Dragorossi is not supposed to be a mainstream brand that supplies designs that look and feel like everyone else's kayaks. We wanted to create a line of kayaks for paddlers looking for designs that have that special touch - fun, friendly but unique at the same time.
That does not mean we design kayaks for experts and pro’s. Sure, we have those too, but the reality is that the majority of Dragorossi paddlers are normal paddlers, with normal skills and normal lives. We work, we have commitments and sadly we have far too little time to paddle. So our designs must be fun, easy, forgiving, predictable, and did we mention fun? Our goal is to deliver all this while also being unique and exciting - even challenging.
Dragorossi has an whole line of kayaks. Everything from easy-to- understand playboats to the most confidence inspiring creekers are all part of the Dragorossi line. High end shapes, like Mafia, Fish and Squashtail are, requiring advanced skill sets to make them really work. The Critical Mass is on the opposite end of the spectrum - a design so impossibly easy and so targeted towards making the hardest river runs possible and safe, that it’s almost “too easy” for most people on most rivers: if it makes class 5 feel like class 4, then that almost makes class 3 so easy it’s boring! So it’s our mid range designs like the Mad Boy, Pintail and Thruster that have most people excited. Boats that any paddler can take to average rivers and have a superb time. Just because you’re not dropping 100ft drops or doing 4-stage linked air moves does not mean you want to be bored by your kayak, and that’s what DragoRossi is really about. So, let’s get a DragoRossi kayak and have fun!!
*All Dragorossi kayaks are made from our proprietary plastic HDTP. With HDTP we are able to offer you the stiffness or a blow- molded kayak, and the impact resistance of crosslink without either limiting our ability to mold complex shapes, or using materials which are hazardous to the workers.
DragoRossi has always been very attentive to environmental issues and preservation of our planet. All kayaks and canoes are produced using clean energy in our solar system. Photovoltaics can generate electricity with no greenhouse gas emissions, unlike fossil fuels, are highly polluting. It is estimated that for every kilowatt hour of solar energy produced, you avoid the emission of more than 500 grams of carbon dioxide.
