Simple yet tasteful, the ZET Chili has been flavoured for fun.
Combing the elegance of a modern slalom boat with the playfulness of a river runner, the Chili has the right ingredients for all levels of paddlers to enjoy.
It has a fast, agile hull and a long smooth rocker which will make surfing waves and gliding through holes a breeze. Sporty and nimble, its flat stern is guaranteed to spice up your eddy turns and add zest to your squirts and splats. The versatility of the Chili makes it the ‘go-to’ choice for paddlers looking to unlock the extra fun in their river runs. Why just paddle a river when you can play on it too?
ZET’s simple, yet proven, outfitting remains robust, fully adjustable, and comfortable. The thigh braces have been reshaped for greater comfort. A sturdy, closed-cell foam seat protects you from bigger impacts and provides considerable warmth. Both front and rear pillar braces are formed seamlessly with the cockpit rim for added structural rigidity, safety, and functionality. A supportive, dual ratcheting back-band sits firmly in place, while allowing gear to be stowed in the rear of the boat.
For the footrest, a customisable closed-cell foam foot block is used to achieve the lightest, driest boat possible.
