  • Features

    • This special canoe is unusually light and responsive: layers of Kevlar® fabric encapsulate a foam core which extends up the hull in multiple ribs
    • Resin impregnates all layers except the foam core, reducing overall weight
    • Double layers of fabric along the keel enhances durability
    • Symmetrical, shallow-V hull offers excellent tracking and superior performance in rough water
    • Moderately rockered hull offers a great balance between maneuverability and speed
    • Lightweight aluminum gunwales attach to hull via rivets and add responsive stiffness to the hull
    • Features stained and contoured cane seats and a sculpted portage yoke
    • The Mad River Explorer 16 KX Ultralite canoe features walnut carry handles that are shaped to fit comfortably in your hands

    Made in USA.
