The Barracuda R2 is a tandem packraft with performance hull design providing more speed and extra space, appreciated by travelling paddlers and packrafters with preference for performance on the water.
The expansion in packrafting calls the Barracuda R2 a refined travel boat, a progressive packraft for two. R2 stands likewise for Race or Recreation - just like your preference, to be used with your partner any case. Calling for space and speed, the Barracuda R2 is a fully functional two-person packraft. The Barracuda R2 is part of the MRS StreamlineSL optimization.
Kayak and canoe in one packraft
The way over three-meter Barracuda R2 has a dynamic hull design. The pointed bow matches the elongated stern to create a long waterline with a well-balanced rocker, providing the greatest speed for the boat length. As a result the Barracuda remains stable and agile.
The snug kneeling position straddling the removable seats provides efficient canoe-style paddling with its superior visibility. Turning the seat 90° makes a comfortable cushion. Both paddlers will have a backrest. Especially taller people appreciate the 217 cm long interior space for sitting.
The floor features an Aramid fiber for exceptional tear resistance – partly cut fabric cannot be torn by hand. The excellent adhesive qualities of the PU coating makes the boat extremely durable, being light, UV-resistant, non-ageing and flexible at low temperatures.
The Barracuda R2 is for couples and partners. It excels on anything to achieve fun results by two:
The style is only set by yourself, whether it be relaxed explorations or ambitious targets.
The boat can be used on lakes, rivers, easy whitewater and sheltered ocean bays alike, but mind good teamwork and reasonable action on moving water. The possibility of transport in airplanes, RVs, trains and busses make it a perfect travel boat.
Like most packrafts, the Barracuda R2 has a non-inflatable floor so when used in the kneeling position beyond deep, calm water we recommend wearing knee pads, like from skating or a foam floor mat. However, in seating position the plain floor is no harm (having a seat cushion).
For good and safe performance it is important to pay attention to the right air pressure (especially in cold water). Because of the dynamics in a double, low pressure can lead to distortions and bends of the hull.
In the unlikely event of sustaining damage, repairs can be done in the field with LifePatch, which bonds to the urethane surface extremely well. Small pinholes can be sealed with Stormsure, a liquid urethane sealant. Just any major damage, should they happen, can be repaired with spare fabric and contact glue at home or in our workshop.
Racy design with parallel sided hull, elongated/extended bow and stern (symmetric) and well-balanced rocker (slightly upturned, pointy bow and stern), slim body fit, four stern grab loops, four bow grab loops, two long loops inside, main non-return (one way) valve
