Gumotex Pulsar

The Gumotex Pulsar is a white water raft that is very popular with rafting operators, outdoor centres and watersports clubs. The Pulsar range is also a popular choice for white water rafting races. The Pulsar range includes 4 models of different sizes, with several material specifications available. The smallest Pulsar 380 can take from 2-7 persons, and the largest Pulsar 560 will take up to 12 persons!

The fast and rigid hull provides excellent stability and the intergrated self-bailing bottom allows for very fast draining in rapids. The hull features several inflatation chambers which allows for greater inflatation pressure (3.7 PSI max.), rigidity and performance. The Pulsar range features non-slip seat surfaces, foot straps, safety ropes on the side tubes and several grab handles to provide passengers with plenty of support and security during a river run. The Pulsar rafts are constructed from the incredibly tough Nitrilon, with options for added durability with the hull constructed from Nitrilon Extra or Niltrilon with Protection Foil for increased durability in extra demanding environments.

The Pulsar rafts have been chosen several times as the official race boats for the European Championships (most recently for the European Rafting Champs 2016 in Slovenia) and also the official race boat for the 2003 World Championships that took place in the Czech Republic on the Vltava River. These are high specification river rafting boats for those wanting top performance and durability.

Gumotex Inflatable Kayak Construction

The Gumotex Pulsar is constructed from Nitrilon® material. This is a lighter version of the material used in rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) construction. Nitrilon® is manufactured in-house by Gumotex allowing for complete control over product quality.

Material composition:

  1. High strength Polyester (PES) fibre
  2. An outer layer of synthetic rubber
  3. Inner layer of a mixture based on natural rubber

The material is highly resistant to abrasion, aging and UV with a minimum tensile strength (1) of 3000/3000 N (sample 20 x 5 cm). This makes Nitrilon fabric an excellent material for the construction of inflatable watercraft.

Gumotex Manufacturing Process

Gumotex have been producing high quality inflatable products in the Czech Republic for over 60 years using unique materials and technologies, making Gumotex inflatables some of the very best in the world!

  • Each Gumotex inflatable kayak/canoe/boat/raft is manufactured by hand in the Czech Republic.
  • After the materials have been assembled and vulcanised, each & every boat is pressure tested and left inflated for 12 hours.
  • After final assembly they are inflated for a further 6 hours before having a final inspection and being prepared for packaging.

This means that each Gumotex Inflatable has been tested under inflatation twice before it is packaged! Such stringent testing and quality control has led to Gumotex being accredited with ISO9001 Quality Assured Management Systems, and this means that you can have complete confidence in the quality of your Gumotex product as soon as you open the box!

Gumotex do not use PVC in any of their boats - PVC products release Phthalates into the environment and this substance has a negative effect on human and environmental health.
