Northstar Canoes-Firebird Starlite
Availability:More Information


The myth of the Firebird, like the Phoenix, is one of reincarnation and rising from the ashes, much like Northstar did from a previous entity. The Firebird offers the versatility of the Phoenix in a smaller package. Those who want to play on flatwater or in whitewater will be drawn to the Firebird.



All Aramid. Northstar's proprietary yellow and black makes a stunning moiré pattern. Full wet bag minimizes resin and creates the lightest weight canoe available. Foam core, ribs, and internal reinforcements make a stiff, efficient hull. The choice of flat-water paddlers everywhere. Exterior resin coated for maximum weight savings.

Color: Northstar proprietary Aramid weave.
