NERIS / ZelGear Cataraft line-up

Traditional 'raft fit' sitting catarafts - TourCats
Sitting on top of the main tubes, anchoring both feet through floor foot caps / straps, with the body at a slight angle, as done on common river rafts. These Cats are ideal for long distance river touring, being faster and easier with less drag compared to the normal flat bottomed river rafts. There are anchoring D-rings and space on the central mesh floors to secure your camping kit.


Kneeling seat catarafts - SportCats, VectoR's
Seating is kneeling on top of the flattened tube, sitting on a kneeling seat, with the knees kept in place with knee and thigh straps and body facing 100% forward. Toe rests assist with the 'locking in' - very easy to get off quickly when you need to. More suitable for short distance bursts (EG 40-60 minutes then rest legs) - very comfortable for active whitewater paddling. Seats are designed to take body weight and reduce knee compression.

This kneeling concept is no different to the very common practice of canoeists who paddle solo in open canoes using the kneeling seat / thwart. You do not have to be in the kneeling position when paddling flat water.
