalled soft mount for a removable fin/skeg for better tracking and increased speed. A small fin (mini skeg) is included in the delivery. A larger, more effective fin (Anfibio Skeg) can be chosen optional or purchased later.
Characteristics and Use
The Adventure X2 is a true a packraft, ideal for amphibious travel, best suited to still and calm floating water. The long waterline provides increased speed (6 km/h) and good tracking. The high-volume bow and the large, paralle side tubes provide great buoyancy (260kg).
Nevertheless, the boat can handle class I-II wave trains just fine. When carrying two paddlers it is not a specific white water boat however!
If used as a single the Adventure X2 is as white water worthy as other packrafts (class II-III). Performance is limited only by the lack of the spray deck and the long hull (less maneuverable and limited rigidity). Yet, body fit is actually quite good, thanks the front seat used as a foot brace.
Used as a double we recommend paddling canoe style facing forward; an efficient and elegant stroke with a good posture. Doing so simultaneously ensures straight tracking and a single-bladed paddle is also lighter. Of course it is possible to use a double-bladed kayak paddle when paddling solo or with the partner.
The raft is inflated with a big nylon inflation bag which attaches to the boat via a screw-in valve. Scoop up air and push it into the boat.
Your Adventure X2 will be shipped with two different seats to provide variable seating configurations.
The front seat is a block tied in to produce an elevated position when using the boat as a double (ideal for canoe style paddling) or featuring a foot brace for the soloist.
The seat configuration in the back is a standard block seat used to gain an elevated position, again for efficient single blade paddling. Used as a single or with a kayak paddle, the standard seat can be used in the classic way.
Fitting two people AND two large packs can by tricky at times. Purists will forgo the seats and sit on their baggage which saves weight and space.
Like all Packrafts the MRS Adventure X2 is made from urethan coated nylon of excellent adhesive strength. As such being light, abrasion resistant, UV tolerant, non-aging and flexible at low temperatures. The smooth and flexible fabric is a lot tougher than the boats weight and pack size would indicate. However, reparability or adding attachment is the same as similar fabrics using LifePatch
Manufacturing is carried out in small batches (handbuilt products). All products have a three-year warranty.
One of the most versatile packrafts at all, for moving water, still water and moderate whitewater. Not a lot heavier than a single, but capable to take a partner. A classic for combined trips on water and land.
