The Nortik Scubi 3 combines the baggage-minimizing airboat with the running properties of a folding boat. Many manufacturers have already dared to develop this hybrid, but never before has the topic been approached with so much understanding of the possibilities.
The linkage is used to stretch the boat lengthways and to sharpen the stems. The rest of the boat remains an air boat.
This adds up to the following positive properties:
Low weight, small pack size, unrestricted suitability for beginners, but also unfamiliar rigidity for an airboat, direct response, faster reactions, smoothness, straight-line stability, smooth running behavior in rough water, less wind resistance.
A very solid seat construction with a significantly higher center of gravity for effortless paddling and a decoupling of the seat from the constantly wet bilge go well with this.
The whole thing is completed with a "real", adjustable back strap. For higher demands, a spray deck and control system can also be purchased.
Complete equipment with backpack pannier and piston pump with pressure gauge.
