MRS Adventure X2

The Adventure X2 is a fully functional two-person raft that works best paddled canoe style. It also makes a flexible and roomy solo boat. Also with Internal Storage System (ISS) and/or removable spraydeck available!


The Adventure X2 is a packrafting double resp. a roomy single! With its dimensions of 173cm/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 3,65kg (without seats). The Adventure X2 is part of the MRS StreamlineSoptimization. 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 (3,65 kg without seats, 3,9kg in single mode, 4,1kg fully outfitted). The option of paddling with a partner provides a sweet weight/performance ratio.

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.

Seating

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. 
 
Material info
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 LifePatchStormsure or Helaplast.
 
Manufacturer info
MRS (Micro Rafting System) produces water sports equipment in far east. Manufacturing is carried out in small batches (handbuilt products). The packraftss are a recent addition to a range of full-size rafts and inflatable kayaks. All MRS products have a three-year warranty.
 
Conclusion 

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.

When I bought this packraft, I was hoping it would be the most all round packraft I could buy and the best for everything I needed it for. I thought it would be the best for day-long activities solo, with a friend, camping trips on the water, and for bikerafting. It turned out to be almost perfect.

For bikerafting though, it's just very big to take along. Even though I did take it on my back when I went bikepacking in Scotland, it's quite heavy and voluminous for that. Perhaps that's due to having chosen both the spray deck and the TiZip... I would still recommend a different model for bikepacking, like the Alpha XC (comparable to the Alpacka Caribou it seems, although much cheaper), or the Delta MX.

Other than for bikerafting, this one is perfect for all the other needs. It's fast, it's spacious when I'm alone on the water, I can easily take it along with me in my small car (and for day trips in my backpack on the bicycle), it's very robust, big enough for 2 (ok, barely), and easy to pack for camping. Compared to my friend who only has the Delta, I can relax much more in this one while maintaining a higher cruising speed. I recently bought an Alpha specifically for bikerafting and will keep using this one for everything else. (Already having a Supai for trekkings by foot.)

Ich habe das Adventure X2 mit abnehmbarer Spritzdecke.
Bisher habe ich damit drei Tagestouren auf einem ruhigen Wiesenfluss und auf einem See gemacht.

Es liegt sehr stabil im Wasser. Ein/Aussteigen geht ebenfalls fr mich als Anfnger problemlos.
Da ich auf ffentliche Verkehrsmittel angewiesen bin wird das Boot und alles was ich Unterwegs mitnehmen will in einem Duffle durch die Gegend gezogen.

Wenn ich offen fahre, lassen sich die Fsse gut unter dem vorderen nicht aufgeblasenen Sitz vor der Sonne verstecken.

Die serienmssige Rckenlehnung empfinde ich als unbequem. Der mitgelieferte hufeisenfrmige Zusatzsitz ist eigentlich dafr gedacht den hinteren Sitz zu erhhen, Er liefert eine passable Rckenlehne, wenn er zwischen Boot und nicht aufgeblasener Rckenlehne plaziert wird. Eventuell probiere ich mal die Komfort-Rcklehne.

Eine Erweiterungsoption wren vorne noch zwei weitere Laschen um den Duffle und/oder ein Faltrad besser befestigen zu knnen. Allerdings braucht man dann noch eine Absttzung auf den Schluchen. Ich nutze dafr die zusammengesteckten Stechpaddelgriffe meine Multipaddles.

Knallige Sonne ausserhalb des Wassers erhht den Druck relativ schnell. Daran sollte man denken wenn man das Boot in freier Sonne aufbaut und dann nicht sofort ins Wasser legt. Dann erlebt man auf den ersten Kilometers ein etwas weiches Paddelvergngen. Besonders unglcklich wenn auf dem Fluss das betreten des Ufers verboten ist. Also lieber erst mal an der Leine ins Wasser und sich fertig machen. Dann noch einmal kurz raus alles draufpacken und los gehts.

Schade ist, dass ich bisher fr die Schallen der Befestigungspunkte fr die Rckenlehne des vorderen Sitzes keine Gegenstcke gefunden habe. So kann man diese nicht fr andere Verwendungszwecke nutzen (auer man nimmt die des Rcksitzes wodurch dieser dann nicht bzw. nicht schnell einsatzfhig ist).

Als echter Zweisitzer habe ich das Adventure noch nicht verwendet. Beim Probesitzen musste ich meine Knie auf beiden Sitzpositionen stark anziehen. So mchte ich nicht mehrere Stunden sitzen mssen. Und ein Doppelpaddel wre so fr mich auch schlecht zu handhaben (Hat schon einen Grund warum fr die Nutzung als Zweisitzer Stechpaddel empfohlen werden). Ob ein erhhtes Sitzen oder sogar as Sitzen auf dem Heck hier helfen wrde, habe ich nicht ausprobiert.

Die Spritzdecke kann man nach vorne Aufrollen. Es ist aber nicht mglich die Decke nur zum Teil aufzurollen. Dafr msste der Reissverschluss auf der Lngsseite in die andere Richtung verlaufen. Dann knnte ich mir aber vorstellen, dass er sich von selbst etwas ffnet wenn man geschlossen fahren will und Wasser eindringen kann.

MfG Holger
