MRS Barracuda Solo is one of the big news from MRS the season of 2018.
The Barracuda is, with its long, narrow shape and extended waterline, especially suited for fast long distance paddling in both calm waters and white water. The Barracuda is the fastest packraft in MRS’s fleet.
The centrally positioned seat and the symmetrical bow and stern is somewhat similar to a conventional kayak.
The Barracuda is the ultimate packraft for solo paddling over long distances and during extended periods of time.
Spraydeck & equipment
The MRS Barracuda Solo is equipped with a hybrid spraydeck (dual spraydeck), and a frame and skirt. When needed, for example in dry or hot climate, the hybrid deck can be rolled and attached to the bow of the boat to create an open climate. If you paddle through wet environments or heavy rain, the hybrid spraydeck is easy to reattach, and will provide close to 100% waterproofness together with the frame and skirt. It will also protect against the cold.
The hybrid spraydeck takes the best of both worlds from MRS other types of spraydeck (the removable cruiser deck and the non-removable white water deck).
MRS Barracuda Solo has a removable and adjustable backrest, which makes the packraft well suited for paddlers of different lengths.
Barracuda Solo is the only packraft 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.
We recommend that you add a Patch n’ go repair kit to your order.
