'Afon', similar to 'Avon', is derived from the Celtic British word for 'river'; this simple word in itself says everything about this canoe.
Rivers can be tranquil, or they can be wild, and the Venture Afon is a true enthusiast's canoe in which you can enjoy either variety as well as everything between, whether paddled solo or tandem.
High volume ends, a flared bow, a subtle V-hull, and paddle cutaways all produce a canoe that is responsive and an utter joy to paddle, whilst continuous hull curvature gives a progressive feel, and high secondary stability.
The Afon tracks beautifully when flat, but heel it over onto its high-stability chines and the paddle cutaways will allow you to perfectly place your blade and swing the boat around on the spot; on the way downriver you'll notice the flared, high volume bow picking up through features and keeping you dry and headed in the right direction.
CL is a three layer construction that gives an exceptional Weight-to-Rigidity ratio, taking advantage of the fact that only the outer layers of the material are required to bear compressive and tensile forces by using a lighter, rigid foam inner layer; this foam core has the added benefit of giving the whole canoe enough inherent buoyancy to keep it at the waterline in the event of swamping. The HDPE used for the outer layers is both highly durable and readily repairable.
Exclusive to Venture, TriLite increases hull stiffness and reduces weight, enhancing the performance of our leading hull designs for a more responsive boat.
Easier to rooftop, easier to carry, easier to paddle.
