We started the 9-foot fast creeker river runner revival and the Alpha is our latest creation in the class. This machine has a large smooth transitioning bow rocker to gobble up holes and boofs while the center section of the hull is flatter to help with speed, stability, and agility. Longer boats no longer have to be hard to paddle. This baby is nimble! The subtle kick rockered stern profile is modeled after the Braaap which gives it a predictable quick carving fun feel on the water. If you are looking for a confidence-inspiring boat that can make your local run fun or take care of you on the hardest whitewater you paddle, give the Alpha a try.
The Alpha is a longer platform coming in at 9'2" for the 90 and TBD on the 75 (not sure of official length at this point) where as the Delta Vs are 8'6" and 8'2". So the Alpha is a faster design but a big part of it's design intent was to make a nimble 9' boat. The Deltas make up for their shorter slower speed by being nimble and user friendly.
The main difference between the Remix and Alpha series is rocker profile. Though the lengths are similar the Alpha has greater bow rocker to really get up and over waves and holes. The Alpha rocker profile creates speed in whitewater because it stays high and dry over everything without slowing down. Whereas the Remix has a lower longer waterline that has more speed in easier water. The Remix has a longer smoother rocker profile for an easy predictable feel where as the Alpha has a higher performance kick rocker similar to the Braaap behind the seat that gives it a zippy, carving, performance feel.
