All Aramid. Our 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.

Unbelievably Responsive   rating
I love this boat. I have paddled this boat in the IXP layup with kneeling drops. Switching between sitting and kneeling is fairly easy for me(I'm 5'10" and 150LBS). I love the responsiveness while kneeling and my stability is minimally affected when I shift to a sitting position. Symmetrical rocker gives me confidence in my maneuvering ability.
