The Nirvana brings speed, stability, and maneuverability to any class of whitewater. It inspires confidence like never before. High bow rocker keeps you dry while flying over waves and holes, making the Medium Nirvana a sub-9’ racing machine. However, unlike many racing kayaks, the Nirvana is accessible— both responsive and forgiving— such that it feels at home on everything from beginner whitewater to the most demanding Class-V rapids. If you want a performance inspiring river-running/creek boat that’ll knock rapids down a class, the Nirvana is the boat for you! Available in two sizes, M and L.
New for 2022, the Nirvana includes our Bees Knees Thigh Hook System. The Bees Knees give Jackson Kayak whitewater boats a more secure knee fit for a better feel. This addresses the #1 request for improvement from our customers, and follows the JK way of valuing innovation and simplicity. They require no tools to adjust and are comfortable and lightweight.
