The Mamba has been fully redesigned in 2012. The trusted river running and creeking performance is now beefier and has been bolstered with an extensive set of enhancements that maintain the Mamba's well-known predictability, while pushing the envelope in its capabilities to tackle creeks or big water rapids. New larger sizes offer more volume and better volume distribution than the previous Mamba Creeker. The rocker breaks and profile have been tested and engineered for more speed and crisper carving. Still easy to edge, stable and even a little playful, it's the perfect boat for learning the ropes or pushing it to the next level. Strengthening this model still are safety improvements. The bow grab handle has been repositioned for easier access, and a new grab handle has been added near the cockpit. In addition, a molded-in stern foam wall holder has been integrated for the ultimate in structural integrity.
