As low as £999.00

SKU
SIL-FF14-SL

A canoe that would be at home in a wide-variety of conditions and with a wide variety of loads. A canoe that would paddle well on open stretches of flat water, but would also be at home on moderate moving water. A canoe that paddles well with a light payload, but is also more than capable of extended tripping.

Crucially - a solo canoe that is light enough to carry solo.

    The deep dish yoke is contoured to provide comfort whilst carrying the canoe on the shoulders as well as providing stiffness to the boat. End loops provide a strong attachment point for painters and a attachment point in the case of a whitewater rescue.

    Two lacing options are available:

    Bow and stern lacing - for attaching air bags or blocks.

    Full length lacing - allows attachement points for airbags or blocks as well as other equipment being carried in the boat.

    Every canoe with ash gunwales is hand finished with pride at Silverbirch's Norfolk production facility.

    After carefully fitting the ash profiles, the gunwales are planed and oiled by hand, and then matched with ash end plates, ash handles and carrying yoke, and webbing bound ash seats. Not only does it give a beautiful, natural finish, but is several kilos lighter than the vinyl alternative.

    A kneeling thwart provides a comfortable and efficient paddling position for a solo paddler.

     Duracore Plus

    Duracore plus boasts a 200% increase in stiffness and impact resistance over Silverbirch's Duracore laminate, whilst also benefitting from increased UV protection and improved durability.

    Duracore plus is the ideal choice for those who prioritise durability over weight and is ideal for professional use.

     

    Duralite

    The outer skin is made with an incredibly stiff and tough whitewater grade plastic – the best Silverbirch can find, the foam has been optimized to have a lower density, giving a thicker core than that used in Duracore, and the material distribution between the layers has been optimised to make the most of the superior materials.

    The result? Stiffer, lighter, and yet just more durable!

    The noticeable weight saving over the Duracore laminate puts many models made with Duralite into close competition with more expensive canoes produced with composite or royalex construction methods.
