MRS Ponto are simple and clean packrafts without spraydeck. Ponto are made out of the same strong and robust materials as every other MRS packrafts.
Ponto is especially suited for people that demands a little more comfort and space. Maybe you need to bring that big pile of wood on your next adventure, or why not your bike? Ponto is the ultimate packraft when you are solo, but need to bring a lot of stuff, a dog or a bike. Or maybe you just want that extra space all alone.
Ponto is suitable for calm water and easy white water (class 1-2).
To save weight and volume, and to make it easier to manage gear, dogs and bikes, Ponto is delivered without spraydeck.
Every MRS packraft are made out of polyurethane coated nylon, which is a material that is UV-resistant, tear-resistant, very tolerant for ageing, and also flexible in low temperatures. The packrafts have sewn and welded seams and are handmade.
We strongly suggest that you add a Patch n Go Kit to your order, in case of repair needs.
ISS (Internal Storage System)
The packraft can be bought with preinstalled ISS (internal storage system) and two large drybags. 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.
The packraft is delivered with an installed (and removable) fin for better tracking and higher max speed.
