TrekRaft Expedition - The ultralight high-performance raft. The main novelty of the PackRafts of the expedition range is the possibility to stow luggage in the air tube itself.
This offers several advantages: not having to attach the equipment to the deck favours a lower centre of gravity and reduces wind exposure when paddling. Moreover, thanks to the air and equipment they contain, these bags also serve as buoyancy devices in the event of a hole in the outer hull. An additional safety feature! To minimize imbalances from the outset, the rafts have two integrated pockets - one on each side. A covered zipper allows easy and waterproof storage of the equipment.
It is so small and light that it can easily be combined with trekking or biking. It firstly allows you to enjoy everywhere and anytime the change of perspective being on the water and having a full expedition proven raft with you. The concept of TrekRafting is a very simple one: today, most people do not only do one but many outdoor activities such as hiking, trekking, cycling, paddling, skating, geocaching and many things more. TrekRafting combines all that with being on the water – everywhere and to anytime.
The term TrekRaft contains trekking and rafting (paddling) and it gets possible because a TrekRaft weighs only around 3 kg and with its ultra-small pack size it can be attached to any compact backpack. The ideas of trips you can do with your TrekRaft are absolutely versatile. Just walk a river upstream or cross-country to a river or lake, make a short break with a picnic and then paddle back. Or just combine the next hike with a few units to water. Take your TrekRaft with you on a several days lasting trekking tour. Just paddle large parts of your planned route on a river or cross the lakes and fjords. There are also more and more explicit routes that combine trekking and rafting. These are only a few selected examples of a huge range of possible and never-ending activities.
Until now, these special light weight and high-performance packrafts have been very expensive and mainly interesting for specialists. With the nortik TrekRaft these things change and it becomes an affordable hobby for almost everyone. The favorable price and the high quality speak for themselves. Let yourself be inspired by this fascinating trend sport and get into the raft! By the way: The nortik packrafts are expedition proven. There have been expeditions through Scandinavia or over the Andes Mountains with them.
Nortik use a high-performance and environmental-friendly Polyurethane (PU) material for the nortik packrafts. This very strong and durable material demonstrated its strength in many field tests. It is double coated from the inner and outer side which is also a special feature and by far not standard.
