MRS Barracuda R2 ISS
The Barracuda R2 ISS is a packraft for two persons. It’s a long packraft with an extended waterline, which makes it especially suited for fast paddeling in both calm waters and white water. The long, pointy design and its symmetrical and slightly upturned bow and stern makes it the fastest MRS packraft of today.
The Barracuda R2 ISS is great for long distance paddeling, multi/adventure sports and races, white water and expeditions, but will of course also work great at the calm fishing trip at the lake at your back yard together with your son, daughter or why not the dog. The packaft has got no spraydeck.
The Barracuda R2 ISS can be paddled alone with a kayak paddle, or together with a friend using either two kayak paddles or two canoe style paddles. We recommend our multipaddles for this kind of packraft.
MRS Nomad and Barracuda series are the only packrafts from MRS with an integrated and removable fin, for better tracking and improved speed. The fin is only recommended for use where there are no risks of hitting the bottom.
ISS (Internal Storage System)
The packraft is equipped with preinstalled ISS (internal storage system) and two large drybags (130*30 cm). ISS is essentially a TiZip zipper on the rear of the boat. You can use the zipper to store things inside the tubes of the packraft. This allows A LOT of geat to be brought on your adventures, without having to sacrifice space on the floor or bow of the boat.
MRS uses TiZips best zipper, Masterseal 10. It is pressure proof up to 500 mbar, which means it is totally safe, completely waterproof and airtight.
ISS main advantages are:
- You can store a lot of gear inside the packraft
- The things you store within ISS will always remain dry.
- Lower point of gravity makes for a more comfortable and stable ride.
- More space where you need it, e.g. where you sit.
The main disadvantage of the system is that you cannot access the gear stored inside of the ISS without letting the air out of the packraft. That is why we recommend the ISS for storing camp-related things, such as tents, sleeping bags, spare clothes, water and food for the days to come.
