Alpacka Tango- Adventure Racer

From: $55.00

If your adventure involves traversing flat water the Tango is your ticket.  Built with adventure racers in mind, the Tango is the fastest tandem (or packraft in general) that Alpacka makes for flat water.  But it’s not limited to flat water, it can also handle up to Class II rivers and possibly a little beyond that on bigger rivers.  It is a very long packraft so maneuvering it through technical creeks would be challenging.

The internal cargo fly gives you options for storage for mulit day adventures and the length means even long legged paddlers can stretch out.  It is a bucket boat, but the inflated floor will buy you some time if you go through a splashy section (you won’t have to dump right away to avoid sitting in water).

The Tango is a full-sized, two-person kayak style packraft for speed and comfort on lakes, coastal areas, and rivers up to class II. Its our fastest tandem model and features a low profile hull with a full length inflatable floor. The rear paddler sits on a lace in seat and has an inflatable backrest for support. The front paddler has an inflatable seat and backrest. Both paddlers have ample leg room for kayak style paddling.

Due to the lower volume tubes and to maximize speed, the Tango is not available in a self bailing configuration. So its great for flat water rivers and protected lakes and coastal areas, but not recommended for significant whitewater. Its ideal for two adults or paddling with an older child who can do their own paddling and wants to stretch out their legs. The extra speed also makes it an ideal adventure racing packraft. We prefer the Ranger and Forager for families with dogs and small children.

**Packed size is a reference measurement based on folding each lengthwise edge of the boat to the center and rolling from the bow. There are many other methods of rolling and folding the boats that will result in a different packed size that may be more or less efficient for packing depending on the situation.
***Max Capacity is the maximum total weight (paddlers and cargo) that the boat can reasonably carry in flatwater under ideal conditions. Actual capacity for any given trip will vary widely based on the paddler’s skill and water conditions. Please review our weight carrying capacity guide for further details.

When in Doubt, Contact Us About Availability

Because of the variability in transit days our business model creates unique challenges for booking software and makes it difficult to display a 100% accurate availability calendar.  If the raft you want isn’t available for your desired dates, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly as it may be an error in our system.  In many cases we can also ship the day after you book and override the default 6 day transit buffer.  We highly recommend contacting us directly for groups of 4 or more as well.  Contact info: 406-272-6468
