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 to reduce knee compressions.

This kneeling concept is no different to the very common practice of canoeists who paddle solo in open canoes using the kneeling seat / thwart, or C1 / C2 kayakers sitting on raised saddles.. You do not have to be in the kneeling position when paddling flat water.

TPU versions
TPU version TourCats will be available on request from late Summer 2018. TPU is much tougher and lighter than PVC. A prototype TPU version TourCat-2 Mini produced last year weighed only 7kg!

Logo printing for clubs etc
For a small additional fee, we can print logos on the Cats. Choose where you would like the logo/s to go. On the front thwart, on the front inside tubes (opposite side to the existing Zelgear logo), or on the sides. We require vector format files.
