The Rebel has been designed to excel with a wide variety of loads - making it ideal for use on longer trips where you may not only have significant gear to take, but a continually lightening load as the trip goes on.
Silverbirch have worked hard to optimise the secondary stability - this was important feedback from the early prototypes, not in terms of literal stability but in terms of the transition from primary to secondary, and how clearly defined the rail feels as a consequence. The production Rebel 11 not only 'sits' naturally on the rail, but has massively boosted secondary stability making it an easy to paddle and confidence inspiring canoe.
The Silverbirch whitewater canoes come outfitted with a custom Silverbirch bulkhead saddle made from 30kgm3 density minicell foam.
The saddle is fitted as standard with Yakima footrests. The footrests are now fixed to the saddle with bonded 40mm polyethylene dowels to ensure maximum durability.
A fitting kit including foam sidewalls, foam shims, glue, sandpaper, and a surf-form is supplied to allow you to customise your boat to your needs the second it arrives.
Duratough is a thickness optimised single layer hull which is made of the toughest and most durable polymer we can find.
It is maximised for impact resistance and stiffness which is continually tested, both in the lab and by our highly abusive brand ambassadors around the world ensuring it is the best it can be.
We then feed this research back to our polymer company, who work with us to continually improve Duratough's resilience.
Every shell is cooked to the perfect temperature by our in-house computer controlled ovens, and then undergoes extensive testing to ensure it is up to the rigours of modern OC1 paddling.
Duralite is an impact resistant three layer foam cored laminate making it ideal for use on bigger volume whitewater, or for paddlers who wish to prioritise the weight and stiffness of their boat over its rock bashing ability.
Duralite is a fantastic material and performs well where you might traditionally use boats made of materials such as Royalex and being made of linear polyethylene it is easier to repair than these should you puncture it.The outer skin is made with an incredibly stiff and tough whitewater grade plastic – the best we can find! The foam has been optimised to have a low density and to work with the inner and outer layers providing durability. To make the most of the superior materials we have optimised the distribution between the layers giving a balanced finish.
