Re: Riot kayaks? Why so unpopular?

A lack of new designs, the Atro and magnum are from the Mid 2000's, I think their touring designs are newer, but not by much.

The stretch of river Trent below Staythorpe weir to Newark Dyke in NON NAVIGABLE.
How is it possible to paddle over something that is non-navigable? by navigating it, it is definitively proven to be navigable.

Re: Riot Boogie 54 - Existance

Regarding the issues with Riots memory, it's probably due to them now being a routing/sea kayak company; that seem to have forgotten their whitewater roots since Corran and Steve Fisher left. Perhaps with the exception of still churning out new riot magnums.

At 85 it felt fine, I think the design would handle weight better that the old one too, it felt much less trippy to paddle

Lets say that the "leader" of the group has 5 years of experience paddling on whitewater and has been led down that section of river once, the year previous.

I don't think PTFE would work very well, it's designed for sealing on the threads, rather than giving a face-seal like we get with washers on a kayak

Re: Is it true that.........?

It appears kayaks imported from the USA into the EU are subject to a new 25% tariff, as part of the on going tit for tat trade war. Those Dagger boats made in the UK are not affected by this unwelcome development. To my understanding possible solutions being consider are the borrowing of the mouldi...

Re: Are Zet / Pyranha / Dagger footrest bolts compatible with Riots?

How old is the magnum Most canadian made Riot boats have imperial threads, whereas I think the newer, made in china stuff uses the standard M6. I'd say that your best bet would be to take it to yoour local canoe shop and ask them, they'll probably have a few various bolts and things for you to try..
