The RAPTOR is in its element on whitewater, making it the perfect choice for beginner and intermediate paddlers who are seeking to develop and push their whitewater skills. Due to the stability of the hull and responsive design, the boat is suited to accelerate the kayaking learning curve.


The exceptional design of the Raptor has been proven on all types of whitewater, from the largest volume rivers in the world to the steepest creeks and waterfalls.  The displacement hull tracks and carries speed through the water while the rocker and carefully designed edges allow for quick spins as well as graceful carving turns.  The agile responsiveness of the Raptor makes it simply fun to paddle.
The outfitting has been redesigned making it more adjustable, robust, and comfortable than ever before. 
Through the use of “Zelezny Technology” Zet has made the Raptor both stronger and lighter than other kayaks. Other advantages of Zet Kayaks include:
  •  2-year warranty
  •  Minimum number of bolts and holes in the kayak
  •  Useful interior attachments 
  •  Light and functional seat made from a 'hybrid material'
  •  Stable displacement hull
  •  Original and progressive design

Shipping Options

We have multiple distribution centers set up in the USA in Boise ID, Asheville NC, and Syracuse NY. Boats can be picked up from our distribution centers free of charge.  In Asheville it can take up to 48 hours for pickup arrangements to be scheduled.  We do our best to get you your boat as quickly as possible, but some flexibility is required.  Boats can also be picked up at Clackamas River Outfitters in Estacada OR ($100 freight fee applies).

If you are unable to pick up your boat, freight shipping from the YRC terminal to the YRC terminal is available. Freight shipping takes 2-7 days, and your boat must be picked up at the YRC terminal nearest you. The costs of this shipping is $200, but if shipping multiple boats discounts are available.

Our favorite shipping method is roof rack shipping! Roof rack shipping is when your boat gets loaded up on another paddler's roof rack headed to your area from one of the distribution centers. Transportation on the roof rack is free, but we ask that you "tip" your driver $50 to help cover their gas money.
And if your ever headed home from the Payette River and want to make some extra gas money, let us know! We are always looking for roof rack space! Shoot us a message and we can see if we have any boats heading that direction.
