The Habitat features
a displacement hull that lets paddlers land softly off large drops,
while hard chines toward the stern of the hull give great edging,
allowing paddlers to make eddys and maneuver around obstacles.
The Habitat has a number of safety and outfitting
features to go along with great on-water performance. A rotomoded
bow pillar gives the boat strong structural stability and acts as
a step out in case of a pin. The pillar also features a grab handle
for easy carrying of the boat and to secure objects such as keys.
The rotomolded seat gives additional structural integrity to the
boat, and its low-profile design allows easy access to the stern
for stowed gear such as medical kits and throw ropes. Connected
to and directly in front of the seat is a molded area to secure
a throw rope or a 1 litre bottle.
The Habitat has a number of carrying options for
portaging. Besides the bow pillar handle, the Habitat has a pad
for the cockpit rim for comfortable shoulder carrying as well as
an integrated backpack-ready conversion system for longer carries.
The Habitat also has five grab handles for additional carrying options
as well as providing safety, security and attachment points while
on the water.
