The newest member of rafting fleet was suggested by one of our most experienced guides in West Virginia and was specifically designed to offer an affordable alternative to the overpriced mini-rafts on the market today. It is the perfect raft to affordably introduce you to the sport of rafting. For those looking for a solid raft to R2 with this model absolutely can't be beat. See this great article for more information on what customers are looking for in a raft this size (Canoe & Kayak article).
For those looking to compare the quality of our products vs. our competitors the video below should end all thoughts about the conditions our rafts can manage. This is pretty amazing Class V+ water! If a picture is worth 1,000 words then our video section showing these rafts in Class III, IV, and V whitewater truly speak volumes. Lastly, check out this video (click here) of 11 year old Cayden "Uno" Eckel running an earlier version of the 9'6" Saturn Whitewater Raft with his dad on the Umpqua River at over 5,000 CFS. If you don't get chills watching Cayden high side (1:29 mark of video) you must not be running whitewater through your veins.
With hundreds of these rafts on the water since we introduced them 5 years ago it's remarkable to see what customers have put them through throughout the years. If you want an R2 raft and are looking for something has and will stand the test of time, you have to consider the Saturn.
The lightweight and portable RD290X river raft is great for both fishing and whitewater rafting. The material is extremely thick and can handle all types of abuse. The higher rocker provides an exhilarating ride on whitewater like no other raft! It is an excellent whitewater paddle boat for 4 people or a nifty rowing rig for 1 person and lightweight gear.
Our inflatable thwarts are removable and provide for great seating options. Our customized pressure-relief valves prevent over-inflation in both the tubes and drop-stitch floor. Our new heavy duty floor and extra thick black rub strake protector provide for increased protection against punctures and make for one of the thickest on the market today.
The 9'6" length and 5'3" width is enough to handle big whitewater or sneak through a tight fit in smaller river canyons. It provides one heck of a ride in Class III+ whitewater!
The 9'6" Saturn Whitewater Raft is equally suitable for holding still above a fishing hole, or surfing in your favorite R2 hole. When paddling big whitewater this raft will keep your adrenaline pumping!
Lightweight, fast and easily maneuvered, SATURN rafts outperform bulky and heavy Hypalon rafts. Our designs have allowed for easy maintenance, repair and increased portability.
