Exterior resin coated for maximum weight savings.

Color: Black carbon weave. Approx 28lbs



All Aramid. Our proprietary yellow and black makes a stunning moiré pattern. Full wet bag minimizes resin and creates the lightest weight canoe available. Foam core, ribs and internal reinforcements make a stiff, efficient hull. The choice of flat-water paddlers everywhere. Exterior resin coated for maximum weight savings.

Color: Northstar proprietary Aramid weave. Approx 30lbs



Innegra outer with Aramid reinforcements and foam core. An alternative to BlackLite that is economically priced, but at the expense of some additional weight and lowered durability. Exterior gel coated.
