If you’re looking for one boat that truly does it all, then look no further than the 2024 NINJA. Our most versatile creek boat yet. The brain child of team paddler Honza Choutka, the Ninja is the boat to use when the rivers are steep and technical, when you want to win races, or when you just crave having some fun and throwing down while mashing through rowdy bits in complete control.
The Zet NINJA has taken more than 5 years to develop, with extensive testing by numerous world class paddlers. The NINJA has excellent stability in squirrely water and features a fast, nimble planing hull. Its progressive bow makes it smooth to boof and skip over the top of different river features. Just the right amount of stern rocker make stern squirts possible and horizontal and vertical eddy turns easy. The Zet NINJA is fast, fun and will make you feel just like the river Ninja, you know you are.
ZET’s simple yet proven outfitting design remains robust, fully adjustable, and comfortable. For the new CHILI, ZET’s existing adjustable knee brace design has been simplified for easier cockpit entry, greater comfort and better boat control. A sturdy, closed-cell foam seat protects you from bigger impacts and provides considerable warmth compared to padded “water sponging” seats. Both front and rear pillar braces are formed seamlessly with the cockpit rim for added structural rigidity, safety and functionality. A supportive, draw cord+cleat adjusting back-band sits firmly in place while providing unrestricted access to the rear of the boat. For the footrest, ZET provides their optional standard, adjustable bulkhead, or an un-drilled hull fitted with a customizable mini-cell foam foot-block to achieve the lightest, driest boat possible (only available during our preorder period).
