Product Description

Anfibio Sigma TXV Packraft

The Anfibio Sigma TXV is an ultralight packraft with ample space, ideal for long backpacking trips and adventure races on easy flowing rivers and lakes with partners, children, dogs, or any other large load hauling, hence the 'TX' for Team Cross.

Special Edition with Viewing Window

The special edition "V" stands for an integrated "Viewing" window at the Packraft's bottom. While paddling, you can explore the underwater world. It makes the boat particularly appealing for:

  • While fishing, scouting for fish,
  • Treasure hunt and shipwreck
  • Children's fish observations,
  • Divers' visual contact,
  • Beaver surveillance,
  • Examining fishing nets, traps, and underwater structures,
  • Photographing underwater without getting wet,
  • Access to the water world without causing sedimentation,
  • Geology, hydrology, and biology excursions

Water pressure causes the viewing window to curve slightly inwards towards a magnifying glass.

Configuration and Outfit.

The inner dimensions of the boat are sufficient for two people, with a length of 160 cm and a width of 39 cm, but the outer dimensions are compact: the tube diameter tapers to 27 cm at the side, and the bow and stern (symmetrical) have a diameter of 50 cm. The parallel hull measures 93 cm in width and 260 cm in length.

The boat includes an incredible seat with integrated backrests. Optionally, a second seat can be purchased. The position of the front seat can be adjusted (backward or forward). However, in order to save weight and space, baggage can also be used as seating (like dry bags, sleeping mats). The seats can also be purchased separately, and there are additional options.

The 30x30 cm viewing window in front of the rear seat allows you to look into the water without difficulty even while paddling. Even when traveling in tandem, the second seat does not obscure the view.

There are 6 tie-downs (2 at the stern, 4 at the bow) for securing luggage, providing grab loops, or fastening a DeckPack.

Material and Workmanship.

The Anfbio Sigma TXV is made of a special fabric (210/420 urethane nylon), which has a high tear and abrasion resistance despite its light weight. The smooth and shiny surface of the tube's coating is particularly scratch resistant.

All of the boat's seams are fully welded, and the tube seams are additionally sewn, resulting in a completely glue-free construction. This saves weight, money, and the environment! We provide a 3-year warranty on materials and workmanship.

In its special edition, a viewing window made of transparent TPU film is also welded into the floor. Because the TPU film has some stretch, you should not step directly on it when boarding. Otherwise, the abrasion resistance of the TPU film is the same as that of the boat's coating.

The reinforced lower front and rear tube segments with floor fabric panels provide increased robustness when in contact with the ground. However, as an ultralight boat, it should still be treated with care, especially when fully loaded.

Application

The Sigma TXV is an ideal backpacking vessel. Because of the interior space, it is ideal for sharing with a partner. Dog owners, hunters, fishermen, and sailors will appreciate it as a large single boat capable of transporting large loads.

The ultra-light boat in the special edition with viewing window is ideal not only for trekking tours, adventures, and excursions into calm and easy flowing waters, but also for tours with children to discover the unique underwater landscapes.

  • Simple river travel,
  • Adventure races and expeditions,
  • Trekking through river sections
  • Sailing,
  • Geocaching (dinghy)

Because the model lacks a spray skirt and has a smaller tube diameter, it is not suitable for white water, especially when paddled by two people.

Use

The boat is also paddled in the kayak or canoe style and is infated with a large nylon infation bag that attaches to the boat via a screw-in valve.

Of course, no inflatable is indestructible, but in the (unlikely) event of damage, repairs can be done in the field in a few minutes with LifePatch (in the case of the viewing window, better transparent Patch'n Go), which bonds well to the urethane surface. Stormsure, a liquid urethane sealant, can be used to seal small pinholes.

Carbon footprint

Since 2018, all Anfibio Packrafts produced have been carbon offset through selected climate protection projects.
