MRS Barracuda R2 Pro
MRS Barracuda R2 Pro is, together with the MRS Barracuda Solo, new for the packrafting season of 2018.
The Barracuda R2 Pro 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 MRS Barracuda R2 Pro 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 spraydeck of the Barracuda is non-removable. It is extremely water resistant. Together with the frame and skirt, you will stay dry even in the harshest of conditions.
MRS Barracuda R2 Pro 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.
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.
