The Twain is a 2-person packraft that easily fits in a backpack or under the handlebars of your bike. With a kayak this packable, you’ll be able get out there and educate yourself (and a friend!) on what the world looks like. The Twain is ideal for lake settings – whether you’re out for a recreation day paddle, or you’re on a week-long canoe trip exploring a series of lakes. The Twain excels at lakes, ocean, and Flat – Class 1 water with your two or four-legged friend, hauling all the gear in the world, or just finding a patch of still water to let nature fill your soul. The Twain is engineered to remain stable due to a flat hull profile, medium-sized rocker, and track straight with the removable tracking fin.
CONSTRUCTION & MATERIAL
The Twain features our 210 denier TPU Nylon sidewalls and proprietary 840 denier TPU Nylon floor. The seams are first stitched and then welded with double-reinforced 1 in (2.5 cm) 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.
The 4 in (10.2 cm) thick Inflatable Seats are made from 210 denier Diamond-Ripstop Nylon and use a Stem Valve. This keeps you comfortable and improves paddling position which allows for deeper, more efficient paddle strokes.
For the main front and rear pontoon valves, the Twain features a Leafield D7 valve, the most durable and bomber valve on the planet. 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, Inflation Bag, and Foot Pump with Pressure Gauge.
