The Lettmann Manta is both longer and faster than the Granate. It has been designed for both perforce and ease of use. At 272cm long the Lettmann Manta is short enough to compete within the extreme river race classification.
The Manta is designed to be a highly competitive kayak for extreme races. At 272cm it is within the allowed length limit and the most noticeable features are the aggressive bow rocker and stern spoiler . The purpose of the rocker on the bow is to lift and clear holes whilst keeping you on track & in control to move forward.
The stern “spoiler” design assists in exiting holes by boosting the boat forward & out to maintain your momentum; great for speed in a race and equally useful for surviving gnarly hydraulics.Lettmann
The Lettmann Manta is available in a Creek and Race version. The race version is built to be lighter and faster than the standard creek version.
