Whitewater Canoes

Canoeing.com Definition: A play or performance canoe with extreme rocker designed for one or two paddlers to use exclusively in whitewater. Retrofitted additions include floatation in the bow and stern to prevent the boat from filling with water and/or optional spray skirts, leg and knee straps combined with a kneeling pedestal and toe blocks for maximum control. For more information go to Choosing a Canoe.

SELECT A CANOE BY MATERIAL:
Fiberglass Composites
Light, strong and economical. Compared to other materials, can be shaped more finitely making cleaner entry lines, resulting in an efficient and a quiet ride.
See Materials: Fiberglass> Solo Canoes> Tandem Canoes
Kevlar® Composites
Lighter than fiberglass, strong, durable, and abrasion-resistant. A layered fabric composite, sometimes reinforced with other materials.
See Materials: Kevlar> Solo Canoes> Tandem Canoes
Royalex®
Heavier than composite boats, but more durable and impact-resistant. Popular for canoes designed for whitewater use.
