The Nirvana Spraydeck is Kokopelli’s go-to whitewater packraft. The integrated spraydeck and sprayskirt system will keep you dry while paddling. The Nirvana Spraydeck has a narrow trim and an aggressive rocker in the bow, making it great for carving into eddies and surfing your favorite hole.

NEW FOR 2019

The Nirvana Spraydeck gets two additional velcro points (front and back) for the Combing-Ring Tube, bringing the total number of velcro points to four (front, back, left side, and right side).

 

CONSTRUCTION & MATERIAL

The Nirvana Spraydeck is built from our toughest lightweight material and features a 210 denier TPU Nylon sidewalls and 840 denier TPU Nylon floor. The seams are first stitched and then welded with double-reinforced 1 in (2.5 cm) wide seam tape. Additionally, the pontoon-to-floor attachment point is glued to the sidewall and then reinforced with v-seam tape around the entire interior of the packraft.

Whitewater Series packrafts also have an additional 3 in (7.6 cm) of floor material coverage on the the sidewalls for extra reinforcement and protection.

The 4 in (10.2 cm) thick Inflatable Seat is made from 210 denier Diamond-Ripstop Nylon and uses a Stem Valve. This keeps you comfortable and improves paddling position which allows for deeper, more efficient paddle strokes.

For the front and rear pontoon, the Nirvana Spraydeck features a Leafield D7 valve, the most durable and bomber valve on the planet. Used in all full-size rafts, the Leafield is made from roto-molded plastic and is threaded and screwed together, not welded or glued. Meaning your valve will never come un-welded or fall apart. The Leafield D7 also easily integrates with the all new TRiB airCapFeather Pump or our Inflation TubeInflation Bag, and Foot Pump with Pressure Gauge.

SHAPE & DESIGN

The Nirvana Self-Bailing features two-chambers (Inflatable Floor with Integrated Seat + full-pontoon) for added safety, a moderate trim, aggressive rocker on the bow, and a large-volume stern which gives it great Class 1 – Class 3 handling capability and stability. Combined with the extra-large 12 in (30 cm) diameter pontoons and higher floor-to-sidewall attachment point, the Nirvana Self-Bailing is perfect for crushing whitewater and hauling gear safely.

The adjustable kayak-style Backband offers superior back-support while increasing paddling power.

NOTE: The Backband can be left at home to save weight if necessary.

The Self-Bailing design has several advantages including reduced weight (compared to a spraydeck-sprayskirt system), easier self-recovery, faster accessibility for scouting, or in and out extreme-low-water sections, and it opens up the entire interior of the packraft for gear storage.

3-POINT THIGH-STRAP SYSTEM

All Whitewater Series packrafts have our proprietary 3-Point Thigh-Strap System which when combined with the optional 3-Point Thigh-Strap Kit provides the paddler additional control over the packraft. The additional control allows the paddler to fully engage their core and leg muscles, which is especially important on challenging whitewater. For more advanced paddlers, they also present the opportunity to roll your packraft like a traditional kayak.

NOTE: The 3-Point Thigh-Strap Kit is multi-purpose and also functions as the Shoulder-Strap Kit for the Animas River Bag.

TIZIP ZIPPER

Not enough? Add our 21 in (53 cm) Tizip to make your raft even more versatile. The Nirvana Self-Bailing with the optional Tizip zipper increases storage giving you access to the inside of the packrafts pontoons. The Tizip compartment storage also integrates with our Delta Inflatable Dry Bags (Set of 2) which are perfect for protecting your gear or adding extra chambers of air.

NOTE: Lightly lubricate your Tizip zipper with the included silicon lubricant every single use. For more instruction on lubrication and Tizip care, see the Tizip Lubricant (8 g) or the Product Manual.

ATTACHMENT POINTS

There are four strategically placed nylon loop d-rings on the front of the packraft to allow secure storage of gear or fatbike which also integrates with the Animas River Bag. Additionally, the Nirvana Self-Bailing has two d-rings on the stern of the packraft allowing you to run a safety-line or store more gear.

NOTE: Always follow the Clean Lines Principles.
