The Loki is designed to revive the classic moves that we learned
when we played the river the first time. If you want smooth linked
cartwheels, a smile on every eddyline and enjoy serious vertical time
then this is the boat for you. The Loki is loose and fast on the
river and ocean waves. Vertical moves are more controlled and
impressive than in a short boat. The Loki is a great downriver play
boat, its extra length means more speed, making eddies and must make
ferry glides easier and more controlled.
The Shiva – Ultimate Steep Creeker
The Shiva has a rounded hull, soft stern chines, a high bow rocker
and loads of volume in the bow and stern. These features give you
softer landings on big drops, rear driving force when you want it,
awesome boofability and resurfacing capability. The rounded and high
deck, with a high centre of volume, counters a low centre of gravity
for easy rollability. If you are running big drops and pushing harder
lines the Shiva is the one you want.
We took what you loved about the original Nomad, the forgiveness, the predictability, and the stability, and added modern creeking necessities. The new Nomad has increased volume to stay on top of the burliest whitewater, reshaped decks to aid resurfacing, more rocker to keep the bow up, and more speed to carry past any drop. The small is perfectly sized for smaller paddlers, while still providing enough volume to stay on the surface of the rowdiest rivers. Contour Ergo Outfitting adds strength, security, and comfort.
The new Nomad is ready for any whitewater adventure...are you?
