More In-Depth Info
The Maverik Performance is the performance version (as the name states) of the Maverik series.
It comes with snap-in thigh straps and removable foot braces which will give you much more leverage and security while kayaking.
This inflatable kayak is designed for recreational river use but can handle many different kinds of water conditions.
I would suggest to anyone looking at this kayak to read my much more detailed review of the NRS Maverik to get a better idea of what this inflatable kayak is about and then remember that this particular version will give you greater options and performance for river playing because of the extra features.
NRS kayaks are often used as rentals by outfitters and one thing you can be sure of is that it is sturdy and rugged and with a little care could possibly last you a lifetime.
The size of this kayak makes it ideal for a lighter person and is easy to transport to any desired location.
This performance IK is best suited for whitewater with up to class III rapids. I think it is ideal for a beginner to intermediate kayaker who wants a stable whitewater inflatable kayak geared for good performance.
The Mav Performance is light enough to easily take traveling with no extra fees at the airport. It also has a 10 year warranty which says a lot about the great quality of construction.
