News of the new Gumotex Twists made of slicker, full-coat Nitrilon Light came out in 2015. The 3.60-metre T2 double (left) goes for £340 and weighs 11kg (2kg more than the old model). The 2.6-metre T1 (green, right) costs £270 and weighs 7.4kg – a claimed 1.4 more than the old model.
Both are made from Nitrilon Light (the new name for the Lite Pack) and finally come with proper removable and adjustable seats and footrests. On the old Twists both these things were regarded as cost and weight saving measures and even though the boats were very light a mate who has both found them not so robust (he’s since bought a T2) Now with the slick fabric coated on both inside and out, the boat ought to be tougher and will certainly be much quicker drying.
