The updated design of PALAVA features a sportier look and better handling qualities achieved by narrower bow and stern combined with an increased length of the hull. Increased inner space offers more room for baggage and a greater variability of seat positioning. Wide horizontally installed seats offer comfortable seating, and combined with the provided thigh straps allow safe kneeling while paddling in rapids. The canoe is suitable for overnight trips and can be used on rivers up Gr. 3 white water as well as on sheltered waters of lakes and similar.
