The 126DD is a rowdy little raft. The rocker and shape of the bow and stern crash into waves, and then climb up and over them like a 4-wheel drive. The 126DD is excellent for R2-R5 paddle teams. You can also outfit it with a frame if you’re into creeky, multi-day river trips. Its short waterline makes it to quick maneuver, and its width provides extra stability and elbowroom for paddlers.
What makes the AIRE 126DD special?
Diminished Tubes: 126DD bow and stern tubes reduce down from 19” to 14”, keeping it light and maneuverable.
Kicked Up Ends: The 126DD has a 13” kick on both the bow and stern. Since it’s so small it tends to climb right over the waves.
Wide Beam: If you are looking for a Puma sized raft but need a little more side-to-side stability and width for a dry box, the 126DD is it!
