    All Achilles Riverboats are loaded with the features you want to have on any type of whitewater. From the basic fabric and construction through such details as strategic placement of “D” rings, Achilles quality is evident in every aspect of our boats. No one in the world possesses more advanced inflatable boat technology than Achilles, and this technology is found in every Achilles Riverboat.

    Multiple “D” Rings You will find stainless steel “D” rings located throughout Achilles boats to insure you have one wherever it may be needed, including 80mm rings for frame tie-down. All “D” rings are doubly reinforced to make sure they hold tight under the most extreme conditions.

    The Toughest Fabric The tough nylon core fabric of every Achilles Riverboat is coated with both Hypalon® and Neoprene® for unsurpassed durability. Hypalon® is calendered under extremely high pressure to the fabric exterior to provide the best protection against damage from abrasions, punctures and weathering. Two interior layers of Neoprene® insure that all Achilles boats will be extra airtight, and retain optimum inflation levels longer.

    The Strongest Seams Achilles produces the only Riverboats with seams that are overlapped a full inch and reinforced with seam tape inside and out. Some riverboats depend on a one-half inch overlap with no seam tape. Achilles seams are made to be the strongest in the industry.

    More in the Floor The floors of all standard Achilles Riverboats are a heavy-duty 1260 denier and fully-wrapped for ultimate safety. They are also reinforced with wear patches at potential abrasion points for double protection.

    Recessed Valves All Achilles Riverboats feature recessed valves which stay out of the way of passengers, lines and gear. This helps avoid any damage to valves when loading or transporting gear.

    Hypalon® exterior for toughness

    Heavy-duty Nylon Polyester core Two layers of Neoprene®

    for unsurpassed air retention

  • Designed for serious, recreational river-running as well as professional use, the Achilles RS Series offers many of the same outstanding features as our professional boats.

    The tough nylon core fabric

    of all RS Riverboats is coated with Hypalon®, and the

    fully-wrapped floors are a full 840 denier. A long list of standard features includes two fixed thwarts, multiple air chambers, frame wear patches (except RS110), numerous “D” rings and much more. Even with this, these rugged boats are lightweight enough for outfitters and private users to carry and transport with relative ease.

    Nothing has been left out in making Achilles RV Series riverboats the strongest available for professional use. Both the 840 denier tube fabric and the additional 840 denier fully-wrapped floors are coated with DuPont Hypalon® for unsurpassed protection against damage from abrasions, punctures and weathering.

    All “D” rings have been strengthened

    to last on all stress points and tie downs. Plus, you have the guarantee of famous Achilles quality and attention to detail on all the great standard features which make these boats ready for any professional use.

    These rugged, self-bailing riverboats are built to handle any professional use. Available in both two and three-thwart designs, they offer all the features big water outfitters demand. Naturally they are made with sturdy, 80% Hypalon®-reinforced fabric and the unsurpassed construction offered only by Achilles.

    Self-bailing system, fully

    wrapped, reinforced floors, lace-in thwarts, generous D-rings,

    frame wear patch... nothing has been overlooked in producing these “top-of-the-line” boats. Still, they are extremely lightweight for easy carrying and trans- porting. You won’t find a stronger, better-built riverboat ready to go to work for you.

    KSB Kayaks deliver the most fun you’ll ever get out of white water. They are self-bailing and made with tough, Hypalon®-reinforced nylon fabric...just like our rugged riverboats.

    They also feature multiple air chambers plus inflatable floors and lace-in, adjustable thwarts.
