The Frameless Paddlecat 3.90 is the newborn of River Equipments production.
This 49 lbs inflatable boat was completely designed and produced in France, and tested during a 12 day river-trip in Bristish Columbia, Canada, including Chilko, Chilcotin and Fraser rivers.

100% made in France in Lyon area, using ultra-sound cutting and Heat/High frequency welding technologies (no glue). Exclusively German (Mehler) material.
This model was designed and realized to offer a unique Frameless Cat with these goals in mind:
*Ultralight weight: must be carried on flights without extra expenses (stay under the 50 lbs limit)
*Big volume boat for carrying up to 4 paddlers (beginner to expert), and still keeping a shallow draft
*Short length and width, enough for running small (and steep) creeks with 2 paddlers
*Easy to carry on remote places: to be take-down in 3 or 4 parts, with quick and easy assembly
*Safety first with a “second replacement bladder” inside each of the main tubes !
*And still be performant on the water in speed, stability, and manoeuvrability.
That’s what we got !
- 2 main tubes : 12’8” long, 25” Ø, 238 Gal, weights 19 lbs per tube. The nose/tail rocker is over 30” high, so you can easily manage some big waves and holes (you can go really big!)
Those tubes contains an inside bladder in TPU material, smaller in diameter (19”). This bladder separates from the main tube, allowing you to keep floating in case of a puncture to one main tube !
Standarts equipment on tubes :
3 outside 1.5” D-rings, 2 inside 1” D-rings, 2 tail 1” D-rings
2 Push-Push Bravo valves per tube (1 for main tube inflation,1 for the internal bladder)
3 connecting thwarts and floor systems (rod ratchets) per tube
- 1 central part (floor): connects the main tubes together, but will also stiff the all structure.
The bottom is made in PU/PVC blend material ultra resistant, and conected to the main tubes with heavy straps
The thwarts are fixed on the main tubes with a PVC rack system, really fast for assembly/disassembly.
(see pictures for more precisions)
This central part offers an inside area of 66” x 29”, enough for 4 people or 2 people with a lot of stuff.
Standart equipment of floor :
4 footstraps (large size), 1 inflatable central spreader, 3 holes for water evacuation, assembly straps
