This frameless R2 beast is hungry for the challenges of paddling big, technical whitewater. Essential features include a quick draining mesh floor with knee protection, built in foot cups, a repositionable thwart, and rigid cross tubes.

  • All colors available for sale some may have a lead time of 4-6 weeks to build
  • Comes with 1 thwart
The Sabertooth can be rowed with a small frame or paddled with an R2-R4 team. It's fun, easy to paddle, tracks well, but can turn on a dime! The rockered tubes flow over waves, climb out of holes, and can help stick a landing over steep drops. The floor is durable Superman mesh for instant draining and won't scoop in water. A sleeve of foam zipped into a pocket on the floor provides knee protection for those who prefer to paddle with one knee down and the other over the thwart. The floor has two foot cups in the stern to help keep paddlers locked into place. D-ring handles installed in the bow and stern make the Sabertooth easy for two people to carry. The Sabertooth now comes standard with one thwart that adjusts in the cockpit for the best fit. Built in cross tubes and the AIREcell system add rigidity so that the boat won't bend or "taco" in big water. The Sabertooth is a whitewater animal! It turns your local river into a playground, eats up technical tributaries, and is a blast in high volume water.
