River Running Kayaks

We like to think of river running kayaks as the all mountain, enduro, or freeride category of kayaking. These kayaks are confident boosting with their combination of stability and maneuverability. Like many of us going out for dawn patrol or evening social paddles this is our boat of choice. Most designs feature planing hulls allowing for great primary stability and the ability to surf waves.

  • Jackson Karma M is the newest addition to the Jackson family of creeking kayaks. The Karma inherited the best parts of its siblings and yet adding speed, stability, and maneuverability. The rocker profile on the Karma makes for easy downstream paddling over waves and holes. It really blasts through most problems. The Karma adds more hull speed into and out of drops that carry you past … well things you don’t want anything to do with. The Karmas huge sidewalls lend to great secondary stability, plus it keeps you drier and faster. Water shedding deck makes for a predictable resurfacing. We’ll be using the Karma for some of our harder river racing. Why? Well this is directly due to the shape of the hull rocker, hull, and dry bow. Fast, stable, and forgiving this crazy great design turns predictably, nails boofs, and floats over most things in its way with speed and grace.
