Kokopelli Nirvana Self-Bailing with TiZip
Kokopelli Nirvana Self-Bailing with TiZip - The perfect blend of durability and stability, the Nirvana Self-Bailing will keep you charging down even the rowdiest rapids. The Self-Bailing design excels at minimizing weight, setup complexity, is easier for constant scouting, and is faster for self-rescue when compared to a Spraydecked packraft.
It performs best in Class I-III rivers and (new for 2020) features our 840d DuPontTM Kevlar Aramid-Nylon Blend reinforced floor system. Weighing 9.7lbs (4.4kgs) and packing down to the size of a sleeping bag, the Nirvana is perfect for whitewater, backcountry trips, hiking, bikepacking, and multi-day adventures.
The Nirvana Self-Bailing is Kokopelli’s go-to whitewater packraft. Enjoy carving into eddies and surfing your favorite holes. Engineered with a narrow trim, aggressive rocker on the bow, and a large-volume stern, the Nirvana performs best in Class I – Class III.
Durability and performance are pivotal, which is why the Nirvana is built from toughest lightweight material. It features our 210d TPU-Nylon sidewalls and proprietary 840d DuPontTM Kevlar Aramid-Nylon Blend floor system.
The seams are first stitched and then welded with double-reinforced 1in (2.5cm) 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 3in (7.6cm) of floor material coverage on the sidewalls for extra reinforcement and protection.
The Inflatable Floor with Integrated Seat is made from 210 denier Diamond-Ripstop Nylon and uses a Leafield D7 valve. Starting at 7in (17.9cm) thick in the seat area, the floor tapers to 4in (10.2cm) thick from the knees to the bow. This keeps you comfortable, improves paddling position, and allows for deeper, more efficient paddle strokes.
For the main pontoon, the Nirvana features a Leafield D7 valve, the most durable valve on the planet. The same valve as 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 airCap, Feather Pump or our Inflation Tube, and Inflation Bag.
The Nirvana 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. 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 EVA Backband offers superior back-support while increasing paddling power. Leave the backband at home to cut weight. Compared to a spraydeck-sprayskirt system, the self-bailing design has several advantages. This includes reduced weight, easier recovery, faster accessibility for scouting, or in and out extreme-low-water sections.
Innovative 3-Point Thigh-Strap System. When combined with the optional 3-Point Thigh-Strap Kit it 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.
Do you need more storage space? Add 21in (53cm) TiZip, an airtight watertight zipper, to increase storage space and give you access to the inside of your packraft pontoons.
The TiZip compartment storage also integrates with the Delta Inflatable Dry Bags (Set of 2), perfect for protecting your gear or adding extra chambers of air.
